I don't like the sugar in the Quaker instant packets, so I use a couple of tablespoons of large flake oats and about one tablespoon of oat bran which makes a good sized individual serving. I add a couple of tablespoons of cottage cheese for protein and cook it ( with water )in the microwave (you have to be diligent and let it bubble up..but not over....a couple of times...about 2 minutes).My downfall is that I love it with a little bit of butter ( ouch!) and a bit of maple syrup. The oat bran makes this serving go a long way! Good luck.
My son loves oatmeal. This is how I prepare it. fill bowl 1/3 full with old fashioned oats, add milk until oats are covered, sprinkle in some ground flax seed for fiber, microwave for about 3 minutes. Add more milk if needed, sweeten with agave syrup.
I like the Quaker Oats High Fiber Instant Oatmeal. But I would like it better without so much salt and a lot less sweet. There are many recipes on the internet for making your own instant oatmeal. I took those recipes (1/4 c oatmeal, 1/8 c oatmeal blended to powder, and then the additions of raisins, cinnamon etc) and added a half serving of oat bran cereal. The recipe nutrition ends up with half the fiber, more calories, less vitamins. Does anyone have a recipe for make your own high fiber instant oatmeal?
