My New Favorite Breakfast


scrambled oatmeal 
Scrambled Oatmeal
2 eggs (the recipe calls for 1 egg and 2 egg whites)
1/2 cup rolled oats
olive oil (enough to keep from sticking)
I cooked this in my smallest cast iron skillet and I sprinkle with cinnamon (cinnamon has properties that naturally work to help lower glucose levels)
It comes out kind of dry so, I top with a pat of butter and drizzle about 1 1/2 tsp of honey on top; and I eat it like a pancake!

My friend Angel gave me this recipe she found it here @ Spark People ; They call it 'EGG -n- Oats' it’s listed under Just for kids…I tell ya- this kid loves it! 

Their serving suggestions were with cayenne and hot sauce. But as I’ve cut out most sweets now—I went with organic local honey and today I added raisins. Other fruit whatever you have on hand would also be good. (not canned in syrup though—fresh or frozen will do) 

Let me know if you try this and how you liked it; or how you prepared it for your tastes!

This sure is different sounding. I've been cutting back on sugar too.
It's not been easy!

I may make the family oatcakes for breakfast tomorrow. That looks good.

I made this for breakfast this morning...used 1 egg, a quarter cup of oatmeal,and added the cinnamon into the mix...next time I will add a dash of salt as it seemed bland before adding the butter and the organic syrup on top...( I don't have diabetic issues) but try to keep things as low carb as can. I really think I will enjoy this as a new breakfast as it is filling and very satisfying...
I sent this to my daughter, as she has Type 2 diabetes. Thanks for the recipe!

I've never heard of this! I had to look up recipes right away. I found one that mixes cottage cheese in, and one that has banana in it! I am always looking for ways to get my kids to eat oatmeal! And , to get as much protein in them! I did learn during my time with gestational diabetes to focus on protein and fiber. I also learned that having diabetes stinks! Do you think I've done well getting healthier and losing weight? Nope. You have definitely given me a swift kick in the tush to get healthier!! Thanks for the great recipe!

I tried it this morning - 2 eggs & half a cup of oat bran instead of oats. I added some coarse sea salt and fried it in coconut oil. It was very filling and tasty - bread like. I didn't add the cinnamon today, just the salt. I could see this being a nice breakfast with a variety of options to change up the flavor. I'll definitely make it again. I thought of making several and freezing them for quick grab things to take to work...it could really be any meal. Thanks for sharing this, Pat. :)
