Reviews for Overnight Maple Oatmeal
"I can 't imagine wanting to eat cold wet oatmeal."
"You can make it more diabetic friendly by using plain fat-free yogurt instead of the vanilla yogurt, Greek yogurt if you want even more protein, and replacing the maple syrup with sugar-free syrup. That will cut carbs and fat.The Nutritional Facts for the recipe as is - 36 grams of carbs, but you have to add the carbs for any fruit you inlcude. So, it could put you over the recommended amount of carbs for a diabetic meal, which is 45-60."
"No, jenn, the oatmeal is not cooked. It sits overnight and soaks up the milk and becomes softer, and it's not a hot cereal, it's eaten cold and requires no cooking at all."
