- 2 large eggs
- 1½ cups milk of your choosing
- 1 scoop whey protein powder [optional instead of the eggs] (see recipe notes above)
- None in this recipe (see recipe notes above)
- Smart Carb
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 4 strawberries, chopped
- 20 blueberries
- ¼ cup dried cranberries (optional)
- 1-2 tsp honey (optional)
- Healthy Fat
- 2 tbsp butter
- ¼ cup mixed nuts
- Herbs, spices, Extras
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1½ cups water
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add oats and mix well until the oats are coated in butter. Stir in the salt.
- Add the water and give it a mix, then add the milk and cinnamon. Bring to boil. (Keep your eye on it to prevent it boiling over, and stir occasionally to keep it from sticking to the bottom of the saucepan.)
- Lower the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes until thickened. Remove from stove, crack the eggs into the saucepan, and mix thoroughly.*Add whey protein powder in now and mix well, if using.
- Allow to cool slightly (it will thicken further when cooled, therefore should you find it’s too thick for your taste, add 2 tbsp milk at a time until you get your desired consistency).
- Divide between 4 bowls and top with equal quantities of chopped strawberries, blueberries, dried cranberries and nuts with a drizzle of honey, if desired.
