  • Nutrition Tip

    Oats contain a healthy dose of soluble and insoluble fiber. When eaten as part of a balanced diet, fiber-rich oats may help decrease cholesterol levels, decrease blood pressure and help control blood sugar levels.

    The fiber in oats is slow to be digested, keeping you fuller longer. The fiber in oats is also beneficial to the digestive tract in keeping the bowels functioning regularly.

    This recipe is a sweet way to start your day with some delicious nutrition. It is easy to make this recipe gluten-free by choosing gluten-free oats.
