    All of these have a very high amount of sugar, except for the last one. Unfortunately, I am not interested in eating anything chocolate for breakfast. I am on a no added sugar eating plan right now and have come up with an oatmeal that tastes great without any sugar added to it. Can you folks come up with recipes without a lot of sugar added?

    • Tim

      Sheilah after reading these I feel some of the sugar your talking about is coming from the fruit. If you don’t add sugar then try not adding the 1Tbl of honey or brown sugar it calls for and see if its good? I personally put peanutbutter, protein powder, apples and cinnamon in my oatmeal but im going to give these a try

      • Sheilah

        Hi Tim, Thanks for your reply. I am sure some of the sugar is indeed from the fruit, but if there is any added sugar, that is what concerns me. I have no issues eating food with natural sugar, such as those in fruit, because the fiber that accompanies it prevents the insulin surge that added sugars cause. I am like you, in that I add things like bananas, apples, and natural high sugar foods to add sweetness. We all know that oatmeal in and of itself can be a bit on the cardboard flavor side!! I am open to altering any recipe that doesn’t meet my own dietary standards, and I for sure will with these, as well.

    • Kim

      I agree with Sheilah. They are also very high in carbs. For those who have to watch their sugar intake, these recipes are unusable.

      • Sheilah

        Hi Kim, I am a sugar-holic, so am very hyperaware of sugar in recipes. If something is high carbs, as long as it comes from natural sources, I am okay with it, because of fiber that keeps the sugar behavior on the pancreas and resultant insulin secretion under control. I am just learning, so am very novice, at best, when reading labels and ingredients at this point. I will press on though, and hopefully arrive at food choices that are both healthy and tasty. My taste buds are not happy now, in that they are craving sweets, but less and less as time goes on.

      Make chia seed cereal!

      • Sheilah

        Carol, what is chia seed cereal? I am a recovering sugarholic, so go easy on my taste buds here!! 🙂

        • carol lervig

          2 Tbl whole chia seeds black or white
          1 Tbl raw pumpkin seeds
          1 Tbl raw sunflower seeds
          8-10 whole raw almonds
          1-2 Tbl dried cranberries (optional)
          4 oz unsweetened almond milk
          Mix in small container night before or at least 2-4 hrs before eating.
          Best if left overnight. Mix very carefully…will look worse than it tastes.

          If you like chia seeds….great! I eat 5 times a week!

      Just make the recipe minus the added sugar, problem solved.

    • Dorothy

      I never put sugar in my oatmeal. I cook it with 2 tablespoons of raisins, 1/2 tsp of cinnamon , and sometimes 1/3 cup of frozen blueberries. Also, you can add a 1 tablespoon of sliced almonds. I use almond milk, the unsweetened kind with 30 calories. Very good. Dorothy

    • Elaine Jacobson

      I use Bob’s Red Mill oat groats and they are the most whole form of oat (oat kernel) and have most protein and fiber to offset the carbs. I LOVE the texture, also.
