Today I’m sharing the last of my Fall oatmeal recipe series! Make sure you check out the previous two- yum!
Today’s focus is on apples! Think, apple cider but in oatmeal form. Seriously delicious.
Let’s dive into the ingredients…
Oats are low calorie yet filling! They are high in both fiber and protein. They help stable blood sugar levels thanks to their high levels of magnesium. There are many different levels of processing of oatmeal. Generally the larger the “flake”, the less processed it will be, the more nutrients it retains and the slower it will be to digest. It will also take longer to cook. There’s old fashioned oats, quick oats, steel cut oats etc They are all healthy so just see which you like best!
Apples reduce your risk of many cancers, Alzheimer’s, Parkinsons and type 2 diabetes! The fiber in apples helps with constipation. Apples boost your immune system and help support your liver in removing toxins from your body.
Walnuts reduce your risk of both prostate and breast cancer! They’re very good for your heart. They’re high in antioxidants. They also contain healthy omega-3 fats which are especially good for your brain.
Blackstrap molasses is very high in iron. It’s great for your bones, heart and colon. It’s also a good source of calcium. Some say it can help with digestive issues. It’s also a great sugar alternative because it adds sweetness but is low on the glycemic index.
Chia seeds pack in a powerful amount of nutrients despite being so low in calories. They are high in fiber, protein and healthy omega-3 fats. They’re also full of antioxidants! They can even lower your risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Coconut adds in healthy fats, fiber and protein. It’s also a good source of iron and zinc. Coconut flakes are good for both your immune system and your metabolism! Coconut has been shown, in studies, to aid with weight loss.
