33 Easy, Healthy, & Delicious Oatmeal Toppings

Gluten-Free-LogoA heart-healthy oatmeal breakfast is a super nutritious way to start the day. Oats contain a bio-active, anti-oxidant compound called avenanthramide that could be responsible for cleaner arteries, prevention of fatty buildup, and reducing the risk of heart disease and cancer. They are also a concentrated source of fiber and nutrients.

Children will warm up to oatmeal if you let them put on sundae-type toppings (see list below). I keep raisins and nuts (almonds or pecans) in our sugar bowl for oatmeal mornings. Sweeten with honey or stevia or just the toppings. (Note Craisins are not listed as they are packed with added sugar.)
