The lazy girl’s version of N’oatmeal! This microwave blueberry n’oatmeal is a grain free and Paleo breakfast bowl that’s high in protein and low in sugar. All that stands in between you and this bowl of goodness is 5 ingredients, 5 minutes, and a microwave.
I’m super excited to share this recipe with you! Do you ever feel like you get in a bit of breakfast rut? Man, I do! Maybe rut is the wrong word. I definitely get stuck in breakfast phases. There was the vegan overnight protein oats phase of last spring, the smoothie bowl phase of last summer (when I took my blender on vacation with me!!), and of course my love of single serving pancakes, which we have every weekend!
Well, even I need a change every once and a while. I used to be a big fan of n’oatmeal back in my Paleo days, but I always made it on the stove. Well, a combination of laziness, AKA not wanting to wash extra dishes, busy mornings, and having a toddler lead me to do some recipe tweaking. I knew that I wanted to keep the recipe mostly the same, but with a few simple changes. So, the lazy-girl’s blueberry n’oatmeal was born!
I mean, look at that texture! The eggwhites cook up so nice and fluffay. And when you add flax seeds to the mix, it provides the perfect amount of chewiness with a nice nutty flavor. Perfection!
I’ve come to realize that I need a decent amount of protein to power me through my mornings, especially on days that I teach BODYPUMP, and this recipe certainly fits the bill. It has a whopping 20 grams of protein!! And, thanks to the banana, it has just the right amount of sweetness. It has fast become my favorite breakfast.
- 1 banana, mashed
- 2/3 cup egg whites
- 1-2 TBSP flax seeds, milled
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- Toppings: walnuts, coconut, nut butter, etc.
- Mash banana in a deep cereal bowl with a fork.
- Add flax seeds, egg whites, and almond milk.
- Mix well.
- Microwave on high for 3 minutes, stirring after each minute*
- Stir in blueberries.
- Top as desired.
- Eat and enjoy!
- *I microwave it for 1 minute at a time, stir, and repeat until egg whites are fully cooked and the consistency is porridge/oatmeal-like.
