Hearty, old-fashioned rolled oats in the morning will keep you satisfied until lunchtime.
Raisins are not only a great source of fiber, but they also add a sweet flavor with no added sugar.
Oats do not contain gluten but can be manufactured in a facility with gluten. For severe allergies, it’s best to buy oats labeled gluten free.
Avoid using nuts or nut-based milks as a topping if you have a nut allergy.
