Drink your Oats! 2 more variations of Warm Cream of Oat Pudding

More porridgey pudding goodness! And this time with varying protein sources! You can vary the consistency of your pudding based on your "splash" of milk. If you want to eat with a spoon more like pudding then go with 1-2 Tbsp. If you want to drinkable oatmeal, go for about 1/4 cup.

Please note that I realize I am the blogosphere WORST food photographer. These taste WAY better than my photos! (And yes, this is my really trying to take nice photos! With the tools I have at hand: no natural light, my point and shoot camera and positively no http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifphotography skills.)

Don't miss the original Chocolate Peanut Butter recipe here.

Maple Pecan Cream of Oat Pudding (with egg whites)

1/3 cup oats (either quick or old fashioned, nutritionally they are exactly the same)
1 1/3 cup water
2-3 egg whites
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1 Tbsp chopped pecans
a splash of skim milk

The night before:
Combine oats and water in a bowl and microwave for 1 minute, then stick it in the fridge overnight so the oats soak up the water.

At breakfast:
Take out your bowl of oats and microwave for 2 minutes until the oats get creamy and gloppy, then quickly stir in the egg whites and microwave for another minute. Plop into blender along with the rest of the ingredients and blend smooth. Serve warm in a mug or bowl, you're choice!

I left out the stevia because the maple syrup is already sweet enough.

Cinn-a-Spice Cream of Oat Pudding

1/3 cup oats (either quick or old fashioned, nutritionally they are exactly the same)
1 1/3 cup water
1/3 package silken tofu (4 ounces of firm, soft, whatever you have on hand)
1 tsp cinnamon (I like this roasted cinnamon)
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp MoreFiber Stevia Baking Blend (or 6-8 drops of liquid stevia)
a splash of skim milk**

The night before:
Combine oats and water in a bowl and microwave for 1 minute, then stick it in the fridge overnight so the oats soak up the water.

At breakfast:
Take out your bowl of oats and microwave for 2-3 minutes until the oats get creamy and gloppy. Plop into blender along with the rest of the ingredients and blend smooth. Serve warm in a mug or bowl, you're choice!


** Replace the milk with water and this one is Vegan Cream of Oat Pudding.
