🥣it’s been forever since I had an oatmeal post! It was such a staple in my dorm room, but now being at home there’s so much other stuff I’ve been wanting to actually cook. But the oatmeal is back baby!!
🥣what if I told you this WHOLE GIANT BOWL was under 400 calories? Well it’s true! I was full for hourssss
🥣the secret to high-volume oats without racking up calories is to use low-cal, high-volume ingredients: I’m talking cauliflower rice, wheat bran, whipped egg whites, and lots of water!
🥣MACROS: 359 cals, 3F, 33P, 51C
•170g frozen riced cauliflower
•1 packet Quaker no sugar added maple brown sugar
•20g wheat bran
•1 cup water + more as needed
•1 cup nonfat milk
•2T sugar free syrup
•stevia to taste
•3T Liquid egg whites
•1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
•put the cauliflower rice in a medium pot with 1/2 cup of water, and bring to a boil •once boiling, add the oats, wheat bran, and milk, and let boil again
•bring down to a simmer, then add the syrup, stevia and salt
•let simmer until it thickens up a bit, then add the other 1/2 cup of water (or more!) and continue simmering
•whip the egg whites to stiff peaks, and when the oatmeal is almost at consistency, put the egg whites in 1/3 at a time. It’s important to stir them in fast so they don’t cook before separating - no one wants a chunk of egg white in their oatmeal lol
•when it is to the consistency you want, put in a large (seriously, this is the biggest bowl I own) bowl and mix in the Greek yogurt
🥣tips: this is just the basic recipe without any add-ins, but would of course be delicious topped with a protein bar or with pb powder mixed in!
