We all know how good oats are.
Oats in a jar, oats with nut butter, oat cookies, oats in granola, oats in smoothies and stovetop oats.
This time, I wanted to fluff up my oats. I mean really puff those babies up and give them a big head like they deserve.
So here it goes: Oats + Egg Whites = Fantastically Fluffy Oatmeal
2 servings of your favorite oatmeal cooked
4 egg whites
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
Make your oatmeal on the stovetop as usual. I used part milk, water and honey vanilla flavored coffee creamer and McCann’s Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal. Beat 4 egg whites, cream of tartar and cinnamon in a medium bowl on high speed until stiff peaks form. When there is just a little bit of liquid left in your oatmeal on the stovetop, fold in the beaten egg whites and continue to stir while cooking on medium low heat for 3-5 minutes. Keep stirring until oatmeal gets as thick as you like it. Spoon into a bowl and serve!
Add sweetener or vanilla/almond extract if desired to flavor your fluffy oats!
I used part water, part skim milk and part honey vanilla flavored coffee cream liquid as the base for my bowl of oats.
Beat the 4 egg whites, cinnamon and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form~
Stir the whipped egg whites in to the cooked oatmeal~
I should have put in some vanilla or almond extract too~Next time!~
Keep stirring and stirring until the oatmeal reaches your desired consistency~
Can you see the egg whites in the oats? Puffed it up alright!
The oatmeal was so light and airy, not heavy and thick like oatmeal sometimes is~
I should have drizzled on some nut butter or something, but this just tasted really good as is!
I have OATMEAL fever. Do you?
I love pomegranates on my oats!
I know there are a ton of toppings to put on a bowl of oats, but if you could only choose 1 thing to put on your oatmeal bowl, what would it be?
