If you like chai lattes…
These oats are for you!
The Sugar Free Chai Concentrate can be found in the tea aisle at your grocery store (hopefully!) OR you can always buy them in a 6-pack from amazon. I actually like drinking the concentrate straight on ice or with almond milk, so if you’re worried about not being able to finish a 6-pack you’ll be fine.
I also always use Better Oats packets when I make oatmeal on prep. I haven’t found a lower carb oatmeal packet around & I like that these have flax seed in them so I’m getting a little bit of Omega-3s in my oatmeal. I can usually only find the Brown Sugar Maple kind in stores, but since quarantine started I’ve been buying them ALL on amazon.
You can absolutely use normal, or quick oats (anywhere from 20-60+g should work) but be sure to add spices like cinnamon.
Other Variations of Cauli Oats I have on my blog:
And an Oat recipe without any cauliflower for those of you who are still skeptical.
And for the love of (I don’t know where I was going with this sentence) BUT STOP ADDING PROTEIN POWDER TO YOUR OATS.
I mean, you can if you want, but protein powder dissolves in the oats… OR you could choose to just add more egg whites to make it creamier & bigger (egg whites = more volume!)
The only reason I can see that anyone would add protein powder is for flavor… & spices like cinnamon, pumpkin pie spices, & then things like vanilla extract, caramel extract, & cake batter extract can mimic all the same flavors for 0 extra calories.
Skinny Syrups are also how I sweeten my oats & add flavor!
If you make these oats, I LOVE seeing pictures and videos of recreations on instagram! Tag me @emyogi_fit <3
