PB&J Oats

It’s 11:30 pm right now.  When I got home from work the internet was not working and then of course it came right back on before it was time to leave for our softball team BBQ. 

Anyways, I’ll still give you my breakfast, as long as I don’t fall asleep at my computer in the process.  It was newish as promised.  PB&J Oats :D.  Oats aren’t new, but the PB&J part is!

Super simple:

  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup milk (I used almond milk)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 T chia seeds
  • 1 T maple syrup

Mix the oats, water, and milk and cook in microwave for 1 1/2 minutes.  Mix in the egg whites, by tempering* them first.  Whisk the egg whites while pouring in some of the hot liquid from the oats.  Then stir this mixture into the semi-cooked oats.  Microwave for 20-30 seconds at a time (usually 3 times for me) until the oats are cooked and thickened.  Watch them, because they have a tendency to boil over!  Add the chia seeds and maple syrup. 

*If you’re using bulk egg whites, just stir the oats while you pour in 1/3 cup of egg whites.

PB&J portion:

  • 1/4 cup frozen berries
  • sweetener
  • 1-2 T PB or almond butter
  • 1 T milk (I used almond milk)

Microwave the frozen berries, add sweetener of choice and mix.  Separately, mix PB and milk to form a thick sauce. 

Add to oats.  I also threw some coconut butter on top! 

The egg whites give these oats an awesome protein boost to keep your belly full :D!

Sorry, but it’s midnight now.  I hope these amazing oats are enough to hold you over!
