It's that time of the year when I wake up craving something warm and comforting. While oatmeal is my usual go-to, sometimes it just doesn't keep me satisfied long enough. I have found that a breakfast high in protein tide me over the best (at least until my next snack). Enter: oatless oats. Eggs whites are used in place of oats. Here is a recipe for a warm breakfast that is gluten-free and dairy-free.
In a medium saucepan, combine:
- 3/4 cup egg whites
- 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
- 1 banana, mashed
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Cook over low heat until the mixture starts to thicken, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and top with nut butter, berries, and shredded coconut. Enjoy!
