Baked apple oatmeal

January is oatmeal month. As a dietitian mom, I love oats for many reasons. Oats are super versatile and healthy. You can make oatmeal, baked oatmeal (our favorite), granola, granola bars, cookies, and smoothies.   Making sure everyone has eaten a healthy breakfast and is ready to conquer the day can be challenging. This baked apple oatmeal is a perfect way to start the morning, not only does it taste delicious but its healthy and will keep you and your family full.

Why are oats so healthy

Not only do oats taste good but they are good for you! Oats are a good source of soluble fibre to help you feel full, stabilize blood sugars, and control cholesterol levels.

Choosing the right oats can be a bit confusing with many varieties to choose from instant, to quick oats, to steel cut oats. When it comes to oats you need to read the ingredient list. Instant oats are highly processed and usually full of sugar, fillers like guar gum and artificial flavours.  Large flake oats ( also known as old fashioned oats) are quickly steamed and rolled, like steel cut oats, have their germ and bran intact, the most nutritious part of the grain. Steel cut oats are the winner when it comes to oats, they are whole grains and will keep you full all morning long, downfall they take the longest to cook. If you follow a gluten free diet check the label to ensure sure they are certified gluten free and uncontaminated.

 

I don’t know about you but I love a bowl of  baked apple oatmeal topped with plain yogurt.
