There is a previous post from not to long ago about the perfect porridge. The main point in it referred to how oats have made a huge comeback in recent times.
Porridge has come a long way from the days when your only options depended on what was in the cupboard after the weekly shop. Whatever the brand, the end result was the same – a colourless bowl of bland grool that even Oliver Twist wouldn’t mind giving a miss.
I… could… not… stand porridge as a child. It never had any taste because, adding anything other than sugar or honey was never an option in my house (that’s no direspect to my parents, it’s just how many households ate). These days things are different. Search for “Proates” on any social media platform and you’ll see what I mean.
It goes without saying that the key ingredient that makes these oats so delicious is the Fulfill White Chocolate & Cookie Dough protein bar. The combination of white chocolate and raspberries is a winner, every time!
The recipe below is tailored to my own needs but the quantities & nutritional value will differ depending on the needs/goals of each person so feel free to adjust accordingly to suit you.
80g porridge oats
200 – 300ml of unsweetened almond milk
20g vanilla whey protein powder
10g toasted flaked almonds
1 Fulfill protein bar – any flavour
5g raw Cacao powder (optional)
Toast the almonds in a dry pan over a low heat. Mix the milk and the oats then microwave for 2 minutes or more until they become fluffy or most of the milk has been absorbed. Mix on the protein powder (and cacao if using for more rich oats) crush up the bar and spread on top along with the berries and the almonds.
Its as easy as that, hope you enjoy this one. Protein bars would not usually be a staple of my diet but on occasion I will enjoy one either with oats or melted over pancakes.
I’m always intrigued trying new food combinations and concepts. Any ideas feel free to comment below.
