Try this sweet or savory cake to start your day with a healthy dose of carbs and protein.

Ingredients

1 egg

3 egg whites

40g rolled oats (uncooked)

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.

    For a dessert twist, could you also use flavored whey to boost the protein? I didn’t know if whey works when baking? Thanks!

      I’ll ask, but in my limited experience whey tends to dry out baked goods too much. Perhaps others have had better luck though!
