Oat Bran 101

by HEAB on January 7, 2011

A reader emailed me yesterday requesting I do a post about my beloved oat bran. So, here goes.

My favorite way to eat oat bran is plain and topped with nut butter…


To make it, I simply add 1 cup water to 1/2 cup oat bran in a pot on the stovetop and bring it to a boil. Once boiling, I reduce the heat to medium and then stir until it reaches my desired consistency – usually only takes about a minute or two. The oat bran is pretty plain tasting, but I prefer it that way.

However, there are times when I like a little boost of flavor…


Chia Protein Oat Bran


Or how about a savory bowl: Oat bran blended with spinach and topped with an egg and raw cashew cheese


Blueberry Cobbler Oat Bran


Apple Pie Oat Bran: Oat bran cooked with butter and a chopped apple and topped with cinnamon and almond butter.


Overnight chia protein oats topped with HEABified Magic Shell


Strawberry Shortcake Oat Bran

Speaking of strawberry shortcakes…


Summer says Hi.

So, there you have it folks. Oat bran 101. Just be glad I spared you any photos from my cauliflower oat phase. Really, what was I thinking?!? 😉
