Ingredients

  • ¾  Cup  steel cut oats, such as Quaker Quick 3-Minute
  • 1 ½  Cup  water
  • egg whites, beaten with a fork until frothy
  • ½  Tablespoon  salted butter
  • ½  Teaspoon  pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3  Cup  Greek yogurt
  • 1/3  Cup  sliced bananas
  • 1/3  Cup  walnuts
  • ¼  Cup  dried cranberries

Directions

Begin cooking oats according to package directions on the stovetop. After the oats have absorbed most of the water, pour in the egg whites and vanilla and whip vigorously with a fork until mixture is well blended. Raise the heat to medium and stir in the butter. Continue to cook for 4 more minutes, bringing the oats back to a simmer and stirring frequently. When all the water is absorbed and the egg whites have caused the oats to puff and appear creamy, cover the pot and remove from the heat. Let the oats sit covered for 5 minutes. Stir the oatmeal, add the toppings, and enjoy!

Egg White Shopping Tip

What’s the difference between brown and white eggs? Besides color, nothing – different breeds of chicken account for the differences in color – quality and freshness are what really count.

Egg White Cooking Tip

In addition to keeping foods like granola, yogurt, and fruit on hand, plan ahead for hectic weekdays by whipping up extra batches of waffles or pancakes and individually freezing them for easy morning meals.
