Health 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.
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.
