I haven’t had any luck finding an oatmeal recipe that I’ve really really loved, until today. I still had quite a bit of pure pumpkin to use up and I was craving chocolate for breakfast so this baked brekkie was my end result. I really liked topping this with Greek yogurt for extra protein. <3 I love the combination of pumpkin and chocolate in this thick, super filling, protein rich, breakfast. <3
2 cups Old Fashioned Oats
1 cup Pure Pumpkin Puree
1 cup Almond Milk
¼ cup Cocoa Powder
⅓ cup Egg Whites
¼ cup Whey Protein Powder – (THM Pristine Whey Protein Powder or Piping Rock Whey Protein Powder Isolate)
2 Tbsp Sweet Blend (or 2/3 cup Erythritol or Xylitol, or 4 Tbsp of Gentle Sweet) **Buy here
2 Doonks Stevia (a doonk is 1/32 tsp) **Buy Here
1 tsp Vanilla
¼ tsp Salt
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix by hand (really well to make sure you don’t get hard clumps of baked protein powder yuck!)
Spray a 8 inch round baking dish (or a 8×8 square pan) with a small amount of coconut oil. Bake for 30 minutes at 350.
Let cool for 5 minutes and top with plain fat free Greek yogurt with a touch of vanilla extract, sweetened with Stevia.

This sounds great and something I’ve been looking for. What part does the protein powder play in this recipe? Is it more for texture, added protein or both? Any sub suggestions for it?
Addition of protein, you could try egg whites or collagen in it’s place
To clarify, there is no baking powder in this recipe correct?
You are right, not a mistake or missing, just not in it.
Looks yummy. Can’t wait to try it. Thank you.
