These oats are my favorite way to start a long day. They’re the perfect, fluffy canvas for all of your favorite toppings and it’s an easy way to get in a serving of protein first thing in the morning!

Instructions:

Equal parts oats (quick or rolled) and non-dairy milk: I typically stick with
½ cup of each ½ tbsp chia or ground flax seeds
1/4 cup egg whites

Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl. Cook on low on stovetop, whisking frequently, until light and fluffy. Alternatively, you can microwave in 30 second intervals, whisking well in between, until done (about 2-3 minutes).

Optional additions:

Powders: Matcha, turmeric, cacao powder, maca
Nut butter (…obviously!)
Fruit (raw or dried)
Ricotta, cream cheese, or coconut cream
Veggies: steamed carrots, pumpkin puree, spinach puree (mix in before cooking)
Quinoa (substitute 1/2 of oats for cooked quinoa)
Nuts, seeds, & other textures: raw nuts, chia seeds, pepitas, bee pollen, flax seed, quinoa crisps, chocolate chips, granola – use your imagination!
