Breakfast Protein Loaf

If you’re anything like me you rarely have time to sit down for breakfast, much less cook a fresh one each morning.  Here’s an easy, make ahead breakfast recipe that allows you to enjoy a well-rounded meal without any of the morning hassle.  I generally cook these up on Sunday afternoons and throw them into the fridge or freezer so that I can simply grab and go in the morning.  While they taste best warm, they’re still tasty in a pinch both room temperature and cold.

 

Breakfast Protein Loaf

Ingredients:

1 egg

3 egg whites

1/2 C uncooked rolled oats

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

50g blueberries or other optional mix-ins

Preparation:

Preheat oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees.  In a small bowl, beat one egg and 3 egg whites until blended.  Stir in oats and berries.  Pour mixture into a small loaf pan and bake until set, approximately 20-30 minutes (depending on accuracy of oven). Optional mix-ins: Feel free to swap out the blueberries for any fresh fruit you’ve got on hand.  For a dessert twist you can mix in cocoa powder, chocolate chips, nuts or nut butters.  Alternatively, you can also go the savory route and add bacon, cheese and/or onions.  Whatever you choose to do, be sure to alter the nutritional information accordingly if you’re tracking macros or counting Weightwatchers Points.
