Do Something Nice For Your Family: Bake with Oatmeal.

Do you know the health benefits that Oatmeal contains? Almost everyone knows that Oatmeal is a great source of dietary fiber. But Oatmeal's main claim to fame lies in the little fact that it actually lowers a persons cholesterol levels.

      @julieannbrady: Crisps sure do taste good, and fill that void. My mom loves to warm hers up a little bit, and top it off with a scoop of icecream.

      @indigoj: I've made it several times, it's so delicious. I don't use a lot of sugar in day-to-day things, so I never add sugar to my fruit (to me it's sweet enough) and with the brown sugar that gets added into the oatmeal makes it the perfect sweetness :) Thank-you for stopping by.

      I eat oatmeal all the time, and this will be something I try for sure. Nice to see a lens on Oatmeal because it is healthy, but many people won't eat it because it can taste bland; I don't use anything but fruits or cinnamon to give it flavor. Great lens!

      Now that we have cut pies from our diet, apple crisp is the next best thing. We make it with much less sugar than usually called for and almost no butter but it still tastes great!

      Thank you for the suggestion. I think we'll have some tonight.
