Snow Day Cinnamon Chip, Protein Oatmeal

Snowmageddon 2015 is here!!! And it’s…. kind of weak in NYC… Audrey sums this one up pretty well:

Audrey is not impressed by Snowmageddon

She is not impressed. The news is on a constant loop of saying “well, it snowed a bit less than predicted in the city.” They are replacing Maury with this! (yes, I love trashy tv…) Oh well, I did get the day off from work today so I really cannot complain too much!

To help everyone stay warm, I’d thought I would share my super delicious Cinnamon Chip, Protein Oatmeal recipe!

Cinnamon Chip, Protein Oatmeal

What you need:

  • 1/2 cup instant oats
  • 1/2 serving protein powder (I used Biochem 100% Whey)
  • 1/4 cup 1% milk
  • 1/4 – 3/4 cup water (depends on your texture preference for oatmeal)
  • 1 Tbsp Cinnamon Chips (sold next to chocolate chips. If you haven’t had these before, you are welcome! Or I’m sorry for starting your new addiction…)

What you do:

  • Combine your oats, protein powder, milk, and water in a bowl.
  • Microwave it all. I did for 1 minute. Time depends on the type of oats you are using.
  • Top with your new addiction- cinnamon chips.
  • Enjoy!!!
