10 healthy and filling oat recipes that will get you excited for breakfast

Oats are one of nature’s super-foods! They are 100 per cent whole grain, high in fibre and contain vitamins and minerals. They are low in calories and can lower the risk of heart disease. No wonder Healthy Mummy community member, Leah, was on a mission to make 10 healthy (and totally) filling oat recipes.

We have no doubt these 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge recipes will get you excited for breakfast!

Leah says, “Having oats for breakfast is an ideal way to start your day. Our body digests oats at a slower pace, keeping you feeling satisfied for longer.”
