These high protein turmeric oats with cottage cheese are protein packed and a tasty way to start your day off. We also like to eat them at snack time too!


1 cup raw old fashioned oats

2 cups water

1/2 cup 2% pureed cottage cheese

1/4 cup ground flaxseed

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground turmeric


Bring water to a boil in medium pot;dd oats and stir. Reduce heat to low simmer and cook 10-15 minutes until liquid is almost absorbed.

Remove oats from heat; stir in cottage cheese, flax, cinnamon and turmeric.

Add your favorite toppings like berries, nut butter and chocolate chips 🙂


Process cottage cheese in a food processor or blender for smooth texture, or don’t and just stir right into oats. Both taste great, but processing helps picky/selective eaters.

For even higher protein oats, cook oats in milk instead of water, or go 1/2 milk 1/2 water.
