How to Turn Boring Oats with 6 Steps into Muscle Building Banana Split Oatmeal

With a name like Banana Split Oatmeal, you have to think … kid-friendly.  But you’d be wrong!  This is yet another of one of many easy recipes from Metabolic Cooking.  When I made this today, I nearly fell off my chair it was to tasty.  I’ve had a few other anabolic type meals that are good but this takes the cake.  Nothing should taste this good unless it’s loaded with sugars and fats.

Frankly, I’m getting leaner eating this stuff oddly enough because it fits the nutrient profiles I’ve setup for my meal plans.

At this point, I’ve gotten a few emails asking me… “Marc, why are you GIVING these away?”

My answer is simple..

First, you cannot legally copyright a recipe in the United State of America.  You can copyright a secret ingredient, you can the exact wording but you can’t copyright a simple combination of foods.  Putting a banana into oatmeal is not a copyrightable action.  Loophole!

Second… because there’s about 200+ more of these in Metabolic Cooking!  Why hide them?  If I show you a few that are dropping me to my knees in awe, I can only hope you’ll catch onto my excitement and buy the book.  There’s no point in telling you how great these are, I’d rather you make a few I find to be exceptional and then discover for yourself that cooking can be easy and fun and delicious!

As I promised a Twitter friend, I will keep this simple and get to the point.

Banana Split Oatmeal:

Makes 1 Serving


• ½ cup oatmeal (quick or rolled)
• 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
• ½ cup skim milk
• Pinch of Stevia
• 1 banana, sliced
• 4 big strawberries, sliced
• 1 tablespoon Greek yogurt
• Water


1. In a big bowl, mix oatmeal with the milk and complete with water until it completely soaks the oatmeal.
2. Cook in a Microwave for about 1 minute – stir the mix , then microwave for another 1 minute.
3. Let the oatmeal cool down for about 3 minutes.
4. Add the chocolate protein powder, stir.
5. Stir in the banana and strawberry slices.
6. Top with the Greek yogurt and enjoy!

Quick Tip:
I used Vanilla flavored Greek yogurt.  It probably added some additional flavoring.  It wasn’t necessary for me to use any water.  The oats soaked perfectly and the consistency seemed fine to me.  If you want a bit more “liquid” or not as think, you may want to add in a little water.

How to Make Oatmeal Taste Better: Blueberry Oatmeal

Delicious Blueberry Oatmeal Recipe

If you think oatmeal is boring, plain or you have to be a “hardcore” bodybuilder and eat them raw with just water … WRONG!

If you think McDonald’s Oatmeal is the way to go … WRONG!

What you are about to read is by far the easiest, cheapest, healthy, oatmeal recipe I’ve tried in a decade.  You can find more bodybuilding recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

My “buddy” (whom I’ve never meet in my life but am friends with on Facebook; nice usage of the word huh) Dave Ruhl and author of the Anabolic Cooking book did it again with his Blueberry Oatmeal recipe.

Before I start into how awesome this blueberry oatmeal breakfast tasted and that you can literally make it anytime (breakfast, snack, dinner, whatever) let me give you a super short list of the benefits of eating oatmeal.  Keep in mind, it is really called Vanilla Cream Oatmeal but I always seemed to add some fruit to it; hence the slight name change.

Oatmeal Benefits:

  • Lowers the risk of developing heart disease
  • Promotes satiety or the feeling of being full
  • Promising research with Type 2 Diabetes
  • Assists in regularity (25g of fiber daily is recommended)
  • May reduce risks to certain types of cancer
  • Blood pressure regulation (in diets that include rich amounts of fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy products, and plenty of whole grains)

Here’s how to make the Vanilla Cream Oatmeal recipe from page 16 of Anabolic Cooking.

Vanilla Cream Oatmeal:

Makes 1 Serving


• 1 cup oatmeal
• 1cup Skim Milk
• 1 scoop (30g) of Vanilla Protein Powder
• 1/2 teaspoon of Stevia
• Pinch of Cinnamon


1. In a big bowl, mix all the ingredients (except for the Protein Powder)
2. Cook in a Microwave for about 1 minute – stir the mix , then microwave for
another 1 minute.
3. Let the oatmeal cool down for about 3 minutes
4. Add the vanilla Protein Powder

Blueberry Oatmeal:

You can add 1/ 2 cup of berries (your choice of berries) to add extra flavour.

Anabolic Oatmeal Variety

So no more oatmeal in water or plain.  I mean, if that’s what you like fine.  But if you are looking for something different.  Something with taste that meets the criteria of a bodybuilding meal, then you’ve found your next breakfast.
