Mediterranean Whipped Protein Oatmeal (Proats)
This whipped protein oatmeal THREE WAYS is a delicious gluten free breakfast to fuel your morning! Enjoy three delicious flavour combinations including tropical, peanut butter & chocolate, and Mediterranean.
- ¼ cup old fashion rolled oats gluten free if needed
- 3/4 cup water
- Pinch of salt
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- ½ cup egg whites
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 1 very ripe banana finely mashed
- 1 fig sliced
- 2 tbsp pistachios crushed
- 2 tbsp 2% Greek yogurt
- 2 tbsp pomegranate seeds
- ½ tsp honey
In a small pot, combine the oats with the water, salt and cinnamon. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to medium. Stir the pot occasionally until the oats have absorbed almost all of the water but are still very moist and thick- about 3-5 minutes.
In a bowl, beat the egg whites until they froth up, then add them to the pot with the oats. Cook, stirring constantly until the mixture is creamy and fluffs up- about 3 minutes.
Stir in the vanilla, and banana and again, stir until well combined. Turn off the heat, cover the pot, and let the oats sit for another 3 minutes until they really puff up and get super creamy and rich.
Add Mediterranean toppings and enjoy!
