Whey Better Peanut Butter and Jelly Oatmeal Servings: 4
You'll need
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 ½ cups raspberries

  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 cup steel-cut oatmeal
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • ½ cup unflavored or vanilla whey protein powder

  • ¼ cup natural peanut butter or almond butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
1. In a bowl, mix together chia seeds and 1 cup water. Let sit for about 45 minutes to form a gel, stirring occasionally to prevent clumping. Pulse together chia gel with raspberries and honey in a blender or food processor. Chill overnight.
2. Place oats, a pinch of salt and 3 cups water in a medium sized saucepan. Bring to mild boil, immediately turn off heat, cover and let oats soak overnight.
3. In the morning, stir milk into the oats and heat over medium-low heat for 5 minutes, stirring in additional milk if too dry. Stir in 1 cup of the raspberry chia jam along with the banana, whey protein, nut butter and cinnamon; warm through.
