I’ve published so many protein oatmeal recipes recently I’m running low on things to say about the infamous proats. So, I’ll just cut to the chase. This high protein Snickers oatmeal is perfect for the chocolate peanut butter lover looking for a low calorie breakfast.
With 246 calories and only 22 grams of carbs per serving, you’ll get a dose of sweet in your morning bowl of oats without blowing your daily allotment of carbs out of the water.
How to Make Snickers Oatmeal
This recipe is in line with most of my proats recipes in the sense you’ll just need to cook quick oats and a bit of milk before stirring in all the fixins.
I’ve included notes on ingredient modifications in the recipe card below. The only thing I’ll cover here is the protein.
For this Snickers oatmeal recipe, I used Dymatize 100% Whey. Dymatize and PEScience Select are my go-to protein powders for nearly every recipe.That said, you’re more than welcome to use any protein powder you’d like. Just keep an eye on the size of your scoop versus Dymatize (17 grams in 1/2 scoop).

High Protein Snickers Oatmeal
Chocolate peanut butter proats topped with salted peanuts and sugar free caramel syrup.
- 1/4 C (20g) Quick Oats
- 1/4-3/8 C (60-90mL) Unsweetened Almond Milk, to desired consistency
- 1/2 scoop (17g) Protein Powder, vanilla
- 2 Tbsp (12g) PB2 or Powdered Peanut Butter
- 1-2 tsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- 1 Tbsp (7g) Salted Peanuts
- 1 Tbsp (15mL) Walden Farms Caramel Syrup, or your choice of sugar free caramel sauce
- Add the quick oats and milk to a bowl. Use the lower end of the milk measurement for thick oats and the higher end for runnier oats. (You can always add a bit more milk if the oats are too thick after cooking and mixing.)
- Microwave for 75 seconds.
- Add the cocoa powder, powdered peanut butter, and protein powder to the bowl and stir well.
- Add milk if needed to reach your desired consistency. Different protein powders may be thicker than others so adjust to your preference.
- Top with salted peanuts (chopped if you'd like) and caramel syrup.
- If you have trouble finding sugar free caramel syrup, you could try something like Skinny Syrups or the caramel syrups designed for mixing drinks. Most are clear, but the flavor is there. You could also try using something like caramel extract.
- Any milk or liquid will work for this recipe.
- If you're wondering about overnight oats, the recipe should work fine unless you're planning on warming them up the next day. If that's the case, you may want to omit the protein powder and add it after warming the oats up.

Just made this ... it is so rich and decadent that it should be an after dinner dessert! It’s absolutely delicious. I didn’t have any peanuts on hand so I omitted those for my breakfast but adding them would be a true dessert. I can’t even finish the bowl it’s so sweet and rich. Well done!!
