Back in 2014, I first shared this recipe for egg white oatmeal, a naturally sweet and incredibly easy breakfast recipe that tastes amazing. I was an instant hit on the blog and I am so grateful to those of you who have taken the time to leave a review for this recipe (or any of my recipes!) over the years. It helps other people find my recipes and trust them and I am so grateful!
This recipe continues to receive positive reviews and I have to think it’s because of the large, voluminous portion size (perfect if you genuinely enjoy eating!), the simplicity of the dish, the basic ingredient list and, most importantly, the delicious taste!
Here’s everything you need to make it:
- Egg Whites
- Almond Milk (or milk of your choice)
The egg whites in this oatmeal give it a punch of protein I personally appreciate because it makes this dish much more satisfying. A big-time bonus: It actually makes the oats fluffier. They’re light and airy and not nearly as dense as a typical bowl of oatmeal.
Once the oats are ready — after only 3 minutes in the microwave! — it becomes the perfect vehicle for your favorite toppings like drippy peanut butter, fresh berries, nuts or seeds.
Egg White OatmealPrint
A deliciously fluffy and voluminous bowl of egg white oatmeal made with simple ingredients.
- 1/2 cup quick cooking oats (you may use regular oats, but the cooking time will be a little longer)
- 1 ripe banana
- 1/2 cup milk of your choice (I typically use almond milk)
- 3/4 cup liquid egg whites (I use egg whites from a carton to make them easy to measure and pour)
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Peel and mash banana.
- Stir banana and remaining ingredients together in a medium-size bowl, with room at the top so the oats can “grow” in the microwave without overflowing.
- Microwave on high for three minutes, stirring after 75 seconds and then again every 30 to 45 seconds until three minutes are up. (Do not walk away! Keep an eye on the oats to prevent overflowing.)
- Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
Depending on the ripeness of the banana, you may wish for this oatmeal to be a little sweeter. If this is the case, add a drizzle of honey or maple syrup on top, stir it in and then you’ll be good to go!

I hope you all continue to love this recipe as much as I do!
What is your favorite way to prepare oatmeal? Any tips or tricks for making it more filling?
I like to add healthy fats (usually in the for of peanut butter or almond butter) in addition to some kind of punch of protein from egg whites, protein powder or cottage cheese to my oats. That definitely makes them more satisfying!
