3 ways to use oats

Posted 01 Feb 2022

MAKE PORRIDGE: In a saucepan add ½ cup of oats along with a sprinkling of spice such as cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg. Toast the oats and spices for 2-3mins over medium heat before adding a cup of milk or milk alternative. You may also want to add some vanilla extract or a couple of drops of zero-calorie flavour drops too. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat until you reach desired consistency. Remove from the heat and stir through a serving of protein powder. Top with a combination of things like fresh or frozen berries, banana, greek yoghurt nuts or nut butter.   

ADD TO SMOOTHIES: Adding oats to a smoothie is a great way to increase calories and fibre. Blending them will increase digestibility meaning the carbohydrate will hit your bloodstream a little faster. Try this smoothie 90 mins pre-training. 1 frozen banana, 1/4 cup of oats, a teaspoon of peanut butter, chocolate protein powder, a double shot of espresso and some ice-cold coconut milk. Blitz everything for 30 seconds. Enjoy.

AS A BASE FOR PANCAKES: In a high powered blender, throw in 1 banana, ¼ cup of oats, a good pinch of cinnamon, and 2-3 eggs. Blitz for 30 seconds until you have a batter mixture. To make it thicker add more oats, to make it looser add a little milk or liquid egg whites. In a nonstick pan, heat some olive oil over medium heat. Gently pour the mixture into the pan, frying for 2-3 mins on each side. Stack them up and serve with 0% fat Skyr style yoghurt, fresh or frozen berries, walnuts and maple syrup.
