Does anybody have any creative oatmeal recipe ideas that does NOT involve sugar or flour? Meaning no oatmeal cookies, bars or bread. I want to start incorporating oatmeal in our daily diet but plain oatmeal for breakfast gets kind of boring.

Ad

I would like to stay away from sugar and refined white flour if at all possible since that defeats the purpose of trying to be healthy. I would be willing to use a little honey, fruit preserve or Splenda to sweeten it if necessary. Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. To the wonderful person (I forgot who) who posted the tip on Thrifty some time back on putting fruit preserves in oatmeal to sweeten it, thank you! It was a wonderful idea.

Editor's Note: I believe the tip you are referring to is here: Sweeten Oatmeal With Jam

Oatmeal pancakes or waffles. So good!

Blend:

1/2 cup oatmeal

1/4 cup low fat cottage cheese

2 eggs

dash of nutmeg, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla extract

This is a great recipe You've got to try it, and if you don't like cottage cheese don't worry, you can't taste it. It's all smoothed in the blender too. Add extras if you want like banana, blueberries, sometimes I put in chocolate chips and that is great too. Hope you enjoy!

This recipe is from Elle Krieger

1/2 cup old fashioned oats

1 cup water

1 pinch of salt (optional)

1/8-1/4 cup of dried cherries (you can use any other dried fruit, but just make sure you get similar sugar free jam)

2 tbs Sugar Free berry preserves

2 tsp Vanilla Extract

Just cook the oats as directed on container with dried fruit. Add salt if desired. Then when oats are done cooking, turn off heat and add the jam and vanilla extract. Stir a few times to combine and then serve.

I have this for breakfast everyday and it's delicious! it's sweet so you don't feel deprived, but also so good for you. It's the perfect way to start off the day.

I tried making oatmeal the other night, using chicken broth. I added some cooked mushrooms and a little diced cooked chicken. It seemed a little odd, thinking about it, but it was really good. I'd like to try it with the steel cut oats, as opposed to the rolled oats. Oatmeal isn't something people think of, other than as a breakfast cereal, but really, it's just a neutral grain. You can do anything you want with it.

Banana Oatmeal Fingers are a great breakfast or snack for babies and toddlers. I make these for my 10 month old son and he loves them.

Banana Oatmeal Fingers

Approximate Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 1

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 banana

Steps:

  1. Cut banana into quarters then slice.
  2. In a sauce pan, stir oats into water and bring to a boil. Bringing the oats to a boil with that water rather than adding the oats once the water boils will make a creamier oatmeal. Lower heat to medium low a cook for about 5 minutes.
  3. Banana Oatmeal Fingers
  4. Stir in banana and remove from heat.
  5. Banana Oatmeal Fingers
  6. In a microwave safe, flat bottomed bowl, spread the oat mixture in a 1/4 inch thick layer. Make sure to press the mixture down a bit to make sure it will come out in one piece once cooked.
  7. Banana Oatmeal FingersBanana Oatmeal Fingers
  8. Place in the microwave on high for 3 minutes.
  9. Banana Oatmeal Fingers
  10. Carefully remove the oatmeal pancake from the bottom of the bowl and cut into thin slices so that is is easy for your child to pick up and eat. If it is still mushy, cook for another minute until a pancake has formed.

I know I have read a recipe for baked oatmeal in the newsletter, but now I can't find it. I have been given 2 very large boxes of original oatmeal. The type that takes a while to cook. I figured if I could find the recipe for baked oatmeal that would be a way to use it. Any other ideas for recipes using oatmeal would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance,
Sandy

Triple-Healthy Salmon Patties

Take a large can of salmon and with fingers pulverize the bones. Chop the skin fine or discard it.

Add:

1/2 c oatmeal

1 egg

dash pepper

2-6 T of chopped onion (to taste)

dash of milk

dash of lemon juice if you have it

Form into patties and fry in olive oil till browned. Cheap olive oil has less flavor so is best for this.

Mashed Potato Oatmeal

I sneak oatmeal into the family food, anyway I can, and they never know it.

Put 1 cup dried oatmeal into mixing bowl.

Put 1 cup warm water over oatmeal. Stir and set aside.

Boil potatoes as usual for mashed potatoes.

While boiling, heat, low fat evaporated milk, butter, and salt in microwave, until butter melts.

Drain potatoes and start mashing, while alternating small amounts of microwaved mixture and oatmeal water mixture, until you get the consistency you want.

I throw in a couple globs of the oatmeal mush too. They will never know, this doesn't change the flavor or the texture at all.

There are so many small dry oatmeal mixes, like those with dates and nuts, that I would love to use for baking bread or cookies. Does anyone have such a recipe or experience in using such breakfast food, other than as a cereal?

    I am a very experienced baker but have not used the packets for baking, etc., however, out of curiosity, I checked the ingredients of the Quaker Oats single servings. Each type has the basics of cereal, minimal fruit and added vitamins and they also have other ingredients like guar gum, calcium carbonate (chalk), salt (amount not stated), etc. Also, the amount of fruit in the packets is rather low as it is added mostly for minimal flavor.

    I would rather use a bread, etc., recipe where I control the ingredients.

    Are you talking about those microwave packets?

    They are highly processed and not a substitute for rolled oats in a recipe.

    You could try adding them to a quick bread, muffin or cookie recipe. Remove an equivalent amount of plain flour to get the right consistency of batter.

    Well I haven't done it for a long time. But my mom use to take it and add a little brown sugar, cinnamon and then make patties and fry them in a little lard. That was back in the 40's. So crisco would do for frying now. Made a desert for us.

    Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Bring the water to a boil and pour it over the oats. Let the oats stand for 20 minutes. Mix the brown sugar, granulated sugar, shortening, eggs, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and flour together and add the oat mixture.

    I am going to see my mother-in-law who lives in a nursing home in Indiana at the end of May, first of June and I am wanting to make a nice snack for the residents using oatmeal. I usually try to take some sort of a snack for the residents when we visit. I try to make it somewhat healthy being that so many have dietary limitations, but does not necessarily have to be every time we go. They do so enjoy homemade goodies as they do not get them often. We do travel several hours in a vehicle and we stay at a hotel so it can not require refrigeration. Thank you for any ideas and suggestions.

    This site has a great oatmeal cookie that I use to send to the troops at the front. I would send care packages once a month and these were a favorite. I would use chopped up raisins or cranraisins instead of chips (they don't do well in warm weather). They were still soft by the time they got there. Adding some chopped walnuts works too.

    These taste good, have no items that are "unhealthy" and travel well.

    1 c oatmeal

    2 ripe bananas, mashed

    hand full of your choice - chocolate chips, raisins, dried cranberries (craisins) or chopped nuts.

    Mash bananas and oatmeal together. Add your choice (for patients I would avoid nuts in case of nut allergies also they are hard to chew).

    Drop by spoonful on to greased baking sheet (or roll into balls and press). These do not expand - what you put down is what you get.

    Bake at 350 degrees for 15 min.

    Makes 18. (Very easy to double or triple the recipe.)

    These are very moist and healthy. No salt or baking soda for people with sodium restrictions. No eggs for people with egg allergies. No flour for people who have gluten allergies. Plenty of potasium and fiber.

    For travel I just separate layers with wax paper.

    My family strongly dislikes the packets of instant oatmeal I thought they would enjoy. I have more than half of a box left (and six others I purchased at 50 cents each left over). Any ideas on what I can do with the oatmeal? Can I make cookies out of instant oatmeal? Add to muffin mix? I might be giving these away to the needy if we can't come up with a plan to use these! Thanks so much!

    I JUST MADE UP MY OWN RECIPE FOR USING INSTANT OATMEAL FOR COOKIES...THEY CAME OUT AWESOME! I USED 4-5 PACKS OF CINNAMON, APPLE CINNAMON AND MAPLE SUGAR FLAVORS, 2 EGGS, A 1/4 CUP OF MELTED BUTTER, ABOUT A CUP OF RAISINS, A FEW DROP OF VANILLA EXTRACT AND ENOUGH MILK TO MOISTEN IT ALL. I BAKED THEM FOR 15-MIN (BUT WATCHED THEM CLOSELY) IN A 375 DEGREE OVEN. THEY CAME OUT REALLY NICE.

    I am trying to figure out a good recipe for a large batch (half of a Costco-sized box) of instant oatmeal packets. I'm thinking cookies, bread, muffins, etc. Can you throw instant oatmeal into savory dishes like beef stew if it is plain instead of barley or the like? All suggestions/recipes appreciated. Thanks!

    What is the difference between quick cooking oatmeal and old fashioned rolled oats? All of my recipes for oatmeal cookies say to use "quick cooking" oatmeal and all I have is a huge box of old-fashioned rolled oats, can I use that instead?

    I use old fashioned oats all the time in my cookies, just as they come in the box, no need to chop or blend if you like the hardiness ...

    I like the crispiness of them better.

    It was made possible by pre-cooking in manufacture after the oat grain had been split and rolled.
