High protein oatmeal recipe without protein powder

Ingredients:
▪️ 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
▪️ 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any milk of your choice)
▪️ 1/2 ripe banana, mashed
▪️ 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
▪️ 1 tablespoon chia seeds
▪️ 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
▪️ 1/4 cup Greek yogurt (plain or flavored)
▪️ 1/4 cup chopped nuts (such as almonds, walnuts, or pecans)
▪️ 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup (optional, for sweetness)
▪️ Fresh fruit for topping (such as berries, sliced banana, or apple)

Instructions:
▪️ In a saucepan, combine the rolled oats, almond milk, mashed banana, cinnamon, chia seeds, and ground flaxseed.
Bring the mixture to a gentle boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
▪️ Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5-7 minutes, or until the oatmeal thickens to your desired consistency.
▪️ Add Protein: Remove the saucepan from heat and stir in the Greek yogurt. This adds a creamy texture and boosts the protein content of your oatmeal.
▪️ Sweeten (Optional): If desired, add honey or maple syrup for sweetness. Adjust the amount to suit your taste preferences.
▪️Top and Serve: Transfer the oatmeal to a bowl and top with chopped nuts and your choice of fresh fruit.
▪️ Feel free to customize with additional toppings such as shredded coconut, cocoa nibs, or a sprinkle of cinnamon.
