If you haven’t noticed already, I am a major fan of oats for breakfast! I’ve gone through phases of overnight oats (hence my Overnight Oats eBook), protein oatmeal and even baked oatmeal for special occasions. It wasn’t until recently that I tried this oat and egg combination, but I’m so happy I did!
The reason I wanted to try it in the first place was to help increase my fullness after breakfast. Starting the day off with a meal that is satisfying and filling, sets you up for a day of focus and happiness (in my opinion)! One of the best ways to add that satisfaction factor is to increase the protein intake, and although oats do provide about 5 grams of protein per a 1/2 cup serving, that isn’t sufficient for a full meal.
So adding in an egg was the new idea! This addition provides an extra 6 grams of protein, as well as some healthy fats, B vitamins and other minerals. As you can see, I also like my toppings, which gives another opportunity to maximize protein, flavour and texture in this delicious oatmeal bowl.
If you are looking for a relatively quick and easy breakfast that keeps you full and satisfied WHILE being a cozy and tasty bowl, this is the recipe for you. Let’s start the trend of Oatm-egg (cleverly coined by my boyfriend), so we all have productive and happy days!
