Apple oatmeal is my favourite twist on plain oatmeal. I love the taste of apple and cinnamon and this is one of my favourite winter breakfasts, full of nutrients and ideal to keep you fully energised throughout the morning.
Oatmeal nutritional information:
Oats are a whole grain cereal high in fiber, especially beta-glucan, and are high in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Oats have several health benefits, such as lowering blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
One serving (30 grams) of oats contains 117 calories and by weight raw oats are 66% carbohydrates (good carbs), 17% protein, 7% fat and 11% fiber.
