Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup Rolled old fashioned oatmeal (GF if needed)
  • 2 Tbsp Truvia or sweetener of choice to taste + more to sweeten the cream cheese
  • 1 Cup water
  • 1/4 tsp + 1/8 tsp Vanilla extract divided
  • 2 Tbsp Vanilla Whey protein powder
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut sugar
  • 4-5 tsp Water depending how thick your protein is
  • 1 Tbsp Reduced-fat Cream cheese softened (I use the Philadelphia 2x Protein with Greek yogurt)

Instructions

  • In a small pot, combine the oatmeal and Truvia.
  • Add in the water and 1/4 tsp of the vanilla extract and bring to boil over medium/high heat.
  • Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium/low and simmer until the oats are thick, stirring frequently. (About 5 minutes)
  • Take the oatmeal off the heat and let it cool for 5 minutes.
  • While the oatmeal cool, stir together the protein powder, cinnamon and coconut sugar in a small bowl. Add in the water, 1 tsp at a time and stir to create a thick, but spreadable, paste....like what you would spread in a cinnamon bun. Set aside,
  • In a separate small bowl, stir together the softened cream cheese, and remaining 1/8 tsp of vanilla extract. Sweeten to taste.
  • Add the cinnamon mixture and the cream cheese into the oatmeal and swirl around.
  • DEVOUR.

Notes

*Brown sugar can be subbed if you do not coconut sugar. However, some people find brown sugar slightly sweeter than coconut sugar, so you may want to use a little bit less to suit your taste. :)
