1 (serving size = 375 g)
- 45 g old-fashioned oats
- 250 g water or milk of choice (the macros for this recipe were calculated using water)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- Pinch of salt
- 50 g ripe banana, thinly sliced (set a few slices aside for garnish, if desired)
- 50 g egg whites
- 15 g powdered peanut butter, like PB2 or PB Fit
- 10 g chopped walnuts, toasted if desired
- 10 g maple syrup
Egg whites in oatmeal? Trust us, it’s magic. Not only do the egg whites add a punch of protein, but they transform the oats into a thick and creamy porridge that will keep you full for hours.
- In a medium-sized saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the oats, water, cinnamon, pinch of salt and banana. Stir the oatmeal until the liquid has absorbed and the bananas break down a little, about 3 minutes.
- Add the egg whites to the pot and stir until thick and creamy, about 2–3 minutes, making sure to mix continuously to keep the egg whites from scrambling.
- Remove the oatmeal from the stove and add it to your serving bowl. Top with PB2, walnuts and maple syrup.
Do not use egg whites in overnight oats. They must be cooked in order to be safe to eat.
