Add Muscle With This High-Protein Oatmeal Recipe

"Ben! You better eat your oatmeal!"

To this day I can still hear in the back of my head my mom saying this to me. Throughout my wrestling career, she always made sure I ate a protein breakfast, and it had to be something nutritious that would stick to my stomach.

Man am I glad she did!

Looking back on it, this breakfast right here is a huge reason why I was able to train so intensely and so often! I used this breakfast all the way through my collegiate career, and it's still my go-to breakfast whenever I have a crazy workout planned for the day.

Ladies and gents, welcome to a fitness secret breakfast called "proats."

I love Proats, and you will too.

It's unbelievably easy to make and it's loaded with protein, carbs and fats.

As always, I went to my go-to guy Kevin Curry at to give you an easy way to prepare this. (I twist it up a bit, because I'm not a fan of almond milk.) If you're not on his site yet, you need to get on! He provides some great content.


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 banana, mashed with a fork
  • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk (I used 2% regular)
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp turmeric (optional)
  • 10 raspberries
  • 24 almonds


  • Make the oatmeal
  • Mash the banana with a fork
  • Mix the banana and oatmeal to make it nice and creamy
  • Add scoop of protein powder ( I use vanilla IsoPure Zero Carb Protein)
  • Add 2 tbsp of milk
  • Add cinnamon
  • Add tumeric (great inflammatory)
  • Add 24 almonds


Inside that bowl is 63 g Protein, 50 g Carbs, 12 g Fiber and 19 g of Healthy Fats!
