We need to have a little discussion even though I LOVE OATMEAL. When you eat oatmeal for breakfast, have you ever been ravenous two hours later? A discussion regarding a protein-rich kind of oats is necessary. i.e Cottage Cheese Oatmeal
On its own, oatmeal doesn’t contain a lot of protein or fat, unless you make it with milk instead of water. In essence, you are consuming a bowl of carbs. I don’t criticize carbohydrates at all (I adore them! ), but I do criticize skipping a balanced meal that will leave you feeling full for several hours. The ideal recipe? carbs, lean protein, and good fats.
How to Make High Protein Oatmeal?
I’m working on a comprehensive blog article that will cover all the ways I like to add protein to oatmeal, but for today’s dish, cottage cheese is the main ingredient.
How To Make Cottage Cheese Oatmeal?
You may easily include cottage cheese in your morning bowl of oats. Oatmeal may be prepared in the microwave or on the stove, and thereafter, just whisk in the cottage cheese.
I used rolled oats, a banana, sea salt, and water to make my standard stovetop oatmeal recipe for this specific dish. Until the liquid has been absorbed and the texture is to your liking, cook over medium-high heat. Add the cottage cheese after taking the oats off the heat. Start with 1/4 cup and increase as desired. While it does make the oats more creamy, it also significantly alters the flavor. I adore it.
Tip: Don’t boil the oats with the cottage cheese first. The consistency becomes strange! After the oats have been cooked, it tastes much better when it is added.
What Type of Cottage Cheese to Use?
You can use any kind of cottage cheese that you like. Personally, I like to utilize hormone- and antibiotic-free organic dairy products. I suggest Organic Valley and Nancy’s if you’re seeking quality organic cottage cheese products. Additionally, I enjoy Friendship Diaries cottage cheese with little curds and no salt added (in the red container). I like that this variation of cottage cheese has a bit less salt than the usual brands because cottage cheese tends to be rather heavy in sodium. Sadly, this brand is not natural.
Simply transfer the oatmeal to a bowl and top with your preferred toppings once you’ve added the cottage cheese to it. Here is where you should consider incorporating those good fats. I added some healthy fats to this dish by drizzling it with peanut butter, flaxseed, sliced almonds, and coconut flakes.
If you try this cottage cheese oatmeal, be sure to let me know how it works out by leaving a comment and star rating below.
