Air Fryer Oatmeal, a bariatric breakfast recipe for after weight loss surgery
If you’re on the road to living life after weight loss surgery, then you know how important it is to carefully select what you eat in the morning. Planning your breakfasts doesn’t have to be a hassle. As a bariatric patient, you deserve a breakfast of champs.
When it comes to thinking about a healthy breakfast, you might be thinking of a steamy bowl of warm oats. This grainy cereal is very common and best of all with oatmeal you can customize any way you want by adding fruits, nuts or other flavors.
The problem with most oatmeal however is that more of the common brands that are rolled or quick oats contain high amounts of sugar and are usually more processed. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so don’t settle for just any regular oats.
When it comes to nutritional value, steel cut oats are the way to go if you’re living life after bariatric surgery. As a weight loss patient, avoiding high processed sugary foods is the best way to live a more successful life. As an organization that is dedicated to being a number one resource for weight loss champions, we want to make sure we are selecting the best possible ingredients that can help you during your weight loss journey.

Our air fryer oatmeal recipe is unique because we used steel cut oats instead of rolled or quick oats. What makes steel cut oats so special? Well, steel cut oats aren’t as processed and they take longer for your body to digest. So not only is this recipe ready in less than 10 minutes, but it will also help you feel fuller longer. A double win for a bariatric patient.
When it comes to taste, steel cut oats have more of a nuttier flavor and a chewy texture to them. In our recipe, we added walnuts and a pinch of cinnamon which blended very well all together!
If you did not want to go the nutty route, substituting slices of your favorite fruit will also pair well with this recipe.
