Some easy oatmeal recipes for diabetics include the baked pumpkin oatmeal recipe and the oatmeal congee recipe from the American Diabetes Association. The organization lists the calories, carbohydrates, sugar and sodium of both recipes.
To make baked pumpkin oatmeal, mix 2 cups of rolled oats, 1/4 cup of Splenda brown sugar blend, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg in a bowl, recommends the American Diabetes Association. Whisk 1 cup of pureed pumpkin with 1 cup of fat-free milk, 1 beaten egg, 1 tablespoon of canola oil and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Incorporate this mixture into the oat mixture. Pour the combined mixture into a lightly greased 1.5-quart baking dish, and bake it at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.
Make oatmeal congee by combining 1 cup of old-fashioned rolled oats with 4 cups of low-sodium vegetable broth and 1 tablespoon of reduced-sodium soy sauce in a saucepan, advises the American Diabetes Association. Boil the mixture briefly, then allow it to simmer for approximately 10 minutes to soften the oatmeal. Fry 1 cup of sliced mushrooms in a lightly greased pan until the liquid evaporates before splashing in 1 tablespoon of lime juice. When the lime juice evaporates as well, add the mushrooms to the oatmeal. Divide the oatmeal into four bowls. Top each bowl with a fried egg and a sprinkling of chopped scallions and cilantro.
