Oatmeal not only tastes good, but it also has loads of health benefits, especially because of its high protein content. Read on to know some of the high protein oatmeal recipes.
Oatmeal is considered as one of the most healthy breakfast options, mainly because it is loaded with nutrients and is also very filling. It also contains a very high amount of soluble and insoluble fibers. The insoluble fibers help to fight cancer due to its capability to attack bile acids.
On the other hand, soluble fibers reduce cholesterol and also slow down starch digestion. This is very beneficial to people suffering from diabetes. Not only this, but oats also contain zinc, copper, iron, vitamin E, selenium, and magnesium. Oatmeal also contains a legume-like protein known as avenin.
The amount of protein storage is almost 80% in it. In simple language, just one cup of oats contains about 6 g of protein. Oat protein is almost equivalent to that found in meat, egg, and milk. So if you are keeping a check on your daily calorie intake (which everyone should do), you should replace bread and butter with the given healthy oatmeal recipes.

  • ⅓ cup brown sugar substitute
  • 1 cup oatmeal

For making oatmeal flour, place 2 cups of oatmeal in a mixer and blend at high speed. Sift until only a little bit is left. Add this flour with oatmeal to make one cup. Now, blend sugar substitute and butter until well blended. Add in vanilla and egg white and continue blending until smooth.
In a separate bowl, mix protein powder, oatmeal flour, baking soda, and cinnamon. When almost done, add in oatmeal and mix well. Roll this mixture into a ball and divide into 4 pieces. Roll out a ball from the dough about 1 inch in diameter and press it flat. Bake the cookies in oven for ten minutes, at 350°F.
