Saturdays and Oats

Saturday mornings are for lounging around and OATS.

What you’ll need:

  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup frozen wild blueberries from Trader Joe’s
  • Handful of sliced almonds
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of apple butter

*Pre diabetics and diabetics: skip the honey and apple butter

  • 1 serving = 1/4 c uncooked oats = 1 CHO exchange = 15 grams CHO

Directions:

  1. Boil water. Add oats. Lower heat. Cook for 7-9 mins. I find that perfect time is 7-8 mins.
  2. Add to bowl then add toppings.
  3. Make some coffee.
