Don't be scared!  This oatmeal is just like any other oatmeal--it's warm, it's sweet, it's healthy!

It's just, you know...  green.

Very different from my Chocolate Fudge Brownie Oatmeal.  One can never get sick of chocolate but it's always good to change things up a bit, so I decided to use matcha instead of cocoa and vanilla protein powder instead of chocolate protein powder.  The result?  Delicious, bright and sweet almond matcha oatmeal!

Sweet Matcha Almond Oatmeal:  [low fat, high fiber/protein, GF, vegan]
(serves one)
  Step 1:
     1/2 cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats (GF if you like)
     1 tbs Sweet Matcha
     2 tbs Granulated Erythritol (or dry sweetener of choice)
     1/2 cup Water
  Step 2:
     2-3 tbs Water
     15-19 drops Almond Extract (to taste, I like 19)
     10-13 drops Stevia Extract (I used 13, as I have a maaajor sweet tooth)
     1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder

1.  Add the Step 1 ingredients into a microwave safe bowl and stir (it should look like Shrek's choice breakfast!).  Microwave for 2 minutes (I stopped it around 1.2 minutes to stir and prevent boiling over).
2.  In a cup, whisk together the Step 2 ingredients.  Pour over cooked oatmeal.  Sprinkle some almonds over top and enjoy!

Don't be scared and just enjoy.  Close your eyes if you have to  ;)

Perfect for St. Patty's Day or any day for a kid, just tell them Shrek made it for them!


  1. that is so strange looking! but awesome at the same time :-)

  2. Matcha in oatmeal, what a great idea! It looks delicious, I won't have to close my eyes.. nono!
