Creme Brulee Power Oats

creme-brulee-oatmeal

Ingredients

  • 1 cup old fashion rolled oats (gluten free if needed)
  • 3 cups water
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 vanilla beans split and scraped out
  • 2 cups egg whites pasteurized
  • Maple syrup to taste

Topping

  • 8 tsp light brown sugar

Instructions

  1. In a small pot, combine the oats with the water, salt, cinnamon, vanilla bean seeds and the residual vanilla bean pods. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to medium. Stir the pot occasionally until the oats have absorbed almost all of the water but are still very moist and thick- about 3-5 minutes.
  2. In a bowl, beat the egg whites until they froth up, then add them to the pot with the oats. Cook, stirring constantly until the mixture is creamy and fluffs up- about 3 minutes.
  3. Remove the vanilla bean pods, and maple syrup, to taste.
  4. Divide between four bowls and sprinkle with about two teaspoons of brown sugar. Using a blow torch, brulee the top of the oatmeal bowls until caramelized and golden and dig in!
