Five-Hour-Fullness Oats

Five-Hour-Fullness Oats are the cure for insatiable appetites! Feel full and satisfied (note the difference,) until lunch without any morning munchies.

Sorry, the pictures are nill for this post. Trust me… it’s the best way to eat oatmeal I’ve ever slipped into my mouth! What incentive do I have to lie to y’all? This breakfast offers 6 grams of fiber, and 15 grams of complete, bioavailable protein! No more tummy grumbles at 10 AM:)

Five-Hour-Fullness Oats (Recipe)

  • 1/4 cup oats, quick or old-fashioned
  • 1/4 cup TVP (textured vegetable protein)*
  • 1 1/4-1/2 cups water or dairy-free milk
  • Optional for sweetness and additional nutrition: 1/2-1 scoop vegan protein powder, any flavor**
  1. Stir oats and TVP in a large glass measuring cup, Pyrex bowl, or MEGA-sized mug.
  2. For thicker oatmeal, add 1.25 cups of water. For a soupier texture, shoot for 1.5 cups.
  3. Throw it into the microwave for 4 minutes. You will have to watch it closely because that sucker’s gonna boil over. To prevent this, hit the pause button, letting the angry oats settle down. Then, heat it again in 20-second increments until you’ve just passed 240 seconds (that’s 4 minutes, dummy.)
  4. Let it cool on the counter for a few minutes, then refrigerate for at least 5 hours. Or overnight. Or, if you’re a college kid, 5 hours IS overnight.
  5. Ready to eat? Cool. Re-pop it in that magic little melty electro-zing-zang-bang box (microwave) for 3 mins. Top!

*Unfortunately, there is no soy-free substitute for the TVP. You can substitute oats, but the whole point is adding 3x more protein. That’s what makes these five-hour-fullness oats. 

**I like Vega Protein & Greens or Orgain Plant. Any brand should work, though!

♦= Use Chocolate Protein Powder, ♣= Use Vanilla or any other

♣Pumpkin Prune Pie: Add 1/4 cup pumpkin puree, 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, and 1/4 cup diced prunes

♦Buttercup Mountain: Add 1 tablespoon peanut flour + cocoa powder, 1/2 tablespoon peanut butter, and 1/2 oz. dark chocolate

♣2-in-1 Muffin: Stir lemon zest to taste, 1 tablespoon poppyseeds, cardamom, and 1/2 cup blueberries into the thickened oats. This is a combo of a lemon poppyseed muffin and a blueberry muffin;)

♣The Thanksgiving: 1/4 cup fresh or dried cranberries, 2 tablespoons pecans, a DASH of sage, thyme, and cinnamon.

♣Carrot Cake Pool: 1/2 cup shredded carrots, 1/4 cup chopped pineapple, 1 tablespoon raisins, pumpkin pie spice, and 2 tablespoons of walnuts.

♣Maple “Bacon:” Use the TVP bacon bits from this recipe, then sprinkle them on top of the cooled oats. Add maple extract and maple syrup, to taste. A pat of vegan butter or coconut manna takes this over the top, but that fat source doesn’t align with everyone’s health goals.

♦New York Peppermint Patty: Creamy as an NY cheesecake! Add 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract, 1 tablespoon DARK cocoa powder, 1 tablespoon cashew butter, and 1/2 oz. dark chocolate.

♦Black Forest Oats: 1/2 cup chopped cherries, 2 tablespoons walnuts, 1/2 oz. (15g) dark chocolate
