Protein Pumpkin Oatmeal with Egg Whites

Protein Pumpkin Oatmeal with Egg Whites

This protein pumpkin oatmeal with egg whites is loaded with pumpkin flavor and protein. The secret is whipping egg whites into the oats while they cook!

I have a growing list of posts that I need to write so I want to keep things short and sweet today with a quick and easy breakfast recipe that I’ve been loving this fall. There’s pumpkin involved and it’s packed with a hefty dose of protein. Get excited!!

I’ve been adding egg whites to my oatmeal for years, but hadn’t had them in a while since I didn’t really eat much hot oatmeal over the summer. Julie’s post for Three Minute Egg White Oatmeal inspired me to bring back the egg white oats and I figured now would be a great time to share the recipe.

I know adding egg whites to your oatmeal sounds a little odd if you’ve never done it before, but it’s actually pretty awesome. You end up with a nice and fluffy (not to mention filling) bowl of oatmeal.
The key is to avoid scrambling the egg whites. To do this, you simply have to continuously stir/whisk the egg whites while you’re adding them to the saucepan and as they cook.
Trust me on this… one time I got distracted and didn’t keep up with the stirring… I ended up with a bowl of oatmeal + scrambled egg white chunks. Not so appetizing.

Don’t worry though, if you take my advice and follow the recipe, you’ll end up with a delicious looking bowl of protein oats like what you see below. Pinky promise. 😉
I’m loving this pumpkin version, but you can add egg whites to whatever flavor oatmeal you like. I’ve tried it with my peanut butter chia…
