I’ve always loved oatmeal, but let me tell you – I ADORE egg white oatmeal. It’s one of my favorite sneaky ways to add extra protein to my breakfast.
This Egg White Oatmeal recipe is super simple to make, and will quickly become one of your favorite breakfasts.
Made with only a few ingredients like oats, egg whites, almond milk and your favorite toppings – it’s simple and tasty!
For me, oats are the ultimate comfort food. They’re warm, cozy, and so filling. Especially when you pile them high with tons of toppings or fresh fruit!
The only downside to oatmeal is that it’s a total carb overload. Now, don’t get me wrong – carbs are great, but in order to keep you feeling full and have a complete meal – you need protein and healthy fats to go with them!
That’s why I love this oatmeal with egg whites!
Things you’ll need to make Egg White Oatmeal:
How to make egg white oatmeal
It’s not hard to add egg whites in your oatmeal, but the key is in the timing. You don’t want to over cook the egg whites because they will get rubbery.
Your egg white oatmeal should look fluffy and you shouldn’t be able to tell there are eggs in it!
Why should you add egg whites to oatmeal?
- Added protein – Adding egg whites in your oatmeal can add an extra 10-20g of protein depending on the amount that you add! This recipe calls for 1/4 cup, but I have added up to 1/2 cup of egg whites to my oatmeal and it’s still been delicious! Since oatmeal is typically a carb heavy meal, this helps to make it a more balanced meal.
- Added fluffiness – Adding egg whites to your oatmeal helps it be more ‘fluffy’ and dense!
- No taste– Egg whites don’t taste like anything, so why not add them!?
Tips for making Egg White Oatmeal:
- Make sure you stir the oatmeal consistently when you pour in the egg whites. If you don’t stir the egg whites, they will cook up unevenly and you’ll wind up with oats and scrambled egg whites.. I promise you don’t want this!
- Load up on the toppings! The honey, cinnamon and ginger definitely add flavor – but fresh fruit and nut butters make this egg white oatmeal so much better!

Egg White Oatmeal
- Heat 3/4 cup almond milk in pan. Once almond milk is boiling, add in oats and cook on medium heat for 8-10 minutes until almost all of the milk is absorbed.
- Once all of the almond milk is just about absorbed in oatmeal, stir in egg whites, cinnamon, ginger + honey and remaining 1/4 cup almond milk.
- Stir constantly for 2 minutes over medium heat until everything is combined and egg whites have cooked. The oatmeal should be smooth and pull away from the pan when stirring.
- Serve with nut butter or fresh berries of your choice!
