My Latest Breakfast Kick...

Ok, ok...I'm not really eating these for breakfast!

However, I have been making a delicious oatmeal recipe lately that tastes almost exactly like these!  It's sooooo good! :)  My sister-in-law gave me this recipe last year, and she calls it "Power Oatmeal."  She said she thinks she got it from "The Zone" diet or something similar.  You may have run across it before....but, I love it!  It has seriously filled me up in the mornings, and it tastes quite a bit like a no-bake cookie!  Extra protein can help you build muscle.......which in turn can help you burn more fat! :)

1 package plain instant oatmeal
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
1-2 packets of splenda (optional)

Cook oatmeal according to package directions.  Add protein powder, peanut butter & splenda and mix well.  Enjoy!
