Walnut Brownie Batter Oatmeal

Walnut Brownie Batter Oatmeal

One of my favorite ways to have oatmeal is to turn it into a healthy treat that tastes more like dessert.  That's how I came up with this recipe that's packed with protein and chocolatey goodness.


1/3 Cup or 1 packet of Plain Instant Oatmeal
1 Tbsp. Fit Frappe Mocha Protein Powder
1 Tbsp. 60% Cacao Chocolate Chips
5 Candied Walnuts, chopped (or Pecans)
1/4 Cup Boiling Water

Mix the dry ingredients in a small bowl.  Then add the boiling water to the desired consistency, stir, and let it sit for 1 minute. The boiling water will melt the chocolate chips.  If you want it a little sweeter, then add 1 tsp. of brown sugar (adds 12 calories, 3g sugar).  Top with the walnuts.

Pair the Walnut Brownie Batter Oatmeal with a 60-Calorie Fit Frappe Mocha for a protein-packed breakfast (total protein 19g).

8 oz. Brewed Coffee, cold 

I use leftover coffee.  However, you may chill fresh brewed coffee over ice.  If coffee isn't handy you can always substitute 8 ounces of water.

I mix the ingredients using my Magic Bullet so that I don't get any grainy lumps from the protein powder.  The coffee has to be cold or it will explode when you blend it in the blender.  Pour the concoction in a microwave safe coffee cup, and heat it up in the microwave for 1-2 minutes.  It's also great served cold over ice. Enjoy!
