Egg Whites in Oatmeal? Is That Good?

Yes, it is! The egg whites make the oatmeal fluffy. It doesn’t taste like you are eating scrambled eggs as long as you mix it well. Refrigerating overnight helps everything mix well to prevent making scrambled eggs.

Why Eat Egg White Oatmeal for Breakfast?

Breakfast should have nutrients that energize you and keep you satisfied for a few hours. You don’t want your stomach growling during a meeting or have trouble focusing. Oatmeal contains carbohydrates and fiber to provide energy and keep you full. Egg whites supply the protein to satisfy you. If you add peanut butter, then that will provide fats for sustained energy.

If you work out on a regular basis, then you need to prioritize your protein intake. It can be a challenge to reach your daily protein needs. Egg white oatmeal is packed with 20 grams of protein to help repair and build your muscles.

Egg white oatmeal is a great meal prep breakfast. You prepare the ingredients the night before and then heat it up in the morning. This is a go-to breakfast for me when I know I will be in a rush in the morning. It is easy to take to work and eat at my desk or even eat if I am stuck in traffic.  

Ingredients

  • Oats: I used 100% whole grain old-fashioned oats. I stock up with the 10 lb. box from Costco.
  • Egg whites: I used 100% liquid egg whites.  
  • Almond milk: I used unsweetened vanilla. You can use any milk.
  • Cinnamon: optional, but adds more flavor. You can use any spice you like.
  • Toppings: peanut butter is my favorite. Add fruit like sliced banana or apple. Chopped nuts go well too. Add anything you like.

How to Make

  1. In a small microwave-safe bowl, add oats, egg whites, almond milk, and cinnamon.
  2. Gently mix ingredients together to evenly distribute cinnamon.
  3. Cover with lid and refrigerate overnight. This can be skipped, but the overnight soaking helps the egg whites mix with the oats.
  4. Take oats out of the refrigerator. Remove lid. Stir oats.
  5. Microwave for 1 minute. Take out and stir. Microwave again for 1 minute. Take out and stir. Microwave for 30 more seconds or until cooked.
  6. Add any toppings you like!

Tips

  • Leave a little room in the bowl. When filling the bowl with ingredients, make sure there is a little space and not filled all the way to the top. The egg whites fluff up the oats and will expand.
  • Microwave in increments. This prevents the oatmeal from exploding out of the bowl and making a mess.  
  • Add peanut butter while hot. The peanut butter will melt and make it easy to mix.
