You know what really makes my mornings? Oatmeal.
Not just any oatmeal, mind you. With the help from one of my fave food bloggers, I've concocted a recipe for creamy, buttery whipped oatmeal that fills me up with those good carbohydrates and keeps me going all morning.
1/2 cup Steel Cut Oats
1 cup water
3 egg whites, beaten with a fork until frothy
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tbsp salted butter
1 tbsp creamy almond butter
2 sliced strawberries (optional)
1. Combine oats and water in a saucepan on medium heat.
2. Cook until it begins to simmer, usually for 5 mins. Stir and reduce the heat, stirring frequently until the oats have absorbed almost all of the water.
3. Combine the vanilla with the beaten egg whites and pour into the oats mixture, whipping vigorously until well blended.
4. Add the butter.
5. Continue to cook for several more minutes, until the oats have absorbed all of the water and egg white and start puff up. Cover the pot and remove from heat. Let sit for 5 mins before serving with 1 tbsp almond butter and strawberries for garnish (if you wish).
With the almond butter, this breakfast is just 400 calories!
