This is delish. Tweaked the recipe using quick oats and came out great. I was wondering if I could use anything else besides the egg whites?

How could I make this on the stovetop? I don’t like to use the microwave if I don’t need to.

I made this recipe this morning for breakfast :) It was scrumptious. Just wondering on the nutrion info: wouldn’t using skim milk as opposed to almond milk or water make the dish have MORE protein as well?

Made this for breakfast today. OMG delicious! I love how the egg whites make it so creamy! Next time I might add a little crunchy peanut butter too.

What is the difference between old fashion and steel cut. My diet book always calls for steel cut. Sounds like from other posts I cannot substitute

Is there a vegan option without the eggwhites? This sounds divine and I’d love to try it!
