National Egg Day: Blueberry Walnut Oat-less Oatmeal

Intern Kylie here wishing you the very happiest National Egg Day!

If that bowl of cereal for breakfast is sounding less than exciting, how about switching up your breakfast routine with something a little different?

How about something that is slightly reminiscent of cobbler (minus the ice cream and picnic setting) that is warm and creamy and covered with fresh berries?

For me, this breakfast is one of those meals that makes me jump out of bed in the morning because I’m so excited to eat it.  It’s incredibly fluffy and light, yet it somehow manages to be filling and a perfect way to start your day.  Especially a day such as National Egg Day.  You simply whisk together some egg whites, flaxseed and mashed banana and you’re 10 minutes away from an egg-credible (had to do it) breakfast.

The egg + banana combination may sound a little ummm unique…but for the sake of a delicious breakfast, I recommend you give it a try.  No, actually more than recommend.  I urge you to give it a try.  I would attempt to persuade you more but I already used all my persuasive skills by telling you it tastes like cobbler..

Blueberry Walnut Oat-less Oatmeal

serves 1

1/2 cup milk (almond, cow, hemp, coconut…you choose)

3 egg whites

2 Tbsp ground flaxseed

1 banana, mashed

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp vanilla

1/4 cup blueberries

2 Tbsp walnuts, chopped

drizzle of honey

Thoroughly whisk together egg whites and milk (you don’t want pieces of egg white to show up in your ‘oatmeal,’ so whisk until your forearm muscles cramp up).

Mix in the ground flaxseed, mashed banana, cinnamon and vanilla.  Pour mixture into a sauce pan and heat over medium heat, stir frequently and scrap the bottom of the pan (like you would if you were cooking scrambled eggs).  Cook until the mixture thickens to an oatmeal consistency.  About 10-15 minutes.  Serve hot topped with blueberries, walnuts and drizzle of honey.

    omg. I woke up this morning and had to make it. I do not have enough words in my vocabulary to describe how sublime this tastes. Usually, I have to force myself to eat in the mornings, but now I’m already excited about eating this again tomorrow. Thank you, a million – no, a BAZILLION – times over for this recipe!

      So glad you liked the recipe! It’s one of my favorites:) It’s kind of a weird idea with the banana + egg combo but it just works!! I’m happy you tried it:)

    Sounds wonderful! Do you think this would work with chia instead of flaxseed?

    This is right up my alley and I’d love to print off the recipe. Is there a printer friendly button I’m missing?
    I’d also like to subscribe via email, and I don’t see that option.
    Thanks!

    This sounds amazing and I can’t to try it. I have been looking for a healthy protein-heavy breakfast to kick of my mornings. The only problem is that I am NOT a morning person and can barely get out the door as it is. Can this be prepared ahead of time and then reheated to eat in the morning either at home or at the office?

    May I ask if I can substitute flaxseed for psyllium husk to achieve the same “binding effect”? can I also omit the eggs? Thank you for your reply! ๐Ÿ™‚ Great recipe, cant wait to try~
