Pour both packets of oats into a pan, cover with milk and bring to the boil, stirring regularly. Or alternatively, pop in the microwave for an even speedier start!
Once cooked, distribute evenly between the two bowls.
Top each bowl with two dollops of yoghurt, cherries, pistachios and dark chocolate.
Why we love this combo?
For us, the hunt is always on for the perfect breakfast before an early workout! We’re often dashing from place to place leaving little time to spend slaving away over meals, especially breakfast. More importantly, we want something that contains all the right ingredients to keep our bodies happy and ready to take on the challenges we present. Especially important with this in mind is protein, which aids muscle growth and repair keeping us going from strength to strength! The Quaker Protein Oats sachet are the perfect high protein breaky for the busy, and can be whipped up in only two and a half minutes. The toppings we have chosen are easy to get from any local supermarket, and the creamy texture is simply an added bonus!
The nitty gritty’s
Each pack of Protein Oats contains 20g of carbs, and 8.1g of protein and amounts to 143 calories (If we have had a big session or long run we tend to double up on sachets). The high carb content helps keep us perky for the morning ahead and ready to tackle whatever the day throws at us. The fat content is low which is what keeps the calorie count relatively low and part of the reason we chose to add ‘high fat’ toppings, such as Greek yoghurt and pistachios to our dish. These delicious toppings also mean we are less likely to snack ahead of lunch. The protein boost makes it the perfect post-workout dish, as it also aids muscle growth and repair after a tough training session.
