What?! Crazy. I know! We had them both for dinner last night. Testing out what skills they had in the delicious department. Jeremy and I split them and decided they were both really good, so it will depend on what you need out of breakfast. If you’re going for post workout fuel then definitely go for the first one.

I have to talk a little bit about the star of that oatmeal, PlantFusion’s Chocolate Protein powder. I’ve bought maybe 5 or 6 protein powders in the last 10 years – I know, not a lot. When I saw this at Fred Meyer’s I was really surprised as I began to read the label. It went something like this, a scan of the protein content which comes in at 21 grams. I then went to scan the ingredients and was pleasantly surprised. This protein powder is simple compared to many, it consists of the following:

  • PlantFusion Amino Acid Infused Protein Blend:
    • Pea Protein Isolate
    • Organic Sprouted Amaranth Powder
    • Organic Sprouted Quinoa Powder
  • Other Ingrdients:
    • Fructose
    • Cocoa
    • Natural Chocolate Flavor
    • Stevia
    • Glycine (sweetner/taste enhancer)
    • Silica (flow agent/anti-caking)

The other selling points listed on the bottle besides the obvious lack of a million unable to pronounce ingredients is that it’s dairy free, soy free, vegan, hypoallergenic, gluten free, low glycemic, Non-GMO, and easily digestible. What more could you ask for in a protein powder? Now that I used the last scoop of my chocolate – I’m thinking I should try one of the Berry or Vanilla flavors next. My favorite way to have it as a shake, is simple, with just frozen banana, almond milk, and a little peanut butter.

This is a great post work out breakfast that is ooey gooey chocolaty and rich in fiber and protein as well as vital minerals and nutrients. Potassium: 545mg - Vitamin A: 11% - Vitamin B6: 23% - Vitamin C: 12% - Vitamin D: 25% - Vitamin E: 51% - Calcium: 21%

I also wanted an option to grab when a standard chocolate oatmeal was required. Regular baking cocoa would be fine as a substitute, but Navitas Naturals has a stellar rich tasting chocolate powder. I use it all the time in raw desserts.

If you happen to make this for dinner too, I don’t think anyone will complain. 😉

We’re at the beginning of a week of oatmeal recipes. I invite you to make one of them and share your findings at the end of the week on Friday. Yesterday was Carrot Cake Oatmeal. Stay tuned for more this week.

Have you ever added chocolate or protein powder to oatmeal before? This was a first time for me and soon to be a second and third. hehe
