Lower carb protein oatmeal recipe

#1
I make a big batch so its in my fridge all the time.

I take 2 cups old fashion oats and soak them in 10 cups of water for up to 48 hours. I just put them covered in the fridge to soak stirring them here and there.

In a glass bowl I microwave the oats /water mixture in 10 minute intervals. I stir them good and keep microwaving until they are thick and creamy. It takes around 60 min in my 700 watt microwave including stirring.

When I'm ready for a bowl I warm them up then add a scoop of vanilla protein isolate, Sometimes I add chunky applesauce and cinn. They are so good and creamy.

I use protein isolate instead of protein powder because the cholesterol is much lower.

Sounds interesting.....did you ever try doing the same in a crock pot? I make apple cinnamon oatmeal in a crock pot, using steel cut oats, then put in containers and freeze. Thaw in refrigerator, and microwave portions when I want it. So easy!

I would love to try that. I could soak them right in the crock pot. How do you do it? TIA Peggy

I'd love to know your method @fox2star too! I tried the slow cooker method once, but the oats were very over cooked and it was very difficult to clean my slow cooker. I had followed the instructions I had found online, but unsuccessfully. :( I've upgraded my slow cooker since then so am ready to try again.

See below. The bottom is a smaller quantity, which I use. I also cut down on the applesauce and only use one apple. Also sub pure maple syrup for the brown sugar.


Slow Cooker Cinnamon Apple Steel Cut Oats

Ingredients: 10 servings

  • cooking spray

  • 8 cups water

  • 23 ounces unsweetened applesauce

  • 1 1/2 cups steel cut oats
  • 2 Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored, and diced

  • 1/4 cup ground cinnamon, or to taste

  • 1/3 cup granular no-calorie sucralose sweetener (such as Splenda(R)) (optional)

    Directions
1. Lightly spray a 5-quart or larger slow cooker crock with cooking spray.

2. Combine water, applesauce, oats, diced apple, cinnamon, and sweetener in prepared slow cooker.

3. Cook on Low for 6 hours.

I scaled it down for my 1 quart slow cooker. I used 1 cup steel cut oats 2 cups water, 20 oz applesauce, 3 small apples, 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp brown sugar. I also added a handful of dried cranberries. Cooked it on Low until desired doneness…test for chewiness. If too hard, add more water and let cook more.

Thank You so much for posting the recipe. I will try it as soon as my current batch runs out!!

I make an uncooked version of this without the egg. Just mix ricotta cheese, sweetener, and cream. Add a tablespoon each of unprocessed bran and flax meal and a few sliced raspberries or strawberries, if you can get away with eating berries. I've become addicted to and it's easy on my blood sugar (I'm diabetic).
