Oatmeal, muffins, bread, and even smoothies! There are so many ways to eat oats for breakfast.
t is recommended that Americans make at least half of the daily grains they eat whole grains.  Oats are an excellent source of whole grains and eating them in the morning is a great way to work towards meeting this goal for the day. Oats also contain protein and fiber, which can help keep you fuller longer and aid in digestion.  With these health benefits, oats are a wonderful breakfast choice!
