Oats are one of the most recommended healthy grains. They are naturally gluten free, high in fiber, antioxidants and many vitamins and minerals.
When I began my weight loss journey, I wasn't a big fan of that warm, mushy texture, but knowing the benefits I wanted to include them in my diet. I have clients who LOVE oatmeal, and those who HATE it.
So I decided to create a list of 10 different ways to cook them and share it with you all.
1. Like a good crunch?
Enjoy toasted oats in a homemade granola and have with milk or yogurt
2. Like it traditional?
Enjoy oats cooked in water or nut milk and top with fruit & nuts
3. Like a cold twist?
Enjoy overnight oats with almond milk, chia seeds and fruits in a mason jar.
4. Like them out of sight?
Toss them in your protein smoothie, and blend away.
5. Like them baked?
Turn them into banana oatmeal cookies.
6. Like them disguised?
Put them in your pancake mix.
7. Like them savory?
Bake them into your egg muffins.
8. Like them in dessert?
Make a healthy apple crumble/ crisp with rolled oats
9. Like them as a quick treat?
Add them to your protein energy balls.
10. Like them savory?
Use them to make a breakfast risotto, swap orzo for oats.
Who knew there were so many ways to consume oats? Which one of these appeals to you the most? Do you have a favorite?
