Oatmeal Mix Up!
My Coach would be the first to tell you that “There is NO OFF-SEASON”, but at the Forefront of the Trainin’ Season, one does usually take in more calories. That said, when I make oatmeal it’s typically with plain, unsweetened soy milk, almond butter, banana, dried cranberries, dried cherries, almonds and walnuts. YUMMY!!
But, I wanted to see if I could add more protein to it. So, I had the idea to whip up my egg whites (like I do for my Breakfast Cloud recipe) and blend them with the oatmeal.
Okay here’s how to mix’em up….
Prepare oatmeal by mixing 2 cups water to 1 cup of oatmeal. Get that boilin’ and then turn the heat down to low and put a lid on it for 15 minutes.
While that’s cookin’, whip up 7 egg whites with a hand mixer until they peak.
When the 15 minutes timer for the oatmeal goes off, remove from heat, take off the lid and add the following:
2 TBSPs Almond Butter
1 Cup Chopped nuts (whatever you like)
1 Cup Dried fruit (Cherries and Cranberries are great!)
2 TBSPs Flax
Stir all of the above into the oatmeal. Then FOLD in the whipped up eggwhites until they are just blended into the mixture you just created.
Spray non-stick cooking spray or place muffin liners in a muffin pan and then fill each section with this muffin batter.
Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes.
These muffins are light, fluffy and mighty tasty!! ENJOY!!
