Its no secret that oatmeal for breakfast is good for you. But eating bowl after bowl of regular rolled oats can get a little dullz. Enter: the oatbran parfait!
Oatbran has all the same benefits as oatmeal but with a little extra fibre and a much creamier end result. I cook it up with 1/2 water, 1/2 almond milk and egg whites and it always ends up fluffy and delicious. Then I layer it in a tall glass with berries (fresh strawberries are my fave), creamy greek yogurt, flaxseeds, nuts, granola or crunchy cereal for a tasty twist on the classic bowl of oats.
Basic Oatbran Parfait:
- 1/3 cup oatbran
- 1/2 cup almond milk (or preferred milk)
- 1/2 cup water (or more…I usually end up adding extra as the oatbran thickens)
- 1/3 cup egg whites (about 2 egg whites) OR Vegan Option: 1.5 tbsp ground flax mixed with 5 tbsp water
- sweetener (optional)
- vanilla (optional)
