“I am hypoglycemic and breakfast is especially important for me. This oatmeal recipe is a slight twist on a common GI recipe that introduces more fiber to your morning and is so easy to make. As a side note; cinnamon has been shown to reduce blood sugar levels and aids in digestion, what an excellent spice to add to breakfast!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a microwave safe bowl, combine the oats, water, flax and cinnamon. If you don't want to make a mess of more dishes, just swirl the ingredients around in the bowl for a couple of seconds instead of stirring to mix them up.
  2. Heat on high for 4 minutes.
  3. After removing, stir in the yogurt and fruit (if desired) and eat! An easy way to change up the recipe is to vary the fruit, yogurt (with other flavours or cottage cheese) and/or spices.
  4. Caution: Old-fashioned rolled oats have a tendency to grow exponentially in the microwave while cooking; be sure to use a bowl at least 3-4 times the size of the ingredients. I use a medium glass saucepan or corning ware dish.
