Cinnamon Vanilla Egg White Oats

The perfect combination of protein and complex carbs to start your day.

This recipe is for a single serving, but you can double or triple it easily.


2/3 C water
1/3 C large flake oats (aka. old fashioned oats)
1/4 C egg whites (or the whites of 2 large eggs)
1 tsp Truvia (or sweetner of your choice)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Splash of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Berries on top


Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan.  Reduce heat, add oatmeal and cook until water is gone (about 10 min). 

Reduce heat to low.  Beat egg whites for 30 seconds and stir in to oatmeal.  Whisk mixture vigorously for a couple more minutes so that egg whites are fully incorporated.  Add Truvia, vanilla and cinnamon, mix well. 

Serve with a splash of cold almond milk and your choice of berries.

To make ahead:  Prepare as directed (without almond milk and berries), place in refrigerator before bed, and in the morning, put it in the microwave for a minute or two and then add the almond milk and berries.

About 160 calories per serving and 12 grams of protein (without berries).
