Love oatmeal but need an extra hit of protein in the morning? The secret ingredient in this genius recipe is eggs, which are cooked slowly with the oats to create a creamy, custardy (and protein-rich) wonder.


  • 3 eggs

  • 2 1/2 cups milk, or water

  • 1 cup quick oats

  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup maple syrup

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1/8 tsp salt

  • raspberries

  • blueberries

  • toasted chopped walnuts


  • WHISK eggs with milk and oats in a medium saucepan and set over medium-low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until very creamy, about 15 min. Stir in maple syrup, vanilla and salt.

  • DIVIDE among 4 bowls. Top with fruit and nuts.
