Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 1-2
Ingredients
  • ½ cup large flake oats
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 egg
  • Berries (Fresh or frozen)
  • 2 tbsp white chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tsp natural peanut butter
Instructions
  1. In a medium-sized pot, over medium-high heat, add the large flake oats and water. Stir together. Bring to a boil. Turn heat down and allow to simmer for 5 minutes.
  2. Crack the egg right into the oatmeal and stir right away with a fork to evenly distribute the egg. Cook another 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Top oatmeal with berries and white chocolate chips. In the version showed here, I also added in chia seeds and peanut butter for extra flavour and nutrition.

    Is the recipe for White chocolate berry power oatmeal okay for someone with Type 2 diabetes? Sure looks good. And can steel cut oats be used? Your information on getting enough protein is excellent and answers a lot of questions I have had about protein. Thanks in advance for your answer.

      Hello Doris, you can use steel cut oats – you just need to cook them a little longer. When managing Type 2 diabetes, everything here fits within that plan; the sprinkling of white chocolate chips is optional. As you know, they are a source of additional sugar without fiber. They will add into the taste of this bowl. When managing blood sugars, you’ll want to be mindful of how much added sugars you are using in your diet.
