Egg white oats... 🥣 🥚 🤪
Why on earth would I put egg whites in my oats? To increase protein of course! (Apart from when they don’t actually land in my oats and end up on the floor!! #butterfingers This may have happened last week on 2 occasions 🙈😂😫)
For 1 egg white you get between 2-4g of protein for around 15kcals. So if you have 2, maybe 3 or even 4 egg whites that’s an easy way to increase protein without damaging your calorie limit!
Not only that, just like a soufflé they also add volume, meaning you get a fuller amount of porridge oats once cooked! 👌🏼😬
Simply, add egg whites to oats before cooking on the hob. Cook on a slow heat and stir frequently. I also add chia seeds to for volume and fibre. My recipe:
🥚2 Egg Whites
🌱5g Chia Seeds
💧Water - I don’t measure I just keep adding bits, I will usually add just enough to cover the oats, then keep adding when the consistency is too sticky.
Cook on a low heat for 5-10mins. Including the 25g scoop of @bulkpowders_uk whey protein powder I then use for my whey paste topping this comes out at about 33g protein. Of course if I added a few more egg whites I could easily make that 40g.
Add toppings of your choice! Mine are:
💪🏼 Whey Paste (Bulk Powders Vanilla)
🥜 PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter or Lotus Biscoff spread 😬
Give it a few practise goes, trust me, eggs in oats are delightful 😘
