This easy-to-make oatmeal tastes really decadent, but it’s full of nutritious ingredients plus plant protein!
Breakfast is definitely my favorite meal of the day. I typically prefer sweet breakfasts like oatmeal or protein pancakes, but I always throw in avocado toast with eggs or a veggie egg scramble a few days a week to get in more vegetables.
I’ve been on a cold oatmeal kick lately. Maybe this is weird, but I don’t cook my oats. I guess it’s sort of like overnight oats, but I don’t make them the night before.
I just throw them together in the morning and eat.
The recipe I’m sharing today is my cold oats method, but you could definitely cook your oats and eat them warm.
Lately, I’ve been adding a scoop of my favorite vanilla plant protein powder to my oatmeal. I feel like it keeps me full longer. Plus it adds an extra 14 grams of protein, so it’s great for a post-workout breakfast.
The plant protein powder I use is a nutrient-rich blend of clean, high-quality proteins including pea, chia, pumpkin, hemp and quinoa. There’s no added sugar or artificial ingredients or sweeteners. It’s also non-GMO, gluten-free, soy-free and vegan.

If you’re wondering if adding salt to your oatmeal is weird, don’t worry! Adding salt with dates gives it a salted caramel flavor that is amazing. Try it!
