How much protein do I need?


  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 1/4 cup vanilla whey protein powder*
  • Pinch of salt
  • Nutella, for serving


Strawberry Topping:

  • 1 pound fresh strawberries, halves
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water

    *We encourage you to try other proteins from milk in this recipe as well, simply substitute in place of the called-for protein. Please keep in mind that the nutritional analysis is based on the protein listed in the ingredient list.


Step 1

For strawberry topping, add halved and washed strawberries to a small pot with sugar and water. Place over medium low heat and cook until sugar dissolves into a thin syrup and strawberries soften, but don’t break down completely, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat.

Step 2

To cook oatmeal, heat water in a medium pot until simmering. Add a pinch of salt and steel cut oatmeal. Stir well and turn heat down to low. Simmer the oatmeal for 25-30 minutes until it absorbs the water and thickens.

Step 3

When oatmeal is cooked and tender, slowly whisk in vanilla whey protein powder. If you add the protein powder too soon or too fast, it will clump.

Step 4

Serve finished oatmeal topped with strawberry topper and drizzled with Nutella.
