Creamy Peanut Butter Protein Oats
I work-out on an empty stomach so you know what that means, I’m ravenous when I get home! This is my go-to breakfast 9-out-of-10 times. This feels up my stomach for hours plus I get the slow digesting carbohydrates and protein needed to fuel me for the morning.
Ingredients (serves 1):
1 c. water
1 c. almond milk (40 cal, sweetened with vanilla stevia)
1/2 c. rolled oats (not instant)
dash of salt (optional)
generous dash of cinnamon
2 egg whites
1 BIG spoon of favorite peanut butter (Skippy Supper Chunky is my fave)
Step 1: Put water, milk, oats, salt, and cinnamon into a small sauce pan, heat on med-high.
Step 2: When oats reach a boil turn heat down to medium and boil for 8 minutes.
Step 3: Next add 2 egg whites and continue to cook for 2 minutes, stirring often to make sure nothing sticks.
A bowl of oatmeal every day: lowers cholesterol, boosts immune system, stabilizes blood sugar, prevents breast cancer, keeps you fuller longer, and is 100% all natural.
