Faux (Flax) Oatmeal Courtesy of Sherri

Hi ladies, 

As usual, some time has elapsed since my last post. Not to worry- I do get back to it. For those of you who miss your morning oatmeal, Sherri, one of our long time members has the solution for you!  This "oatmeal" has a slightly different texture than the regular, but is still very good and satisfying, especially on a cold morning.

One variation, since I'm a nut freak, is that I threw a handful of pecans in the spice grinder and ground till they were just a tiny bit chunky. I cooked them in the oatmeal and it was really good!  Give this  oatmeal a try!

If you like the flavored oatmeals, try tossing in a little cinnamon. Yum!

Faux Oatmeal - Flax Cereal

3T. of flax meal
3 T. of vanilla protein powder
1 or 2 pkg. of Splenda
2/3 cup of water
Mix dry ingredients together.
Add 2/3 cup of water and stir again.

Microwave it in a container with a lid for about 80-85 seconds on medium/high (about 7). It will thicken upon standing.
Serve with butter or cream.
I hope you try it and LIKE it???


  1. I'll try it, but how many carbs?

  2. I absolutely LOVE this faux oatmeal, I have had it almost every morning since I first saw the recipe !!
