1large egg OR 1 T ground flaxif you use the ground flax, add an extra 3 T milk
1tablespooncoconut flour or almond flourCan sub for another T rolled oats
1scoop vanilla protein powderoptional but highly recommended
Extra cinnamonfor dusting
In a saucepan or microwave safe bowl, combine the rolled oats, sea salt, cinnamon, sweetener of choice and milk and simmer on medium until most of the liquid is absorbed.
Once thick, add the large egg/ground flax and mix very well until fully mixed in. Add the coconut flour, vanilla protein powder and continue stirring until a very thick batter is formed. Add the extra half cup dairy free milk.
Remove from heat and pour into a bowl. Top with extra cinnamon and granulated sweetener of choice.
* I used coconut palm sugar AND trialled it with a granulated stevia blend- Both worked well. The stevia blend I used didn't have the metallic taste I'd previously tried. ** Depending on the protein powder you use, you may need more milk. Adjust accordingly. These oats can be batch cooked and freeze beautifully.
