A few of you asked me to share my pumpkin egg white oatmeal recipe with you after posting quite a few Instagram of this fabulous fall breakfast.  I have to admit, I’ve had the pictures taken for a couple of weeks now, I just needed to block out the time to WRITE everything down for you 🙂

Pumpkin Egg White Oatmeal

This has been a favorite fall breakfast this year, and I can honestly say that I make it once a week (at least!) I use bananas to slightly sweeten the pumpkin and oatmeal without adding refined sugar, but it’s definitely not overly sweet.  I find that if I’m craving something sweeter or if someone likes their oats with more sweetness, adding raisins on top is perfect!

I promise, you cannot taste the egg whites in this breakfast and it will FILL YOU UP!  When I eat this breakfast, I can usually power through until lunch with minimal snackage 🙂  <—always a good thing!  I hope you love this recipe as much as I do!

  1. This looks so creamy. Adding it to my list of pumpkin recipes to try out for breakfast this week. Thanks for sharing, Tara!

  2. I love pumpkin and have been adding it to things this whole month and will HAVE to try this one out soon!

  3. I’ll have to try this! I have tried adding egg whites to oatmeal in the microwave – fail! This looks like a much better bet!

  4. Adding this to my recipe list! I’m an American expat living in the Netherlands, and canned pumpkin basically doesn’t exist over here. Lucky for me, my friend has a care package on the way and I happen to know it has a couple cans of pumpkin in it, so I’m saving this for when it gets here!

    This looks delicious!! What site do you use to figure out the nutritional facts for your recipes? Thanks! 🙂

  6. This sounds perfect! I need help though, what is the best way to save the recipe. Is there another way besides cut&paste?

    • Hi Regina! I like to save recipes like this to Pinterest! 🙂 Hope that helps! OR I use Evernote to compile all the yummy recipes I want to try.
