Raw Protein Oatmeal with Flaxseed

Posted by: Rhonda Price on Wednesday, January 30, 2013

If you follow our blog on a regular basis, you already know that Raw Protein is good for a lot more than just shakes or smoothies. Many of us at Garden of Life have been baking with it for months and adding it to foods so we can instantly boost the protein content! Recently we made oatmeal with Raw Protein and added flaxseeds for an even bigger nutritional punch! Remember to use slow cooking oats instead of the quick-cooking variety, as the slow ones are better for you. Here’s how it’s done!



¼ or ½ cup steel cut oats (we used Organic Arrowhead Mills)

1 ½ cups water

1 scoop of Raw Protein Vanilla (or any flavor you prefer)

1 tsp. flaxseeds

½ tsp. stevia extract or one packet of stevia to sweeten

Pinch of sea salt


Bring oats and water to a boil. Stir in Raw Protein. Reduce heat, cover, and cook for about 10 minutes or until thickened. Pour into a bowl, stir in stevia and sprinkle with flaxseeds. Enjoy!

Does Raw Protein contain soy?

Actually, the raw protein label states under other ingredients, "Contain (fermented) soy." So, the "technical" answer to the question about soy is yes, but this could be misleading unless you know more about what fermented soy actually is.

Fermented soy is a much different product and has much different properties than traditional soy protein powder.

Fermented soy has numerous benefits without any of the downsides of non-fermented soy. The inclusion of the fermented soy makes it so your body can absorb all of the nutrients in the protein powder in a more effective manner.

I was concerned about this since I was looking to stop my use of soy protein. But after a few minutes of research on the internet it became clear that the inclusion of fermented soy was a good thing and I'm glad to see that it is included in the raw protein.

So, if you are concerned about soy and see "fermented soy" listed, just know that it is not regular soy that we are all familiar with and that it is something to be desired as a positive.

Hi Kelly-Soy is not an actual ingredient in the RAW Protein. The Vitamin K was isolated from natto which is fermented soy however only the vitamin K was taken from soy. No other component of soy is in the product.

I thought I'd mention that flax seeds need to be coarsly ground for better digestion/absorption.

Well I found the amount, of protein powder to be overpowering and impacted the taste.I use this alot as i have elimated chicken from my diet 4 years ago. I never thought, of adding it to my oatmeal C/f and since i include, oatmeal as my dinner after a workout this is perfect.

Deficiency of regular water can lead to lack of fluids, a condition that happens when you don't have enough regular water in your body to bring on regular features....
