If you’ve had a chance to browse through the recipes on this website, you’ve already noticed, that for many desserts I use oatmeal flour. This is much healthier choice, and the outcome is delicious.
Oats are a hardy cereal grain, easy to grow in even poor soil conditions. Oats gain part of their distinctive flavor from the roasting process that they undergo after being harvested and cleaned. Although oats are then hulled, this process does not take away their fiber and nutrients, necessary to maintain general health.
Oats are a good source of:
- Vitamins B
- Vitamin E
- Fiber, known as beta-glucan
Oats have a very positive effect on human’s health:
- Lower cholesterol levels
- Play important role in preventing a heart disease or diabetes
- Treat skin problems
- Acute or chronic anxiety
- Excitation and stress
- Weak bladder
