The base is super simple- oats made with egg whites. I always add cinnamon for an extra pop, but it's totally up to you. You might think that sounds gross, but you really don't taste the egg whites and they make the oats really deliciously fluffy, and add a ton of protein to your morning. You can be like me and triple the recipe so I have enough to last a few days. Then, I zap it in the microwave, top it with deliciousness and I have a quick breakfast packed with protein, good fats, vitamins and minerals. Win-win-win!
When I make a big batch I triple this recipe:
In a small saucepan, boil 1 cup of water, add 1/3 cup oats and cook for about 8 minutes until oats are soft.
Then I add in about 1/3 cup egg whites and stir constantly until oats are really fluffy.
I pour in some cinnamon and I'm good to go!

My favorite toppings are fruits, since I tend to not get in as many a day as I should. I like to cut up a banana, 1/2 cup of blueberries, sprinkle with chia seeds, and add a blop of cashew butter to get some good fats in. This breakfast is so delicious and keeps me full for hours! I actually have to think about eating again, since it keeps me full so long!
Feel free to play around with the base and toppings for an easy, healthy, and super variable breakfast!
