Try This: Bake With Oats Instead of White Flour

IMG_4639Health Superstars.  Oats – they’re so versatile, high in fiber and they really fill you up.  For a low-glycemic breakfast or dessert, try gluten-free oats (gotta luv Trader Joe’s!).  Next time you’re in the mood to bake, try replacing white/wheat flour with oats; you’ll love the taste and won’t miss the calories.  You can also save $$ by buying in bulk online or in the bulk aisle at your favorite health food store.

Gluten-free oats are ideal for diabetics or those suffering from gluten intolerance.  Read here for more information on that.

Whether you’re enjoying a bowl of comforting oatmeal for breakfast or incorporating them in your next baking adventure, they’re a healthier alternative to pastries, traditional toast, croissants, etc.  I love to keep a stash of homemade oatmeal in my office.  I use a large mason jar and layer oats with cinnamon, stevia, and a dash of nutmeg.  When I get a craving for something sweet and satisfying, I’ve got it covered.

Enjoy 🙂
