Bran Food

I haven’t talked to you all about oat bran yet.

Sounds exciting, right?

Let me try to sway you…

It’s creamy, cooks in 3 minutes if you start with hot water, and has more protein and fiber than oatmeal.

Okay, well that’s exciting to me.

I’ve been eating the Trader Joe’s oat bran:

Like I said, if you boil water (or heat milk in a pan), it will be ready in minutes. Just stir in the oat bran (~a 3:1 liquid to oat bran ratio) and let it cook until it thickens to a consistency that pleases you.
Like cream of wheat, but much more nutritious.
Then top it!

That’s ground flax, chopped banana, yogurt, peanut butter, coconut, and fig butter (another Trader Joe’s delight).

See, I told you…. Exciting!
