Why

If you are wanting a high protein breakfast that is quick to make, you probably are not going to get too far with making a steak and eggs for breakfast. For anyone who wants a quick breakfast the choice is usually toast, cereal or a protein shake but the first two are not high in protein and the last is not sufficient to keep hunger at bay. Optimum Pro Oats combines slow releasing carbs from oats with 20g of protein per serving and delivers it as a delicious porridge that is quick to make, enjoyable to eat and delivers the right kind of carbs and protein to fuel your morning efforts.

When

Intended mainly as an easy to make breakfast cereal, there is of course no reason you cannot use Pro Oats more often if you are the kind of person who enjoys cereals at any time of day.

Who

Anyone wanting a high protein, nutritious breakfast that will keep their energy up for several hours and is also quick to make.

Predator Nutrition Pro Oats Review

Nobody could accuse Optimum Nutrition of not paying enough attention to breakfast. Even before the release of Pro Oats, Optimum already offer users Whey & Oats, 100% Oats & Whey, as well as Greek Yoghurt Protein Smoothie. All we can say is that the parent company of Optimum Nutrition, global dairy giant Glanbia, must be sitting on a lot of oats and protein, that or they are SUPER convinced that the world needs as much variety of breakfast bodybuilding options as possible.

How Does Pro Oats Stack Up?

The first thing we had to do was to compare Pro Oats to the other products made by Optimum Nutrition for the same purpose. We're happy to report that from a taste standpoint Pro Oats delivers well, and it certainly is a solid option for anyone who currently makes up a bowl of porridge and adds a protein powder to it. However, compared to the other three Optimum breakfast proteins, Pro Oats has the least amount of protein per 100g clocking in at just 29g of protein per 100g compared to over 60% in their Greek Yoghurt Smoothie, 54g in Whey & Oats and then 46g of protein per 100g in Oats & Whey (the original Optimum breakfast product).

A Protein Breakfast for a Different Audience

While the initial reaction of the bodybuilding audience would be to declare Pro Oats inferior to the other products mentioned, Optimum these days has moved on significantly from its bodybuilding origins so we tend to think of Pro Oats as being targeted more at the newcomer to sports nutrition or those whose protein requirements are relatively less but with higher carbohydrate needs (endurance athletes for example).

If that sounds like you, Pro Oats is a good choice as it scores well on taste and texture while it delivers on its fundamental goal of delivering a hearty breakfast that sustains the user for several hours before hunger returns.

Quick and easy

I’ve given this 3 stars as I was disappointed with the fact that the oats are so smooth it felt like I was having a thick gruel rather than a porridge. It was easy to make and I used the recommended 1 portion size, which although didn’t look much, especially after being to the gym, it was actually quite filling. Although it has sweetness in, it really does need some honey or similar as well.
