Hardgainer Meals

When you're a hardgainer and you really want to gain weight, it can seem like an impossible dream to achieve. One of the issues we have is a lack of time to make meals. When you want to put on weight, you have to be consistent with your eating. This also means you have to be consistent with your cooking.

When we have to eat a lot to put on weight, it is best to not over complicate things. Hardgainer meals should be as simple and as quick as possible to make sure they are going to be made. When preparing large meals, it can sometimes be discouraging and time consuming. You most likely will not be consistent if your meals are overly complicated.

I'm going to show you a couple quick hardgainer meals that can be made by anyone at anytime and are easy to consume.

You want to put on weight and you want to make sure this food is healthy. Just because the food is healthy does not mean it has to taste like crap. How about some chocolate chip cookies? Everyone loves chocolate chip cookies!


  • 1 cup of quick oats
  • 1/2 cup protein powder
  • 1/4 cup of peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup of chocolate chips
  1. Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Spoon out balls of the mixture on to a greased baking sheet and form into cookies. Bake for 5-8 minutes, depending on size of cookies.

Nutrition Facts:

Per Cookie

Calories = 220

Carbs = 19

Fat = 10

Protein = 17

This is a lot of calories right here in just one cookie. Add some whole milk in there and you have yourself a pretty healthy high calories meal.

Here is a quick easy recipe that is high in protein and calories.

  • 300 grams 1% cottage cheese
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 tbsp natural peanut butter
  1. Mix the berries in a bowl with the cottage cheese.
  2. Eat the peanut butter off of a spoon and drink the milk.

Nutrition Facts:

Calories = 645

Carbs = 44

Fat = 27

Protein = 53

This will vary depending on brand and how much you choose to use. Another variation of this would be to add some plain greek yogurt in with the cottage cheese and berries. You could even toss a banana in there for more calories if you wish.

As you can see making quick hardgainer meals doesn't have to be difficult. There are plenty other hardgainer meals that are just as quick and simple to make.
