– 1/2 cup dry oats
– 1 cup water
– 1/2 scoop of vanilla whey protein powder (Muscle Milk brand)
– 3 egg whites (I use liquid egg whites so I don’t have to waste yolk)
– 1/8 tsp baking powder
– small handful of blueberries
– dash of cinnamon
1. Set oven to 350F.
2. Mix all ingredients together in a pan and place in oven for 30 min.
Yummy yummy yummy. I was so hungry at this point. Waiting 30 min was like torture!!!
It came out so beautifully! No oil or sugar used. Can you believe it!!??
The finished product. It slipped right out of the pan. I didn’t even spray the bottom with Pam. So good. It was just barely sweetened by the vanilla protein powder. the berries added some tang and the oatmeal was soft like banana bread. I am DEFINITELY making this again.
I got a version of this recipe from Recipes for Gals in Figure and Bodybuilding. I love that facebook fan page. Even if you’re not thinking of entering a bikini competition, Jen has some of the cleanest most delish recipes on her page. In her original recipe, she did not use protein powder and instead used 2 packets of sugar/stevia. This will cut down the cals by 65 calories if you don’t want that extra protein.
Hope you enjoyed this recipe. I had a blast making it. I didn’t actually think it would turn out well at all, but to my surprise it was a WINNER. I am thinking I can microwave this concoction for faster results. It may not be as crispy on top though…
