🥄 Benefits of eating oats
Oats are among the healthiest whole grains on earth. They're a gluten-free whole grain and super nutritious. They are great source of important vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. They are commonly eaten for breakfast as oatmeal (porridge), but can also be included in muffins, granola bars, cookies and other baked goods.
Studies show consuming oats may benefit weight loss, lower blood sugar levels and a reduced risk of heart disease. They contain many powerful antioxidants, and are high in the soluble fiber called beta-glucan. Beta-glucan has numerous benefits like helping reduce cholesterol and blood sugar levels, promoting healthy gut bacteria and increasing feelings of fullness. In conclusion: oats are among the healthiest foods you can eat! (source) This plant based baked oatmeal recipe is a great and easy way to incorporate oats into your diet.
Store leftover baked oatmeal in a closed container in the fridge for up to 4 days. To reheat put shortly in a microwave, or in the oven to crisp and warm up.
