Cinnamon Bun Baked Oats 5 0 5 1

It’s no secret that I love cinnamon flavoured things, so when USN kindly sent me a tub of their new Lean-8 protein powder in vanilla cinnamon bun flavour I was rather excited. I have already created a High Protein Cinnamon Roll recipe, so I decided to cinammonise (that’s the technical term) my baked oats recipe.

If you’ve never tried baked oats then you are seriously missing out! They are super simple to make, but are insanely delicious. Especially when the weather is wet, cold and miserable as they are like a warm cuddle (a high protein one) in a bowl. Wave goodbye to your usual protein shakes from a shaker, and embrace the new way to get your protein in!

45g (two scoops) USN vanilla cinnamon bun Lean-8 (you can sub this for vanilla protein powder and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon)

2There is nothing more to this recipe than mixing everything together and pouring it into a greased baking dish.

3Then pop it in the oven and bake for 20 minutes – told you it was easy!

4It’s best served hot, but is still delicious left to cool and eaten as more of a cake. I’ve done this a few times when I’ve needed to take my breakfast on the go.

I love this recipe! I used to eat oatmeal everyday for breakfast but ever since I started Intermittent Fasting my first meal is in the afternoon post workout so it just doesn’t make sense to eat it anymore. Luckily I found this recipe and now I can eat oatmeal for “breakfast” again AND it has more than enough protein to replace my usual post workout protein shake. Not to mention it tastes quite a bit better…
