For a satisfying breakfast that is packed with nutrition, this hearty Oatmeal Avocado Egg Bowl does the trick. Fiber, protein and heart-healthy fats make this a powerhouse breakfast that will start off your day with a nourishing boost.


  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 cup plain dry oatmeal
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp wheat germ
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
  • 2 tsp Everything Bagel seasoning
  • Fresh basil leaves (optional)


In a saucepan, combine the milk, oatmeal and brown sugar and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until oatmeal is softened. Add wheat germ and stir. Pour the oatmeal into 2 bowls.

Lightly spray a large skillet with non-stick cooking spray and heat over low heat. Crack each egg into a small bowl. Pour the eggs into the skillet, one at a time, making sure they do not touch. Cook for 2 minutes, or until the whites are set. With a spatula, transfer the eggs to the oatmeal bowls. In each bowl, arrange avocado slices. Sprinkle with Everything Bagel seasoning. Garnish with basil leaves, if desired.
