5-Min Cinnamon Oats

Steel-cut oats and cinnamon

It does not get better and faster than that. Nothing works better and faster than quick rolled oats. Especially when you are in a rush to the office or have basically nothing in the fridge and we already know it: hunger is the enemy no 1 when it comes to eating healthy and controlling portion sizes. So here it is my 5 min morning hero meal. You can make literally unlimited flavour and consistency combinations of this quick and satisfying meal. It works great for breakfast or a post-workout energy replenishment.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup of rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup of plain yogurt
  • A pinch of cinnamon
  • 6-8 raisins
  • A scoop of vanilla protein (optional)

Prep Instructions

In a bowl or directly in a food container mix all ingredients, wait a minute or two and enjoy. If you prefer your oats in softer consistency then best to let it sit for some time. Over what I tend to do is prepare 2 portions in evening the day before and let it sit in the fridge overnight. This way you get them soft and creamy plus you have more time to sleep in the morning.

As always I encourage you to get organized and prep ahead. The next morning simply grab it out of the fridge before heading to the office. You can fortify this treat with a extra portion of protein by simply adding a spoon of whey protein. I personally always do that. I just add a scoop of vanilla flavor protein and mix it well just before eating it.

Nutrition Facts & Tips

Good news on the health front is that oats are actually great for lowering one’s so-called bad cholesterol. It is because oatmeal contains soluble fiber. Soluble fiber can reduce the absorption of cholesterol into your bloodstream. On average 5 to 10 grams or more of soluble fiber a day decreases your total and LDL cholesterol.

Eating 1 1/2 cups of cooked or raw oatmeal provides at least 6 grams of fiber. Adding fruit, such as bananas, you’ll add about 4 more grams of fiber.

Soluble fiber is also found in such foods as kidney beans, apples, pears, barley and prunes.
