8 Protein Porridge Recipes That Are Delicious & Nutritious

Looking for a breakfast that packs a punch? Protein porridge recipes offer a deliciously easy way to get in a ton of nutritious foods all in one bowl. Oats are a great staple in any athlete’s diet. As a carbohydrate with a low glycaemic index, they provide slow-release energy, and are full of health-boosting fibre.

They also contain a decent amount of protein, which will often leave you feeling fuller for longer. Pack in your protein porridge and you’ll easily be able to dodge the breakroom biscuit tin and keep going until lunch time!

It’s all too easy to get bogged down with the same breakfast every day, so switching up your oats is a simple way to make the mundane fun and tasty again. As oats are pretty plain, you can add a whole variety of milks, yoghurts, fruits, powders and so much more to make a different bowl every single morning.

Porridge can also be an easy fix to a busy lifestyle. With protein porridge, you can often make it the night before, and grab it for an on-the-go breakfast whether it’s after the gym, or on the train to work. You can also whack some of these healthy porridge recipes into the microwave for a warm and cosy bowl of protein porridge that’ll set you right on the coldest and darkest of mornings.

Worried you’ll get bored of the same old combinations? Firstly, we’ve got nine delicious recipes right here for you to dig into. Next, it’s never been easier to get your hands on the tastiest toppings…

We’ve got several different flavours of Sugar-Free Syrup, 20 different bowls to make with FlavDrops, as well as more Impact Whey Protein flavours than you have room in your cupboards for. You can also get dunking into buckets of nut butters for the ultimate creamy protein porridge recipe.
