Apple Pie Egg White Oatmeal

There’s no reason your slender breakfast should be boring, or your oatmeal should taste like anything other than pie. With the addition of egg whites, this oatmeal makes for a nutritious and filling breakfast dish. Whip up a quick veggie egg white omelette to go along side of it and you’ll be good to go.

In honor of the breakfast event chef/author Nisa Burns and I are hosting at CYC Fitness tonight, I thought it’d be a good time to share this cozy recipe I whipped up over the break. It’s a take off of my overnight oats that requires a little more passive cooking time, but goes perfectly with hot coffee and cold mornings.

note: If you want to make this recipe but miss the perk of making overnight oats in advance, throw all of the ingredients together the night before, just wait to add the baking powder until the morning of. Then pop them in the oven and go take a shower, check e-mails, or ya know, longingly stare at the oven until you can dig in.

Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats

If you’re following me on Instagram, then you already know of my overnight oats habit. See, I have class on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 am to 5 pm, which is borderline blasphemy. The last thing I want to do on those early mornings is set my alarm clock even further back to cook up breakfast.

Enter the beauty of overnight oats. I throw these together the night before and then bring them to school to eat during my first or second class. That way, I can wake up a little later and I’m not left feeling hungry at like 10 am after eating breakfast at the crack of dawn.

The recipe I’m sharing today is a peanut butter banana variation, but I’ve really run the gamut of flavors– mixed berry, pumpkin (shocker), chocolate peanut butter banana, etc. Lately I’ve been thinking of doing a fall-inspired concoction with some dried cranberries and cinnamon. The possibilities are endless! I feel so alive!!!

Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats
Calories: 310 | Fat: 6.0 g (Sat Fat: 0.8 g) | Carbohydrate: 52.6 g | Fiber: 13.2 g| Protein: 27.1 g

ingredients:
1/2 C uncooked oats (my current favorite is Mother’s rolled oats, but plain Quaker Quick Oats will do ya dandy)
1/2 C unsweetened vanilla almond milk (also just a matter of preference and calorie consciousness)
2 T protein powder (I use Whole Foods 365 Whey Protein Powder because it’s cheap and moderate in calories)
1 T PB2
1/2 to 1 packet Splenda
1/2 of a small banana
1/4 C Fiber One

directions:
1. The night before you want to eat the oats, combine all of the ingredients (except for the Fiber One) in a container with a lid. Stir well because encountering clumps of protein powder will make you never want to eat again.
2. Cover and store in the fridge overnight.
3. In the morning, top your oats with Fiber One and dig in!

notes:
When I first started overnighting it with my oats, I never used protein powder. The taste still rocked but I did notice a huge difference in my how long I stayed full once I added it.

That being said, this breakfast is perfect before a late morning workout. The whole grain carbohydrate of the oats and simple carbohydrate of the fruit will energize you, and the protein will tide you over until lunch.

If you want to change up your flavors, take out  the PB2 and banana. Mix it up however you’d like.

Feeling inspired? I’d love to hear your flavor ideas!
