A deliciously healthy, high-protein breakfast – it’s completely addictive!


  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup milk, water, or plant-based milk of your choice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 12 eggs
  • additional 1/41/2 cup milk (add more as needed)
  • a generous pinch of salt
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • your favourite toppings, to serve


  1. Optional: For quick-cooking creamy oats, soak them! Mix 1 cup of milk or water with the oats, add the vanilla extract, then cover and leave to soak for a minimum of 30 minutes, up to overnight. If skipping the soak start on step 2, with your oats, vanilla and liquid in a sauce pan, and cook for a little longer to soften the oats.
  2. Place the oats and milk mixture over medium heat with an additional ½ cup of water, until just beginning to thicken, and the oats have softened.
  3. Thoroughly whisk 1-2 eggs with a small amount of milk (¼ to ½ cup), depending on how custardy you want the oats to be, and how much protein you want to include in the breakfast.
  4. Slowly pour the egg and milk mixture into the oats off the heat, otherwise, they will scramble. Return to the heat and slowly stir for about 5 minutes with a spatula or wooden spoon over medium-low heat. If the oats thicken too much, add more milk, water or plant-based milk of choice.
  5. Season with a generous pinch of salt – oats need salt for balance! Also, add 2 tablespoons of honey and toppings to taste. Serve and enjoy!
