This might sound a little weird, but stirring an egg white into your oatmeal while it’s cooking makes them super fluffy and voluminous! You can’t taste the egg white but it’s a great pure protein source to start your day!
I am a HUGE lover of cottage cheese and the curds melt into hot oatmeal, making them extra thick and creamy and I love the natural saltiness that the cottage cheese adds.
I love making protein oats and protein powder is a SUPER easy thing to stir into your oats AFTER they are done cooking! Plus, you have so many different flavors of protein powder, so you can get a good variety of oats!

You can toss some dry chickpeas in olive oil and bake them until nice and crispy and snack on them instead of chips! They’re packed with plant protein and fiber to keep you full and they’re so tasty!
