Fitness Oatmeal Protein Bun

Fitness Oatmeal Protein Bun

I love such easy and healthy recipes the most. And I love them even more if they also have great nutritional values. And that is the case of this recipe, where the oats and protein powder are starring. This fitness oatmeal protein bun doesn't contain any added sugar or fat and is naturally gluten-free.

To prepare the oatmeal bun with protein powder you only need 1 bowl, baking form, a few ingredients and less than 5 minutes of time. It cannot get any easier than that. You can use protein powder of any flavor (either coconut, vanilla, cocoa or white chocolate). You can enjoy this bun or cake as a healthy breakfast or pack it with you to work or school. You can also add pieces of fruit into the dough (personally I love fresh or preserved sour cherries), shredded coconut or dried cranberries - to taste. The finished bun tastes amazing alone, but you can also supplement it with peanut or almond butter (I recommend this one) .

One serving of this healthy fitness bun contains up to 18 grams of protein, while still carries low calories and fat content. That's why it is perfect as pre- or after-wokout food to supplement proteins and complex carbohydrates.

Ingredients

  • 3 egg whites
  • 20g (0.7oz) protein powder (I recommend this one)
  • 1 cup oats (I recommend these)
