A 1 cup serving of 2% milk is naturally high in protein – 8g per cup – so, swap out your usual cooking water, and use milk instead! Not only does this add a protein boost, but it makes it SO creamy and smooth.
Adding nuts and seeds are an awesome, plant-based way to increase both the protein of your morning oats, and make them SO delicious. I mean, who doesn’t love creamy swirls of nut butter or crunchy bursts of nuts and seeds!
Piggy-backing off the savory idea, I love to add a little bit of low-fat cheese on top of my egg (Parmesan is my go-to!) A 1 oz serving of reduced-fat cheese averages about 7g of protein!
Add cheese – sweet OR savory!
1 oz of flax seed packs 6.5g of protein and 1 oz of chia seed has about 4.5 g of protein. Both are also VERY high in fiber, which is going to make that morning bowl of oats last you BEYOND lunch!
