Vanilla Protein Porridge

Here's a great alternative to your morning oats.  To keep my diet and nutrition on track and to save time during the week, I meal prep my breakfasts and lunches each Sunday for the coming week.  This week I prepared this protein and fiber packed porridge that will defiantly keep you full until lunch.  I usually change up my breakfasts from week to week, but this combination is so tasty, it's defiantly going to be sticking around for the colder months!

I recently added maple extract to my baking cabinet, and I have not been let down!  It's the perfect addition to this breakfast.  If you don't have maple extract in your baking cabinet, I suggest you go out and get some ASAP because it's amazing!  It's what took this breakfast from average to exceptional.
