French Toast Oatmeal

This is an equally delicious and decadent twist  on the classic french toast breakfast will satisfy any sweet tooth to start the morning off right and is also packed with nutrients from the oats, flax seed, and egg white. Not only is it healthy, but quick and perfect for any busy morning. I topped mine with a roasted banana, but feel free to use any fresh fruit you have on hand or simply leave it plain. 

French Toast Oatmeal: (serves 1)

1/3 cup oats
1/3 milk
2/3 water
1 tablespoon flax seed, ground
sprinkle of salt
1 egg white
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tablespoon maple syrup or agave

Add liquid to small pot over high heat until boiling. Lower heat and add oats. Allow to cook for a few minutes to absorb, about 5 minutes. Add ground flax seed and salt, stir. Once there is only a little liquid left, add egg white to oats, stirring immediately to incorporate throughout oats for about 30 seconds. Let cook for another 2 minutes to completely cook through egg. Add vanilla and cinnamon, stir. Pour oats into a bowl, top with syrup and fresh fruit if desired.
