The WonderFUl World of Egg Whites and Oats!

When it comes to my Oats...

I honestly crave them be it in whatever and whichever form they come!

Be it in a bowl, on plate, in a ramekin dish, on the floor (kidding!)...

I just really, truly enjoy my Oats and OatFUlly you do to! (Good play on words, yes, no?! It made me laugh, which probably means someone out there is shaking there head. cough cough, SuperFit! lol)

A simple Oatmeal Bowl of Goodness.

When it comes to my Egg Whites...

Not a day goes by that I go without them!

I absolutely love them!

I like my Burnbrae Farms Naturegg Simply Egg Whites!

They start my day, they meet me in the middle of the day and they simply make my day! (Well, they make me happy and keep me totally satisfied! lol)

There are just so many ways I can make use of them!

On a day to day basis...

You're definitely bound to hear me say...

Pass me the Egg Whites! (At least once! lol)

I've got plenty to go around!

So where am I going with this?! Well...

I've decided I'm going to share with you some of my favorite recipes using Egg Whites and Oats! (If not alone then together! They make the perfect couple!)

Okay, so let the sharing begin!

Let's start with the simple stuff like...

A bowl of scrambled Egg Whites!


Recipe:


Add a few veggies into the mix and you get...


Recipe:

  • Naturegg Simply Egg Whites
  • 1 T Ground Flax Seeds
  • 1 large handFUl of Spinach
  • Sliced Cherry Tomatoes
  • Minced Ginger
  • Chili Peppers or Hot Sauce

Next we have one of my favorites...

Low Carb Protein Pancakes...


Blend:
  1. Naturegg Simply Egg Whites 
  2. 1 scoop of Revolution Whey Chocolate Protein Powder (brand and flavor of choice)
  3. 2 T Ground Flax Seeds
  4. 2 Packets of  NOW Vanilla Stevia.
Instructions:
  1. Pour mixture into a heated fry pan;
  2. Make the pancakes as big or as small as you like! (If you like to make the bite-size ones like me, have some pouring patience lol)
**FYI: I always throw all the cooked pancakes back into the pan to make them crispy (I wouldn't though if they were bigger!) I then sprinkle some cocoacinnamon or another packet of Vanilla Stevia for some added tastiness.**

Switch up the ingredients a little bit, add some oats and you get...

Gluten-Free Oatmeal Protein Pancakes!


Recipe:
  • Naturegg Simply Egg Whites
  • 1/2 Cup Uncooked Gluten-Free Avena Only Oats (I just discovered these oats and my tummy absolutely loves them!)
  • 2 T Ground Flax Seeds
  • 2 Packets of NOW Vanilla Stevia
  • Sprinkle a little Cinnamon to top! (And maybe some extra Stevia if you're feeling a little sweeter!) 

Instructions are same as the ones listed above.

Do you like baking?!
I just discovered that I sort of do! (I'm having FUn with it seeing that I'm very new to it!)
Here are some of my fave homemade baked goods!
Baked Banana Chocolate Protein Oats!

Mix together in a bowl:


Instructions:

Place mixture in 2 medium sized ramekin dishes and bake in the oven at 350F for about 15-20 minutes.

Soooo good!

More on the treat side of things I have...
(I'm going to link up these recipes to shorten the length of this post as I'm finding I've got a lot more to share in terms of goodness!)
Oatmeal Protein PB2 Cookies!
I added Carob Chips to a separate batch
(You can substitute Carob for Choco. Chips you wish)

Oatmeal Carob Chip Protein Cookies!






Mini Raspberry and Chocolate Protein Loafs! (I thought it would be cute to make smaller ones too)

Yum!

Just as a side note...

Some of these recipes may be similar in the list of ingredients because...
I simply like to enjoy these baked goods in different forms!
Keep things interesting ya know!

In sum...
My goal was to show how much you can cook up and bake up using both Egg Whites and Oats, so...
HopeFUlly you'll try a recipe or two!
Mmm Mmm good!
