I picked up some organic oats and some of your favorite mighty maple….can I just say DELICIOUS?!?! I have them for breakfast at work almost every day. Only…when I’m here I’m forced to have my instant oats. Not the same, but delicious! mmmmmmm :)

Wondering why the egg white? Is it just for more protein or does it add to or change the consistency? What if I left it out? (I can’t leave well-enough alone!) Thanks.

I’m pretty much hooked on these! And I love how versatile they are. I can add just about anything I have in my pantry to change up the flavor. But I do have to use the instant oats, since I am on limited time in the am. One of these weekends I’ll have to try out the slow and low method.

I have been a silent reader for the past few months now, but I thought I needed to speak up about this recipe! This is hands down my new favorite breakfast & the best part about it, it keeps you feeling full for a long time! :)

I combined the protein powder and oats and then cooked them together – the powder totally curdled. Ick. I knew you’d have a better tip… off to make my protein oats the right way :)

OH NO! yeah, you cannot cook the powder or it curdles and gets all rubbery. yuck.

I made these this morning and they were pretty tasty! Although, I think next time I need to add some stevia, they tasted kinda eggy. For my protein powder I used EAS 100% Whey Vanilla. I wish I could use the EAS premium. The stats are a bit better, and it sounds like it tastes better. Do they make it anymore? If not, what protein powder do you use now? Thanks, Janetha! :D
