Chia Protein Oat Bran

Hello my almond butter loving friends. If you're new to HEAB, you may like to subscribe to my RSS feed or receive my posts via email. Thanks for reading!

Cook 1/2 cup oat bran with 1 cup of water on stove-top for 1-2 minutes:

Pot O' Goodness

Pot O’ Goodness

Stir in 2 TBSP of chia seeds, 1 scoop (30 grams) of your favorite protein powder (I prefer Sun Warrior rice protein powder), and 1 cup hot water.

Sexy Hot Oats :)

Eat right away, or if you prefer thicker oats like me, allow the chia seeds to go to work for 15-30 minutes.  You can reheat if you want, but I never do.

Look how thick it got!

Look how thick!

One of my favorite breakfasts. Enjoy!

Hi Heather..

I was thinking – yes I think of this stuff on my own time that is how crazy I am :) – and the calorie count did not add up for me. Correct me if I am wrong..

1/2 c oat bran 240 calorie (I normally use 1/3 or 1/4)
2 tbsp chia seeds – not sure but I would think around 80-90??
1 scoop J R protein pwder 110 calorie
1tbsp almond butter 100 alorie..

Regardless of the chia.. it comes to 540 ?? No?
Thanks so much!

Heab, I finally made this today. I’ve been meaning to buy chia seeds and always forgot. It came out delicious! I too love my oats so thick you have to basically chew them. I left out the protein and added a banana and a splash of hemp milk, and cinnamon. Soo good! I’m about to go blend my groats that were soaking overnight for oatgurt… your contagious! love it :)

Felicia, Arent’ chia seeds amazing? Love them, and I really hope your oatgurt turns out okay. Please keep me posted. If you get it right, it’s delicious, and if you don’t…well, we won’t even think about that. :) Love, Heather

1/2 cup oat bran is only 150 calories (: a cup of oat bran is closer to 300

SO- I combined two of your recipe ideas and came up with this:
Pumpkin Chia Protein Oatmeal!!! (Pumpkin pancakes + chia protein oatmeal)

I cooked oats in milk and water
When done, I added chia seeds, vanilla protein powder, canned pumpkin! ( a lot of it), touch of vanilla and a touch of cinnamon. It was Amazing!

Thank you for all of your great recipes!

Sounds delicious…especially with “lot of” canned pumpkin. I’m all out myself, but sending CD to the store today for more…and he better come back with Libby’s! Thanks for reading my blog, and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. :)
