I have high cholesterol and want to start eating oatmeal daily, but the instant is not effective in lowering it. Has anyone tried making oatmeal in a large batch and then freezing it in single serving sizes to reheat in the morning?

Use milk instead of water before freezing. Add some Equal or Splenda, sugar substitute. When defrosting in microwave, add a pinch of water. When done you may add cut bananas or raisins, or both.

OR BOTH.

When I saw my doctor about high cholestral. He told me about microwaving oatmeal and he said it is good for you. The recipe is 2/3 cup water, 1/3 cup quick cooking oatmeal and microwave for 3 minutes.

Trader Joe's stores sell frozen single servings of steel cut oats, but they're pretty expensive. I think you can freeze the ones you make, though. You can soak oat groats like people have said, which makes them really really good for you, since it preserves the enzymes that help you digest the food. If you want to use a "healthy" sweetener, I'd recommend stevia or agave nectar, b/c they don't raise glucose levels (contributes to diabetes) and they are low in calories. Stevia's sometimes called "nature's healthy sweetener" or something like that.

After you cook the oatmeal, put individual servings in zip lock bags then freeze. Take em out in the morning and throw one in a boiling pot of water.

Editor's Note: I wouldn't recommend putting plastic bags into a boiling pot of water, unless the bags are made for boiling. Freezing the portions is a good idea but it might be better to put it into a bowl and microwave it to heat it up.
