Clean Eat Recipe: Hearty Oats | He and She Eat Clean 

This is another one of those where I have a hard time calling it a "recipe" but it's something that we actually accidentally made and loved it. It's super easy...you just add cottage cheese to your oats! It doesn't sound that great but it is delicious.

Looking for other ways to use/love cottage cheese? Try it in your scrambled eggs, make zucchini lasagna, or pasta/alfredo sauce (yes, really!) with it. Don't knock it until you try it!

Clean Eat Recipe: Hearty Oats


  • 1/2 cup gluten free quick cooking oats

  • 1/8 tsp pure vanilla extract (avoid HFCS)
  • sweetener of your choice (we use stevia)
  • cinnamon, to taste
  • sea salt, just a sprinkle (may not be necessary if your cottage cheese has salt in it)
