French Toast Oatmeal

For June, Code Boyfriend and I are going to be eating clean for our 30 day challenge. That means no white sugar, no white flour, and no processed foods.

…While we are in the middle of a move. We’ve had smarter ideas. Try finding something without sugar or flour in it in a fast food place. It’s really hard.

The first thing we did once we moved into the temporary apartment was stock it with meats, fruit, veggies, and whole grains.

For breakfasts, I was planning to have oatmeal. I had left of my spices in Rochester. We only took what would fit in the car, and those didn’t make the cut.

So I bought cinnamon. But that was it in the sweet spice department.

I also knew I had a long day of moving in ahead of me and wanted to make something with a little more protein.

French Toast Oatmeal was born. Now, I doubt I’m the first person to come up with this, but at 6:15, I thought it was a stroke of sheer genius.

The texture is amazing, custard-y and soft. And it kept me full through lunch.

French Toast Oatmeal (Serves 1)

  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
  • 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tablespoon Agave Nectar (sweeten it however you like, this made it sweet enough for me, but I wish I had maple syrup)
  • 1/4 Cup of Quick Cooking Steel Cut Oats
  • 3/4 Cup of Milk (We had skim and it worked great!)

French Toast Oatmeal

Combine all of the ingredients in a pot. Whisk to ensure the egg is throughout incorporated before you turn on the heat. This helps keep this from being scrambled eggs in oatmeal, which really doesn’t sound as good.

French Toast OatmealCook, while stirring frequently, on medium low heat for 8-12 minutes, or until the oats have fully absorbed the liquid.
