 As an alternative, you can replace an egg white by adding a whole egg, or two, to the mix and/or leave out the berries for a more savory taste. Add pepper or cumin and a little salt for flavor.

Often people ask two questions. One is 'What should I eat for breakfast?' and the other is ' What should I eat before working out?'

This recipe is perfect for both!

We are calling it a frittata. But some refer to this as a crepe, or even a pancake. By any name, it is a delicious blend of complex carbohydrates and protein. This combination is an important mix to give your body the energy (fuel) it needs to start your day and/or to complete workout. It can be eaten hot or cold....just toss this into a baggie, in your lunchbox, to eat about 25 minutes prior to a workout.

As listed in the recipe, how well you choose to blend the 'batter' before cooking affects the consistency of the outcome. It's all delicious!  You can also add different ingredients to change the taste, like cocoa powder.

To make this into a savory meal, leave out the berries, and change up the spices!

Give this a try and let us know below what you think. Do you have some variation ideas to share? Do so in the comments!

 RECIPE

4 egg whites

1/2 c of whole rolled oats (Quaker Oats - Old Fashioned)

1/2 c washed berries (3.5 - 4 oz) [strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, etc]

cinnamon

1-2 tsp coconut oil

**********

Directions:

For best consistency and fluffiness, place egg whites, oats, berries and cinnamon in a small food processor and blend.

As an alternative, you can just use an emersion blender in a tall bowl, or even stir together ingredients by hand. Each method results in a different consistency.

Melt coconut oil in a nonstick pan at just below medium heat. Pour mixture into pan. Lift up edge slightly to check for a golden brown color. Flip. Let cook until that side is also golden.

Eat up!

You can make these up ahead of time and keep refrigerated.

Remember that this recipe eats well hot or cold!
