Vanilla Peanut Butter Protein Bowl

August 7, 2015

Vanilla Peanut Butter Protein BowlSometimes you just need a big bowl of protein! šŸ™‚ This snack is super fast, filling, and full of protein.  I don’t know about you, but I really like snacks that you just dump everything in a bowl and stir.   And this one is just that.  I also like my yogurt with some texture in it, that’s why I added the oatmeal.  Not to mention that I am a huge oats fan anyway. šŸ™‚  After you try this one, you should go give my Crunchy Berry Almond Yogurt snack a try.  I think you will love that one just as much.

But anyway, back to protein.  Some days, it’s just hard to get all your protein in if you are following a meal plan or something like that.  With 42.5 g of protein, this can catch you up real quick.  I have read a lot of recipes with protein powder and most of them involve some kind of mug cake, or baking.  I have tried just about everything, but baking protein powder usually ends up with something resembling the texture of a nerf football.  Anyone else agree? I have found it much more enjoyable mixed with yogurt or peanut butter or something.  And that’s how I ended up with this:

So here you go.  Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until well incorporated and then eat it.  It’s really just that simple.  Sometimes if I need some more fat in my macros, I use 1 T real peanut butter instead of PB2 because I’m a HUGE peanut butter fan (the chunky kind) but PB2 is just as good in this case.  Let me know what you think!  You can try lots of flavor combos!  Mix some berries in there for a PB & J flavor if you want to live on the wild side. šŸ™‚
