Peanut Butter Protein Oats

As you may know (if you have been reading any of my recent posts), I’ve been following less of a paleo lifestyle and more of a lifestyle that fits my own nutritional needs. And because of that, I’ve been eating more gluten grains AND beans. You can read about my bean protocol here and how it changed my life. And since I share 95% of my life on social media, meals like this peanut butter protein oats pop up on stories weekly and I always get a handful of people asking for the recipe. Obviously this is a paleo website, but it has evolved over the years into whatever I see fit and whatever is working for me at the moment. Take it or leave it. If this non-paleo recipe doesn’t work for you, you can simply not make it and move on to the thousands of other paleo recipes on my site instead! And if you’re wondering why I haven’t rebranded, you can read this post!

Now that that’s settled, let’s talk about oats. Because let’s face it, oats are way more fun than angry people online.

Probably 4 or 5 months ago, I started tracking my protein intake. I had hit a plateau in my muscle growth and I was feeling a little stuck. So I started paying more attention to how much protein I was eating each day, and the more I tracked, the more muscle growth I started to see! Science right there. I also started tracking my fiber since beans/fiber have been a huge part of my recovery from acne. And since I have beans at least 5x/day these days, I have to get creative with certain dishes…like adding beans to smoothies and/or oat bowls! This dish includes my favorite plant based protein powder, it’s blended with a flax milk that also includes pea protein, then I add cannellini beans to blend into a smooth mixture. I also top it with hemp hearts for extra protein, as well! This dish has around 36g of protein and 8g of fiber! If you don’t care about those numbers whatsoever, that’s cool too, at least you’ll just LOVE how delicious this breakfast is.

I’ve talked about Safe + Fair granola on my stories, but I’ve never talked about it in a blog post. Their granola and popcorn are out of this world good! The birthday cake granola is my favorite snack of all time. It’s sweet, it’s salty, and it has sprinkles. Tell me something that isn’t made better with sprinkles. Nothing. You got nothing. Whenever I get frozen yogurt, I swear I have more sprinkles than frozen yogurt, which is stupid since sprinkles really have no flavor. But what they do have is texture. And texture makes everything better. Well Safe + Fair also has birthday cake granola. It’s epic. I’m using Safe + Fair Full Stack Granola in this recipe because it has the perfect amount of maple syrup in it that pairs just right with the peanut butter flavor. It’s a lovely combination. Ok, I’m just going to shut up about the oats so you can go make this recipe and love it as much as I do. Don’t forget to get enough protein and fiber in! Or don’t. It’s your life.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Hey Juli!
    I’m soooo pumped to see this recipe post as I’ve just started the bean protocol two days ago after hemming and hawing and I’m definitely not going full boar (just finished an apple ☺️). I’m trying to incorporate more beans away from fat consumption while limiting but not excluding the prohibited foods such as sugar, fruit, caffeine and alcohol so that I can stick with this more sustainably. I really hope that this isn’t an all or no results type of protocol. That being said, from your understanding is this recipe bean protocol compliant? Peanut butter is my favourite thing and I’m really sad about not eating it as much.

  2. Do beans make you break out when you first start eating them? I don’t usually break out, but when I start eating beans, I get a lot of acne. I’ll start eating them for couple days, then have to stop, then start again in a couple weeks. Thanks!

  3. I have followed your blog for years. Your recipes are a go-to and are always a hit! My husband prefers to stick to paleo, I am vegetarian and love rice/beans/oats. Happy to see the variety and the options it gives us both:).

    1. i think so! i haven’t tried it that way and not sure if the protein would get funky after a few days, so you may just have to try it and see how it goes!

  4. This is amazingly filling! I couldn’t even finish the whole thing. Great non egg option for breakfast.

  5. I made this, but because I only had unflavored protein powder, I added ~1-1.5 tbsp of peanut butter to the liquid and beans before blending. So good! This recipe inspired me to try blending beans and water/DF milk to make non-PB oats with beans this morning. That also worked quite well!

  6. This was amazing, I subbed steamed cauliflower for the beans and turned out great! So dang good! Thanks for the protein powder recommendation and all of the amazing content you put out !

  7. LOVED this one! I bought PB protein powder just so I could try it. I am not a huge fan of oatmeal, so I kept it cold (cold oatmeal, overnight oats, whatever the catchy name for it is) and still loved it. I am going to try to blend the oats next time and try it as a smoothie too. Thanks for the awesome recipe!

  8. I love this so much! Have made these oats many times and now use this recipe as a template to switch up flavors. Thanks for the hot tip on the beans!

  9. This is delicious! I didn’t have cannellini beans so I used garbanzo beans, also used a different granola since I haven’t received the full stack granola yet. I am really loving the protein powder, I drink the Four Sigmatic Coffee so I just added that powder to my last order and it is really good! Thank you for the suggestion, definitely looking for new recipes to up my daily protein.
