Chocolate Covered Strawberry Protein Oats with Egg Whites

Good morning!

Guess what? This is my 100th blog post! It's crazy to see how far I've come. I'll notice a comment or repinning of one of my first posts and it always shocks me. The photos are so funny, just a plate or glass sitting on my old apartment's kitchen table. I also just got a nice professional camera, so hopefully my photos and posts will continue to improve! I didn't know much about the blogosphere originally--I just knew I wanted to capture all my recipes. I'm also passionate about health and fitness and I wanted to create a way in which I could share healthy lifestyle tips. I hope you are enjoying my journey so far.

Today I have another protein oatmeal post after my Protein Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal with Egg Whites took off. I like to change up my food so I don't get tired of it, so here's another oatmeal recipe I hope you enjoy! Who doesn't love chocolate covered strawberries in the morning?

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Protein Oats with Egg Whites
Serves 1

½ cup old fashioned oats
½ cup unsweetened almond milk
½ cup water
½ ripe banana, sliced
¼ cup liquid egg whites or 2 egg whites from whole eggs
3 tsp cocoa (or cacao) powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
pinch of sea salt
strawberries and mini chocolate chips for topping

1. In a small saucepan, bring almond milk, water, salt and banana to a boil.
2. Once boiling, add oats and turn down heat. Simmer for 5-6 minutes until most of the liquid has been absorbed.
3. Stir in egg whites and whisk constantly immediately. Doing this will ensure a fluffy consistency rather than scrambled egg pieces. About 1 minute.
4. Pour oatmeal into a bowl and add sliced strawberries and mini chocolate chips.
