Hey, hey!

I made a delicious bowl of oatmeal for breakfast this morning and, boy, was it satisfying. I forgot how filling a simple bowl of oatmeal can be!

This bowl of oatmeal was particularly satisfying because I added a little extra protein in the form of liquid egg whites. Egg whites mixed into oatmeal might sound a little weird, but if you get the measurement just right, you won’t even taste them, but you”ll still get the nutrient benefits of protein in your diet.

Between the egg whites, rolled oats, and the scoop of almond butter that I added just before eating, this breakfast packs around 20 grams of protein, which kept me full straight through until lunch. So if you’re looking for a tasty breakfast that will keep you going all morning long, this recipe is for you!

Maple-Cranberry-Almond Protein Oatmeal


  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/3 cup liquid egg whites (or two large egg whites)
  • 1 tbsp dried cranberries
  • 1 tbsp sliced almonds
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup


  1. Combine all ingredients in a pot on the stovetop.
  2. Cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally, until oatmeal thickens to your desired consistency.
  3. Remove from heat, pour into a bowl, and serve with your favorite toppings, such as a scoop of nut butter for added protein and some healthy fats.

Serves 1



  1. I love adding egg whites to my oatmeal. It gives it a nice texture, keeps me full for much longer and doesn’t alter the taste at all. Win-win in my books 🙂

  2. This sounds like perfect breakfast, or in my case, lunch today! I am also preggie (12w 3d), so I am always looking for more ways to get protein without necessarily eating gobs of meat/chicken (doesn’t sound good to me at this time). Thanks for the recipe! By the way, you look ADORABLE as a prego!

  3. YUM! I just recently oatmeal made with egg whites this weekend and I’m obsessed! I used to be a big fan of protein powder mixed in with oatmeal but using egg whites is more natural and makes for a much bigger bowl! I’m pressed for time in the morning so I use the microwave. Simply nuke with water for a couple minutes, stir and add in egg whites, then nuke for a couple more minutes. Quick and simple!

  4. That looks good. I will have to try the egg whites. I love oatmeal and have fun putting different ingredients in. Have a great day!

  5. I think it’s finally time to try adding egg whites to my oats…any breakfast involving maple/cranberry/almond just sounds too good to pass up! And especially if it’s a good source of protein. Eating something like a typical bowl of cereal or bagel for breakfast will only hold me over for an hour or so. Love that I have all of these ingredients in my kitchen, too. 🙂

  6. Mmmm. I love adding the whole egg to oatmeal…it makes it so much creamier! & you’re right, you can’t even taste it! I add egg yolks to smoothies too for the same reason…added good fats & creamy texture! Now I’m hungry…

  7. This looks like a yummy winter time breakfast. As much as I love fruit and juice for breakfast when it’s hot out, there’s nothing like a hot bowl of oatmeal when I can barely crawl out of bed!

  8. Yum. This is my breakfast every day, except I make mine with half oatbran from TJs and half oats. The bran makes them extra creamy. So good drizzled with coconut butter too!

  9. Adding egg whites is a genius idea! I sometimes avoid oatmeal because even when I add almonds I don’t feel it keeps me as full as my usual yogurt parfait.

    Do you just use the store brand egg whites in the container or do you use your own eggs and separate? Thanks for sharing!

  10. I need to try this. I have yet to find a breakfast that satisfies me until lunch time. I am usually found with my hand in a bag of trail mix around 10 am to keep the hangry me from coming out at work.

  11. I have to say… I loathe oatmeal. I give it a go every so often but- ew. I was due for another try (its just such an easy option!) so I used your recipe today- loved it! No idea if its the almond butter or what, but I’m a fan! Finally!
