If you want a low carb, high protein, overflowing bowl of oats then you have to try egg white cauliflower oatmeal.
Healthy oatmeal is low carb and super voluminous with the help of cauliflower and whipped egg whites. Now, before you freak out…I promise you can barely taste the cauliflower. By swapping out some of the oats for the veggie you get a lower carb meal that is still warm, chewy and comforting. Try it once and you will be a believer, I swear.
I add whipped egg whites to my oats all the time. You end up with a nice and fluffy (not to mention MASSIVE) bowl of food. See my Whipped Eggwhite post for a detailed description with pictures of how to easily whip egg whites like a pro.
Just look at the volume it adds!
Top your mountain of Cauliflower Oatmeal however you like. This bowl has sugar-free maple syrup and sprinkles in the form of pomegranate seeds. But I warn you, It might be difficult to finish this deliciously large portion.
I Challenge you to finish a bowl of Egg White Cauliflower Oatmeal!
Whipped Egg White recipe HERE
- 20 grams rolled oatmeal
- ½ cup water
- 100 grams (1 cup) cauliflower
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon Swerve or your sweetener of choice
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 recipe of 4 egg whites, whipped to stiff peaks (follow link above recipe)
- Toppings of choice
- Fruit, chocolate chips, maple syrup, peanut butter....
- Place oatmeal and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the water is absorbed (about 5 minutes)
- While the oatmeal is cooking, steam your cauliflower. Put cauliflower in a microwave save container with a tablespoon of water. Cover,leaving a vent for steam, and microwave 5 minutes.
- Add cooked oatmeal, steamed cauliflower, salt, cinnamon, sugar and vanilla in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour back into the saucepan that you cooked the oatmeal in.
- Stir ⅓ of whipped egg whites into the oatmeal mixture until well incorporated. (This will fluff up the thick oats and make it easier to fold in the rest of the whites)
- Gently fold in the remaining egg whites. Place your saucepan on the stove and turn the heat to medium. Cook the mixture, gently folding everything together every so often, until the egg whites are cooked. It only takes a few minutes.
- Find a massive bowl, top as you like and dig in.
Whipped Egg Whites: you don't have to whip the egg whites, you can simply whisk regular egg whites into the oatmeal mixture and cook for a denser consistency.
Im linking up with Laura for a WIAW of my eats on Monday. The above oatmeal was my breakfast. After consuming rediculous amounts of mashed potatoes everyday since Thanksgiving, this lower carb meal was needed.
Guys, that oatmeal is so filling that I kind of snacked through lunch. I really wasn’t that hungry but Im not one to skip a meal completely. So I had a couple of the no bake granola bars I made for the looneyforfood newsletter. This recipe went out to all the newsletter subscribers last weekend.

Continting on the low carb and high protein trend was a bowl of Irish Beef Stew that I meal prepped over the weekend. I would normally have this over mashed potatoes but I skipped them this time.
I never skip dessert. I don’t really think of it as dessert, its just my 4th meal of the day. But, since I like to end on a sweet note I call it dessert. Mondays ending meal was a slice of Avengers cake I helped my sister make for her school project.
Questions for you:
Cauliflower Oats, love it or hate it?
Do you have dessert everyday?
How many meals do you generally have in a day?
Do you over carb-a-size over the holiday?
