A few weeks ago I posted my how-to on making egg white oats. Truth be told I eat custard oats much more often than egg white oats. Egg white oats give you a ton of volume whereas custard oats give you a more creamy bowl of oatmeal.
In the past I used to only eat the whites of egg – no yolks please. Those days are in the past and I regularly eat 1-2 whole eggs a day now. The yolk is full of vitamins and minerals that help our bodies function properly, plus it’s a good source of healthy protein.
An egg a day keeps the doctor away, right?
How to make custard oats
Begin by heating your water/milk up to a soft boil (I used 3/4 cup water + 1/4 cup soymilk for 1/3 cup oats).
Add the oats with a pinch of sea salt, stir and reduce to about medium heat.
Crack your egg into a bowl. I use 1 egg for my oatmeal. Beat with a fork until light yellow and a bit frothy.
After about 8 minutes your oatmeal should look like this. Still a tiny bit watery, but the oats have softened up nicely.
Turn the heat down to low, slowly pour in the egg and stir a lot really quickly.
Keep stirring until your oatmeal begins to get really creamy and custard like. That’s when you know the egg has cooked thoroughly. Add any spices, like cinnamon, that you want. I added peanut flour + some extra milk into this bowl.
Pour into a bowl and top with fresh fruit, nut butters, granola, seeds or whatever you like. Pomegranates go great with a subtle peanut flavor.
Have you tried custard oats or even egg white oats before? Which do you prefer?
Did you join in on the mini-challenge? Those that have, how’s your second day going? Keep up the good work!
Also, yes it’s a shocker but you CAN train your cat to use a toilet. It’s a lot of work and persistence at the end, but we’re about 90% there. It’s the funniest looking thing too.
