Pumped Up Banana Oatmeal


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!

Pumped Up Banana Oatmeal


  • 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)


  1. 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!

  1. I have tried different variations of this recipe! I like using oats, but know a lot of people don’t use oats for various reasons. I like adding a touch of almond butter with the banana!

  2. We’re always looking for breakfast ideas! I like the sound of this recipe. Just curious if you’ve ever tried making this as a batch recipe for the week, like overnight oats? I wouldn’t have time for the second step in the mornings unless it’s just popping it in the microwave 🙂 Thanks!

    1. I’ve never tried. Sorry. But cooking it on the stovetop is really fast. Maybe 5 minutes? It might work in the microwave too!

  3. Yum! I love egg whites in my oatmeal, initially I thought it was weird but it’s totally not, it just makes it taste better (I usually make mine in the microwave)! I also love protein powder and cottage cheese for a protein boost!

  4. I love adding egg whites to my oats! It really does make the fluff factor amazing and I also love the added protein. That was always my problem with oats, when protein is not involved I get hungry so much faster!

  5. I saved this recipe when you shared it and kept forgetting to make it. Well, I finally had the chance to try it out today … holy yum!!! I loved how filling it was and how the chia seeds expanded from being in liquid all night. And, then the bananas being warm and softened took it to a whole other level!!

  6. Really like the dear information you offer in your articles. I’m able to bookmark your site and show the kids check out up here generally.i am really fel so happy after visiting your site.
