Maple-Cranberry-Almond Protein Oatmeal

Posted on

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.

Maple-Cranberry-Almond Protein Oatmeal

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!
