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.

Oatmeal is indeed very good for you. It is a heart smart food. So give your family a start in the right direction and do something truly wonderful for them today. Give them the health benefits of oatmeal.

It isn't too hard to encourage them to eat oatmeal once they discover exactly how great an apple or blueberry crisp tastes. In addition to the oatmeal think how healthy that extra serving of fruit is for them too. It is a win win dessert being both nutritious and delicious.

@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.

yummy healthy recipe.

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!

ChrisDay LM on February 21, 2011:

Looks yummy!

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.
