If you follow me on Instagram (@carrotsncake), you might have seen the delicious-looking bowl of Pumped Up Banana Oatmeal in my feed last week. I actually just winged it with the measurements, so I didn’t have a recipe to share, but I recently recreated it to share on CNC and, boy, is it a good one. It’s tasty, has lots of healthy fats, and packs nearly 20 grams of protein! Yayy! I usually add a big scoop of nut butter, and I’m full for hours!
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1/2 cup almond milk (or other milk variety)
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 cup liquid egg whites
- 1/2 banana, sliced
Directions: Combine oats with almond milk and chia seeds in a bowl and then refrigerate overnight. The next morning, combine oat mixture with egg whites and sliced banana in a pot on the stovetop. Heat and stir until egg whites thicken. (Pro tip: Break up banana slices with a spoon while you stir.) Remove from heat, pour into a bowl, and add your favorite toppings (i.e. nut butter, sliced almonds, fresh berries) before enjoying!
