Of course, you can use whatever type of oats you like. Such as steel-cut oats or quick-cooking oats. Although I don’t recommend using the instant oatmeal packets.
Type of Protein to Use
When choosing the protein powder for proats, it comes down to two factors; flavor and texture.
For flavor, my go-to is chocolate, but you can experiment with the huge variety of other flavors out there. Especially when you start adding other ingredients.
As far as texture, it depends on personal preference. However, I’ve found that micronized (smaller particle) protein powders make a thinner, almost runny oatmeal. While larger particle sizes give you thicker, fluffier oatmeal, which is better in my opinion.
For that reason, I use Body Fortress Whey Protein. This is a lower quality protein that I wouldn’t use for shakes, but it gives a great texture and flavor to your proats.
