You may have noticed that all the second breakfast (or dessert) recipes contain oats. You may be asking yourself ‘what’s with all these oatmeal recipes?’ There are a few reasons why I have chosen them:
Firstly, you can have your second breakfast ready to go in 5 minutes. If you are like me, you don’t have much time in the morning to prepare a warm breakfast and on cold days there’s nothing better.
Also, as the days get warmer, you can change to the overnight method and take a cold second breakfast with you. Just add the fruit to the jar in the morning and you are ready to go.
Secondly, and most importantly, oats are a nutritional powerhouse food. Here’s a list of some health benefits to eating oatmeal every day:
