You will hardly surprise anyone by stating that you eat oatmeal for breakfast. Oatmeal is a very common food made of rolled, chopped (steel-cut), or instant whole oat kernels that are called oat groats. Oatmeal is often cooked with hot water or milk, sometimes with extra ingredients like sweeteners, fruit, nuts, berries, seeds, and Greek yogurt and has a low to medium glycemic index of 55, which means that oatmeal is not very likely to cause blood sugar spikes in people with diabetes unless you choose instant oatmeal, which is loaded with added sugar. Relatively low GI score makes oatmeal a great alternative to other common breakfast choices, like cereal with added sugar and pancakes or breads with sweet toppings.

Oatmeal is very rich on fiber. In particular, a specific type of fiber named beta-glucan that oats contain helps lowering blood sugar levels and also makes you feel full after meal for longer period of time, helping you manage your weight. Besides, high content of fiber in oatmeal can lower cholesterol, which is great for your heart.

Another benefit of oatmeal is that it’s not only good as a breakfast meal. In fact, you can make many delicious dishes with it. – Oatmeal can be ground into flour and used to bake very tasty desserts, including pancakes, cakes, cookies, and even smoothies! Here are a few recipes made with oatmeal that we love.

Cottage Cheese and Oatmeal Cookies with Raisins

Diabetic-friendly cottage cheese cookies with raisins is a light and healthy and delicious dessert that will appeal to everyone who suffers from diabetes.
