With this 23 degree weather here in Northern NJ, I felt the intense need to post a recipe that will warm your soul and keep you satisfied through the day.
Now I'm sure you're asking yourself, "What the heck are proats?!
"Proats" is a combination of the words, protein and oatmeal, just meaning that this oatmeal has added protein to make it a really satisfying and healthy meal!
1/3 cup gluten free quick oats
2 egg whites (or 1/4 cup liquid egg whites)
10 oz water
7 drops Stevia (or monk fruit)
1/4 cup Granola
1 Tbsp Almond butter
1 square 100% cacao dark chocolate
Bring 10 oz of water to a boil
Add 1/3 cup oats, cinnamon, ginger and stevia (or Monk Fruit)
Whisk the ingredients and reduce heat to a simmer
Allow oats to absorb water, whisking every minute or so (for about 5 minutes)
Add and whisk in egg whites until blended with oats
Allow to sit for 2 minutes then whisk for 20 seconds
Turn burner off and allow oats to rest for 5 minutes
Pour oats into a bowl and place cacao square in center of mixture
Drizzle the almond butter on top
Scatter granola anyway you like
Eat and enjoy!
