Book/Life Update: Today at MOPS, we discussed the mommy wars and how we compare one another. Sigh, I dunno. I love some food blogs out there, but I know that they are full-time bloggers who really work at this. I spend 30 minutes at most and would love to spend more taking perfect photos with the right accent pieces, those cute mini milk jars and striped straws with ombre everything. But, this is all I have to give for now and I’m trying. And I’m enough. And just happy with that.
Recipe Update: I love oatmeal and I love eggs, so I cooked them together! Now, you have to love eggy desserts and dishes to like this breakfast. With a little brown sugar and bananas, I thought it was really tasty! Plus, I get my choline and more protein from the egg, too!
I’m trying out Google Docs. Here is the recipe in printable form.
Protein Packed Oatmeal
1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1 cup water
add ins: brown sugar, bananas, maple syrup, milk, fresh fruit, dried fruit, nuts, etc.
1. Add your oats and water to a pot and bring to a boil. Stir often so the oats don’t burn at the bottom.
2. Cook for about 3 minutes and it will get thicker.
3. Now, temper your egg first before putting a cold egg into a hot pot. Or you’ll end up with scrambled eggs. So, scramble your egg in a bowl. Add a little of the hot oatmeal mixture into the egg and mix. Add some more hot oatmeal mixture and mix it into the egg. Do this a third time.
4. Now put all that egg and oatmeal into the hot pot. Stir and simmer for 5 minutes.
Now you can have your protein and whole grains!
Perfect timing! I was just thinking about how to go about making this exact thing. I love eggs and oatmeal for breakfast.

Me too! I was trying to figure out how to get out of cooking them separately and not have so many dishes to clean.
i love adding an egg to oatmeal! but i just add the egg to the cold pot with the oats and milk/water/whatever else i’m cooking it with…works perfectly 🙂 glad you tried the google doc idea 🙂
