Day 15: Oat +Baked Oatmeal #27DaysOfThanks

Day 15: Oats

There are so many delicious ways to eat oats, do you ever forget they’re healthy?
You can bake them in cookies, use them as bread crumbs, add them to your smoothie or make baked oatmeal with fresh fruit like I did here…

3 Reasons to eat Oats:

  1. Oats are great source of whole grains packed with energy fueling carbs, fiber and protein.
  2. Eating oats helps stabilize blood sugar, lower cholesterol, and control blood pressure.
  3. If you are Gluten-Free like me, you’d like to know that recent studies show that eating more oats will enhance then nutritional value of your GF diet by increasing your mineral, vitamin and antioxidant level!

I’ve been wanting to try baked oats for so long and was excited when I found a pack of 3 baking ramekins at Ross for $3.99! This recipe is SUPER simple, there are so many possible combinations you can use, it will be fun trying new things…
I used gluten-free oats, no refined sugar and no oil.
