Protein Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal with Egg Whites


If you've been following my blog for long, you've probably caught on to how much I adore oatmeal. Or have an obsession. I'd say healthy addiction. The one caveat with oatmeal, though, is that I am ravenous just a couple of hours later, especially if I work out between breakfast and lunch. I'd seen several recipes featuring oatmeal with egg whites and I thought Well, why the heck not?

Um, guess what? New favorite.


The egg whites ended up making the oatmeal have a smooth, thick, almost custardy like texture. Custards always win in my book. And I felt satiated, which is all a girl can really ask for.

Protein Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal with Egg Whites
Makes 1 serving

Ingredients
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
1 teaspoon vanilla
pinch of sea salt
sprinkle of extra cinnamon
peanut butter, bananas, and/or almond for topping (optional)

Directions
1. In a small saucepan, bring almond milk, water, salt, cinnamon 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 your desired toppings. I added peanut butter and stirred it in along with extra bananas and almond pieces.

Enjoy!
