This month we're very excited to share a delicious recipe created by Spencer Miller (@macro_chef) that includes our very own PBH donuts! Spencer made a delicious bowl of pumpkin protein oatmeal that pairs amazingly with our keto pumpkin chocolate chip donuts. Make sure to check out his blog here for a ton of easy & delicious recipes. Check out Spencer's recipe below!
I posted this one on my Instagram late last week, and it seemed to be a hit. You guys all said you wanted the recipe, so I am finally getting around to getting it posted. It is the perfect combination of creamy pumpkin protein oats topped with chocolate chips and a pumpkin chocolate chip protein donut, because who doesn’t want a donut on their oatmeal?
I was pretty busy all weekend in Richmond, Virginia with the cycling team I am going to be riding for next year. Lots of riding, laughs, and of course good eats! That is why I’m a little delayed in getting this one posted.
I’m not going to lie, when I made this last week, I actually ate it for dinner. Breakfast for dinner > dinner for breakfast! I had a pretty hard workout the next morning, so I wanted to make sure to fuel up. It is perfect because it has the complex carbs for fuel and still tastes like you are eating dessert.
If you saw the video on Instagram, you probably saw how creamy and thick the oats are. I make them super thick by adding a couple egg whites, whisking them in and microwaving. Basically, I cook the oats according to the package directions. Then, I whisk in 2-3 egg whites, and microwave for another 45-60 seconds. The egg whites cook and fluff up the oatmeal.
I topped the oats with chocolate chips (I used sugar free ones from ChocZero), then a big dollop of Nuts-N-More Spiced Pumpkin Pie protein peanut butter, and finally a keto pumpkin chocolate chip donut from PBH Foods.

Pumpkin Protein Oats
1 cup quick oats (or old fashioned)
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
3 egg whites
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder*
1 scoop vanilla casein protein powder*
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Salt to taste
2 tbsp. Nuts-N-More Pumpkin Pie protein peanut butter
1 tbsp. sugar free dark chocolate chips
*For the protein powders, I used both whey and casein because I like the combination, and casein helps make the oats a thicker texture. Another great protein powder substitute would be to just use two scoops of a protein powder blend.
Cook oats according to package directions. Add pumpkin puree and egg whites. Whip into oatmeal until thoroughly mixed.
Microwave again for another 30 seconds. Mix, and then again for 30 seconds. Adding the egg whites and cooking like this makes the oatmeal thick and fluffy.
Add protein powder, cinnamon and salt. Mix again until combined. Divide into two servings. Top with peanut butter, chocolate chips and donut if desired! Enjoy!
