Oat-free “Oatmeal”

Oatmeal is delicious, especially with some good toppings on it!
 
But it isn’t necessarily the healthiest breakfast option….
 
It’s heavy on carbs, with not much to offer in terms of protein and micronutrients. And those instant oatmeal packets are even worse, with tons of added sugar and artificial flavors.
 
This recipe is an awesome alternative! It maintains the taste and texture of oatmeal while adding in some extra protein and vitamins. 

 

Cauliflower is such a versatile veggie 😉

Ingredients

2 cups frozen, riced cauliflower
1 & 1/2 small bananas (ripe)
1/3 cup egg whites
1/3 cup almond milk
2 tbsp almond butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Directions

Mash the bananas and almond butter together with a fork until smooth.

If the riced cauliflower is frozen, prepare it using the instructions on the package and wring out the excess water.

Stir together (in a microwavable bowl) the cauliflower and the banana/almond butter mix until combined.

Stir in the remaining ingredients, then microwave the mixture for 3 minutes. Remove the bowl from the microwave and stir a few times.

Add any of your favorite oatmeal toppings (chocolate chips, coconut flakes, nuts, etc.). Enjoy!
