Rolled oats are high in fiber and protein compared to other grains. Oats contain some unique components — in particular, the soluble fiber beta-glucan and antioxidants called avenanthramides. Benefits include lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels, protection against skin irritation and reduced constipation. Apples are extremely rich in important antioxidants, flavanoids, and dietary fiber. The phytonutrients andantioxidants in apples may help reduce the risk of developing cancer, hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease.
Vegan and vegetarian. Replace eggs with Vegan egg substitute for cooking. Use Vegan butter. Kick the GLUTS and ensure the oats that you use are non-contaminated, pure oats.
