Benefits of Oats!?

If you aren’t familiar, oats are super nutritious! They include a great source of carbs, fiber (the soluble kind!), protein, and fat. In addition, they are loaded with important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant.

Other great benefits:

  • They can help to lower cholesterol.
  • Improves Blood Sugar levels.
  • May help with losing weight.
  • Great alternative for skincare.
  • Helps to relieve constipation.

What About the Pumpkin?

When it comes to the pumpkin flavor, I use the pumpkin from the can specifically for pumpkin puree, NOT pumpkin pie filling (I use the organic version from Libby’s). Simply open the can, scoop out the required amount, mix it together well with the spices, heat everything in a saucepan together, let it cool, and wallah.
