Protein-Packed Apple & Almond Butter Oat Bowl

Posted by Nick Sheridan on

As the crisp air sets in, our mornings call for a warm and comforting breakfast that fuels our bodies and minds. Enter the humble oat bowl, a breakfast staple that offers endless possibilities for customisation. Today, we're taking this classic to a whole new level with a protein-packed version featuring the delicious combination of 99th Monkey Crunchy Almond Butter and fresh apples.

The Power of Oats:

Oats are a true breakfast champion. They're packed with complex carbohydrates, which provide sustained energy throughout the morning. They're also a good source of dietary fibre, keeping you feeling full and preventing those mid-morning hunger pangs. Additionally, oats offer essential vitamins and minerals like iron, magnesium, and B vitamins, all crucial for a healthy start to your day.

Protein Powder for an Extra Boost:

Taking your oat bowl from good to great is where protein powder comes in. Adding a scoop of your favourite protein powder significantly boosts the protein content of your breakfast. Protein is essential for building and repairing tissues, maintaining muscle mass, and promoting satiety. It helps you feel fuller for longer and keeps energy levels stable throughout the morning.

The Magic of 99th Monkey Crunchy Almond Butter:

Here's where 99th Monkey Crunchy Almond Butter truly elevates this oat bowl. Our nut butter offers a wealth of benefits beyond its delicious taste:

  • Healthy Fats: Nut butters are a fantastic source of healthy fats, which are essential for brain function, hormone regulation, and cell health. These healthy fats also contribute to feelings of satiety, ensuring you stay satisfied until lunchtime.
  • Creamy Texture: Adding a spoonful of 99th Monkey Crunchy Almond Butter transforms the oat bowl's texture. The creamy nut butter complements the chewy oats, creating a delightful textural experience in every bite.
  • Flavour Powerhouse: The rich, nutty flavour of our almond butter perfectly complements the sweetness of the apple, creating a taste sensation that's both satisfying and delicious.

Building Your Protein-Packed Apple & Almond Butter Oat Bowl:

Now, let's get down to the delicious part! Here's what you'll need to create this fall-inspired breakfast masterpiece:

  • Ingredients:

    • 1/2 cup rolled oats
    • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or your preferred milk)
    • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
    • Sliced apple
    • Pomegranate seeds
    • Blueberries
    • 1 tablespoon dried goji berries
    • Generous spoonful of 99th Monkey Crunchy Almond Butter


  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the oats and almond milk. Microwave for 2 minutes, or until the oats are cooked through and the mixture is hot and creamy.
  2. Stir in your chosen protein powder and mix well to ensure it's evenly distributed.
  3. Now comes the fun part: topping time! Top your oat bowl with the sliced apple, pomegranate seeds, blueberries, and goji berries.

A Match Made in Heaven: Almond Butter & Apple

The combination of apple and almond butter is a classic for a reason. The sweetness of the apple beautifully complements the nutty richness of the almond butter, creating a flavour that's both familiar and delightful. It's a taste bud party that never gets old.

Beyond Delicious: Texture and Sweetness

The addition of 99th Monkey Crunchy Almond Butter not only adds flavour but also elevates the oat bowl's texture. The creamy nut butter complements the chewy oats and creates a truly satisfying eating experience. The dried goji berries offer a delightful textural contrast with their chewy nature, while the pomegranate seeds add a pop of colour and a burst of sweet and tart flavour.
