DSCN1238

Ingredients:

1/2 cup old fashioned oatmeal

1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1/2 cup egg beaters (egg white substitute)

1/2 pear, chopped into bite sized pieces

6 walnut halves, chopped

1/8 tsp ginger

1/8 tsp vanilla

cinnamon to taste

Splenda or other sweetener to taste

Directions:

Put oats and milk in a pan, heat over medium heat to boiling. While stirring and waiting for oats to boil, cut 1/2 of a pear into bite sized pieces, and add to the pot. Add the chopped walnuts too. When it reaches a boil, continue to cook and stir for 5 minutes (just like you make all oatmeal…)

After 5 minutes, remove from heat, and slowly add egg whites to oats while stirring rapidly. When all of the egg whites have been incorporated into the oats, put back on the heat, and cook for at least 1 minute, until thick and creamy. Remove from heat and add ginger, vanilla, cinnamon, and splenda.

Split into 2 servings, one for now, and one for tomorrow morning!

Makes 2 servings.

Per serving: approximately 200 calories, 10 grams protein!
