Fruit Custard Oatmeal

Custard oatmeal

Recently, I’ve revised my morning breakfast routine.  Here is my upgraded oatmeal recipe.  The secret ingredient?  An egg, cooked in with the oatmeal, adds a protein boost and creates a custard-like consistency.  Delicious!

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup quick cooking oats
  • 2 Tablespoons ground flaxseed meal
  • 1 ripe banana, sliced
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen fruit, chopped (such as: apples, strawberries, peaches, blueberries, blackberries, or mango)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup low-fat milk or soymilk
  • Dash of cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Microwave until the egg is cooked and the oatmeal is the desired consistency, usually 4-5 minutes on high.

Makes 1 serving.
