Health Benefits

Here are some of the benefits of eating these protein-packed recipes:

  • High in protein: Protein is essential for building and repairing muscle tissue, and it also helps to keep you feeling full and satisfied. Proats are a great way to get a healthy dose of protein in the morning.
  • Rich in fiber: Fiber helps to keep your digestive system healthy and can also help to lower cholesterol levels. Oats are a good source of fiber, and proats can be made even more fiber-rich by adding toppings like chia seeds, ground flaxseed, or nuts.
  • Complex carbohydrates: Proats are a good source of complex carbohydrates, making them a great breakfast choice for people who are active or who need to focus at work or school.

Tips for Making Proats

  • Rolled oats are the best choice because they have a chewier texture.
  • A ready-to-drink protein shake is a quick and easy way to make proats. You skip the protein powder and milk.
  • Use any type of milk you like. Cow’s milk, almond milk, soy milk, and oat milk are all good options.
  • Get creative with your toppings! Suggested toppers include fresh fruit, berries, nuts, seeds, yogurt, granola, and spices.
