Today’s recipe is a little different than most of the oatmeal recipes on my blog, because it uses steel cut oats. I am huge oatmeal fan. No lie, I eat them every single day. One of my favorite things about oats is the amount of recipes you can create using them. I am always whipping up something new like these protein steel cut oats, so make sure to subscribe to my email list so that you never miss when the next recipe drops. In the meantime, here are some of my top picks:

Best plant based protein for oatmeal:
If there is one thing I love with my morning oatmeal, it’s PlantFusion. I talk about PlantFusion all the time here. I just can’t help it, I’m obsessed! The biggest reason I love PlantFusion is because I trust what goes into their products. I find that a lot of companies (even ones claiming to be health foods companies) are very shady about the ingredients that go into their products. However PlantFusion is different. PlantFusion creates high quality protein powders and supplements made with transparency. I love this about them, because I know that whatever I order is made with my best interest. This leads me to my next point.
Most protein powders are built using a one size fits all method. PlantFusion is different. They have a variety of products and supplements that are designed to target specific needs. I have fallen in love with each of these products, and honestly only have goods things to say about all of them. I went with their classic Vanilla Complete Protein for these protein steel cut oats and it was delicious! As always my code “NATURALVEGAN” will get you 25% off your entire order at PlantFusion!
What are steel cut oats?
For the longest time I had no idea what the difference really was between all the different oats. I mean, there’s steel cut, quick, rolled, and groats. That is a lot of oats! Steel cut oats are essentially just less processed outs. Unlike quick or rolled oats, steel cut oats keep their natural shape and are just chopped up. You cannot microwave cook steel oats (you need to ditch that microwave anyways!), so you have to cook them on the stove. However they cook pretty quickly.
