Compliments of Diana Dyer, MS, RD

Janet's Best Oatmeal in the World


  • 1 serving oatmeal (preferrably steel-cut, see note below), cooked
  • 1 apple
  • 1/4 cup unflavored low-fat yogurt
  • 1/4 cup soy protein powder
  • 1 Tbs. flaxseed oil
  • 1 tsp. or more (to taste) grated lemon and/or orange peel
  • 1 handful each, any or all of the following: strawberries, blueberries, almonds, pecans, raspberries, bananas


  • Core apple and puree in blender. Add and blend in yogurt, soy protein powder, and flaxseed oil. Stir in lemon and/or orange zest.
  • Top with any or all of the remianing ingredients.

According to Janet, this tastes almost like a fruity dessert!

Steel-cut oats or Scotch oats or Irish oatmeal are all names for groats that have been cut into 2 to 3 pices and not rolled. They take considerably longer to cook than rolled oats (follow directions on the box) and have a decidely chewy texture.
