Proats als proteinhaltige Alternative zu klassischem Porridge

Proats – Overnight Oats with a Protein Boost 

The latest trend amongst our fitness friends: Protein Oats a.k.a. Proats. With protein playing an important part of the diet for those who train regularly, more and more foods are being labelled as high protein or 'with added protein'. Even those who don't train every day (or even every week!) are taking on board the importance of protein to maintain a healthy, balanced diet. But not all proteins are created equal! Whilst including plenty of protein in your diet is certainly a good idea, it's important to ensure it comes from a variety of sources: meat, fish, eggs, dairy products, legumes and nuts. Proats is an excellent source for getting more protein in your diet. Proats is easy to prepare either the night before to be enjoyed as overnight oats for breakfast, or as traditional warm porridge. On this page we'll explore different ways to enjoy Proats.

PROATS preparation

Oats are a great source of vegetable protein, with 100g of oatmeal containing 13.5g protein. In addition, oat protein has a high nutritional value. But that alone does not make a regular oat breakfast like porridge, overnight oats or bircher muesli into proats. It still lacks the extra portion of protein. And that usually comes from 1-2 tablespoons of a protein powder of your choice. Our mymuesli Protein Porridge contains Whey protein, which gives it a whopping 30% protein - any sports fan would certainly be happy with this!

Recipe for Proats with greek yoghurt and Chia Seeds (Overnight Oats)

This power breakfast certainly sets you up for the day! Our Classic Porridge meets greek yoghurt, fresh fruits and chia seeds. Did you know that chia means 'strength'? Well it's no surprise considering the nutritional benefits of these power seeds. They contain a high content of omega-3 and polyunsaturated fatty acids, as well as magnesium, calcium and iron. In addition, they have a protein content of 21%, making chia seeds also a great source of protein. The fruits and nuts in this recipe provide valuable vitamins and minerals. The greek yoghurt adds an extra hit of protein, and a much creamier taste than the usual porridge.

Recipe:

Step 1: In a glass jar, soak 50g of oats (about 5 tablespoons of our Classic Porridge) and 1 tablespoon of chia seeds in 100ml of milk. Those who want to save calories can use water. Plant-based milks such as oat or almond are also suitable. Optional: add some cinnamon, vanilla or honey to enhance the flavour.

Step 2: Mix 2 tablespoons of greek yoghurt with 2 teaspoons of chia seeds and spread on top of the soaked oatmeal. Do not mix!

Step 3: Leave to set overnight in the fridge.

Step 4: In the morning, top it off with fresh fruit, dried fruit and nuts. We love bananas, apples, dates, apricots, figs, plums, cashews, almonds or walnuts.

plant-based Proats, using vegan Protein powder

Not everyone wants to get their protein from animal sources such as yoghurt or milk. And often the case is that most protein powders contain animal protein such as whey. However, this is changing and it is possible to find increasing numbers of plant-based alternatives. If you are vegan and still want to enjoy Proats or just want to eat more plant-based protein, then follow this recipe for a delicious alternative. When choosing a vegan protein powder, make sure your product is gluten, sugar and soy free. You should also check that there are no sneaky flavour enhancers or additives in your protein powder.


Recipe:

Step 1: In a saucepan dissolve 1-2 tablespoons of vegan protein powder in about 200ml of plant-based milk (such as soya, oat or almond) depending on your protein requirements. Then add 5 tablespoons of oats and 1 tablespoon of chia seeds.

Step 2: Bring to a boil and simmer for about 3-5 minutes at reduced heat. The oats will swell in the liquid and get a delicious creamy consistency. Remember to stir now and then, so that the porridge doesn't stick to the pan.

Step 3: In the meantime, slice up some fresh fruit, dried fruit and/or nuts.

Step 4: After simmering, remove from the heat and leave the porridge for another 2-3 minutes while stirring. Then serve in a bowl with your fruit and nut toppings.
