Doctor Oz and Harley Pasternak, author of The 5-Factor Diet, gave a few creative oatmeal recipes for making 3 recipes with one ingredient: oatmeal!  Oatmeal can help lower cholesterol and is delicious in the morning with just a touch of brown sugar and dried fruit, but I love these creative ways to use oatmeal in other recipes too!

Dr Oz & Harley Pasternak’s Apple Cinnamon Frittata Recipe


4 egg whites (from carton)

2 cups rolled oats

2-3 tbsp diced dried apples

1 tsp cinnamon

2 tbsp unsweetened, natural applesauce (for garnish)


1.  Spray non-stick baking spray on the inside of a microwave safe bowl.

2.  Put the egg whites in the bowl and mix in the oats, cinnamon and dried apples.

3.  Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, but leave a small vent on one side so the steam can come out

4.  Microwave for 3-4 minutes.  Serve with applesauce on top.

Another option is to cook this dish in a frying pan like a pancake.  I can imagine many fun variations – cranberry & pecan for example instead of apple and cinnamon.  I wonder if fresh apples would work instead of dried apples?  I will have to try it out.  I love oatmeal recipes that help you to lose weight!
