Green Eggs and Oats

 

Not to be confused with this.

Although, I do wonder what his green eggs were all about. Did he know how fabulous spinach eggs were? I better do some research (in all my free time- ha).

 

As a quick side note, I refuse to accept the fact that it’s December 1st. Nope. Not for me. Today at the STUFT house it’s November 31st. We just need an extra day around here. Hope that’s okay.

Anyone else?

I thought so.

 

So in honor of making up an extra day (and not posting anything green for awhile), I had to share my breakfast I’ve been having the last week or so.

 

Our trip to Costco last week was not the best decision I ever made. It wasn’t made any better by the fact that they were out of Kirkland nonfat Greek yogurt. They told me it was something about redoing the packaging. What the?

That seems to happen to me a lot, especially once I depend on a particular product (like broccoli slaw). How was I supposed to make my “go to” yo-oat bowl without that darn yogurt?

Well, I got creative. Lord knows we have a lot of eggs around here (Kirkland cartons only) so I mixed up a little something similar to my big bowl of banana oatmeal.

It may be green.

It may be a little weird.

But….. if you like French toast and oatmeal (and don’t mind the color green), you will love this.

For the not so green at heart, you can also do this without spinach. It just might not be as fun.

Green Eggs and Oats Bowl

1 serving (40 grams) oats of choice (I like Coach’s Oats)

1- 1 1/2 cups water or nondairy milk (or a combination)

1/2 cup egg substitute

handful of fresh spinach (optional)

cinnamon to taste

sweetener of choice (I use 1-2 stevia or Splenda packets)

vanilla or almond extract to taste (about 1/2 teaspoon)

 

Prepare oats on the stove as directed. Adding extra liquid (like the yo-oat bowl) if desired.

Blend together egg substitute and spinach. (I use the Magic Bullet.)

After oatmeal has cooked, add in egg substitute mixture, sweetener, cinnamon and vanilla.

Continue to cook until eggs are cooked thoroughly.

Scoop into cute, festive bowl.

 

What you get as the end result is a giant bowl of protein packed, French toast tasting oats.

They are marvelous.

I like to top mine with mixed berries (defrosted frozen berries from Costco) or cherries, a tablespoon of SunButter and a little sugar free syrup.

I promise they are good.

They can be better with a STUFT Salted Caramel Mocha.

They can also be better in an almost empty jar of nut butter.

And with some great mean green French toast eating company.

Oh I love these guys!

They double dog dare you to try this by the way.

And to enter the Spicing Things Up Again giveaway which is open until Sunday, December 4th.

(I bet that Berries and Heat Sauce would be good on this.)

 

Oh, and I ordered some Torani syrups today from their website after I saw the following post on their Facebook page.

I have no affiliation with the company, I just love their sugar free syrups.

I am so ready to make fun drinks in the comfort of my own home. Now if I only had a Keurig……..

Ha ha! Wishful Thinking.

Have a great day!

Back with some workout talk tomorrow.

    While my oat have been green before (zucchini bread oatmeal = winner), I’ve never worked spinach into them. It’s what’s for breakfast tomorrow though! :)

    I must admit…they’re not the prettiest things to look at, but I must try Green Eggs and Oats. (I’ve been trying for 2 minutes to think of something witty to rhyme oats with..nothings comin’).

    I’m in love with all of your green creations! Maybe they’re not the uhh prettiest to look at, but they sure do sound healthy. I’m all about packing in greens as much as I can! ;) And currently I’m obsessed with all of your microwaveable mighty muffins! Now I need to try this….

      Ashley- I know, totally not the prettiest, but so delicious and love that I can feed these things to the boys too! They love their greens! :) The color grows on you.

    Green Eggs & Oats, how Christmasy topped with those red berries! :) And thanks for the heads-up on the Torani sale, I at least have to go look now.

    The great thing about weird food colors is if you start them out when they’re young, they’ll never know any different. I for one think your breakfast bowl looks great!

  6. 6

    I love your green eggs and oats! They are almost too pretty eat! The colors are so rich and bright!

  7. 7

    I just got to the perfect amount in my Mighty Maple jar to enjoy some OIAJ! I love the idea of the french toastiness effect by adding the egg!

    Okay – I am game to try it – but can you do a savory version too? I am not big into the sweet breakfasts. Love the picture of the littles eating some at the end!

    The green is a bit…odd. Sorry! Ha! But I agree with you that oats and eggs cooked together are amazing and taste a lot like French toast! Especially with some maple syrup. So good!

    I’m with you! November 31st it is! I’m very certain I could eat with you…well not the creamy pasta (for your safety and mine), but most of your eats are so up my alley! I had a quinoa parfait tonight with coconut greek style yogurt, pineapple and chia seeds tonight…it was so good! I’m pretty sure you are one of the few people that would appreciate the combination.

    Breathe my friend…we will get through this month!

    I read more Dr. S books the past year or so than I ever thought was possible.

    Your two little men are so precious :)

    Green oats! Imagine trying to serve that to someone other than a healthy eater – lol!! I might just have to try this though as a new way to sneak in some veg. I have been a bit turned off by any and all vegetables with all the holiday/vacation festivities as of late…

    Okay, I might have to order some Torani syrups now! But this question has nothing to do with food. I dig your Jesus. Where did you get that nativity? It is super cool. I want it!

    Oops, that was meant for your post November 31st post!

    Hello! Today I tried the green eggs and oats – it’s yummy! Funnily, the texture of mine still remains “oatmeal-y” (except the color) while yours looks very “toast-y” (looks like it’s big chunks of bread). Do you have any idea why?

    Thanks for all the green creations! I’ve made the STUFT microwave muffin for more than 10 times in the past month and LOVE them!!

      STUFT Mama says:

      Hmm…… I don’t. If I make it on the stove it stays pretty oatmeal-y. If I overcook it (which happens A LOT) it turns a bit more chunky like that because a lot of the liquid gets absorbed. Maybe that’s the key. Ha. Thank YOU for reading the blog!!!!
