Quick {eat clean} Oats

If you don't have the time to do the Crock Pot Oatmeal and need something nutrient rich in a few minutes, try this super simple Quick {eat clean} Oats recipe.  There is really no difference between Old Fashioned Rolled Oats vs Steal Cut Oats when it comes to nutritional value. However, steel cut oats do have more cholesterol lowering soluble fiber.

Now, when comparing these Quick {eat clean} Oats to over the counter prepackaged oats there is no comparison. You will get a HUGE bowl of oatmeal with this recipe so if you are eating something else along side of this you might want to half the recipe(I would still keep the flaxseed at 1 Tbps.)

 Quick {eat clean} Oats

  • 1/2 c Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
  • 1/3 {all natural} unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbps {100% pure} maple syrup
  • 1 tbps ground flaxseed
1) Heat oats according to package.
2) Add all other ingredients and stir.
