Creamy Maple and "Brown Sugar" Oatmeal
THM:E, low fat, sugar free, gluten/nut free
Serves: 1
  • ½ cup old-fashioned oats (use gluten free if necessary)
  • 1½ cups of water
  • ⅓ cup carton egg whites
  • Rounded ⅛ tsp. salt
  • 3-4 doonks THM Pure Stevia Extract Powder (a doonk is 1/32 tsp.), to taste, adding more if desired
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. Grandma's molasses (friendly to most allergies, but check the label)
  • ½ tsp. maple flavoring
  • A little unsweetened almond milk (or a small amount of skim milk, for a nut free option) and/or chopped apple for topping, optional
  1. Microwave the oats and water in a large microwave-safe bowl for 4 minutes (I use a serving bowl so it doesn't boil over). Whisk the egg whites into the hot oatmeal, adding the egg whites while whisking so they don't create scrambled eggs in your oatmeal. Add the other ingredients and stir. Taste and adjust as necessary, adding more sweetener or flavoring if you like. Top with the optional toppings if desired and enjoy!
You can omit the egg whites if you like; if doing this, use only 1 cup of water.
