Pumpkin Oat Bake

 

This recipe is protein packed and perfect to meal prep for the week.ย 

I find these way more filling than regular oats thanks to the addition of pumpkin for fiber and egg whites for protein.ย 

The longer you bake them the thicker and more cake-like they get.ย 

Ingredients:ย 

  • 30 grams oats
  • 45 grams pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup waterย 
  • 160 grams liquid egg whitesย 
  • Cinnamonย 
  • Pure vanilla extractย 
  • Pumpkin pie spiceย 
  • Stevia (optional)ย 

Directions:ย 

Mix together 30 grams of oats, 45 grams of pumpkin and ยผ cup of water and microwave 90 seconds on high.ย 

Stir in your egg whites, cinnamon, vanilla, spices, and stevia if you want it. Microwave on 70% power for 3 and a half minutes.

Transfer to your meal prep container, and microwave once more for about 3 minutes at full power, this is where it will get cakey and thicken up. Let cool completely.

Save for later & tag me if you give them a try.ย
