Homemade Hearty Oatmeal recipe

Looking for a new diabetes breakfast idea? This is the most satisfying Oatmeal recipe you will ever have! This recipe is portioned out for a single serving but can easily be tripled for a quick and easy breakfast menu throughout the week! Although it may sound weird, the egg is the secret ingredient in this recipe! Adding an egg to your oats will pack it with protein and create a creamy consistency. This is great at home or a breakfast on the go.  

Ingrdients: (1 serving)

  •  1/4 (59ml) cup oats (not instant)
  • 3/4 (180 ml) cup water
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 (125 ml) cup blueberries 
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) cup strawberries
  • 1/4 apple
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) almound butter 
  • 1/4 tsp (1.25 ml) cinnamon 
  • pinch of salt 


If strawberries aren’t your jam, try adding bananas or another fruit of your choice! Please note that any changes to the recipe may alter the stated nutritional values.

How to make it: 

  • Add water and oats to a pan and boil until the oats reach a thick consistency (5 min.)
  • While the oats are cooking, cut apple into bite sized pieces, then do the same with the strawberries.
  • After the oats have absorbed most of the water, crack egg into the pot and add a pinch of salt. Make sure to constantly stir your oats once the egg has been added. (Allowing the egg to sit will turn it into scrambled eggs.) Once the egg is fully incorporated, pour cooked oatmeal into a bowl.

  • Add apple bites, strawberries, and blueberries. And top with almond butter and a dusting of cinnamon to your preference.
