I have found the perfect little creation of carbs, protein, and fats to fuel yourself for the morning! These oats are hot and satisfying perfect for the cold winter months that are upon us. The texture is cake like. These oats are also versatile; you can change the flavors, fruits, nut butters, sweet, and savory, whatever you are in the mood for. They are made out of a simple four ingredients and then the fix ins that you need. Oats, egg whites, fruit and nut butter is all you need! Simple, cheap and healthy who can ask for anything better!
I decided to try out some combinations because I love oats, and even though they do contain protein oats alone are more carb heavy than protein heavy. When I started lifting more again I realized that high protein is what my body needs and craves. It took awhile to find the perfect combination but I finally found it and now I am in love with these egg white oats!
You begin by cooking down the oats; I use water/milk, stevia, and pumpkin pie spice (it is pumpkin season after all). After the oats are cooked down I add the egg whites, I began by mixing them in, but then I just left them alone and let them cook. A crust will start to form and that is when you want to keep stirring. Once the egg whites are completely cooked you empty them in their bowl. I then add the fruit to the pot to warm them up. After they are warm I slide the fruit on top and add a tablespoon of nut butter.
2 T oats
4 egg whites
stevia to taste
pinch of sea salt
1 t pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon
fruit to top
1 T nut butter to top
Water to cover the oats when cooking
- Cook the oats, water, stevia, sea salt and spices together until oatmeal is cooked.
- Add in the egg whites, stirring in as you pour them. On medium heat let sit and cook and stir occasionally. Once the egg whites are completely cooked take off the burner.
- Add your fruit then nut butter on top and enjoy!
I have been obsessed with this more cakey like texture! And it packs a killer 21 grams of protein! My perfect after lifting fueling meal! Hope you guys enjoy!
