What is oatmeal with apple for?
Both oats and apples provide nutrients, fiber and have numerous health benefits, making them an excellent breakfast food. You can also enjoy it at lunch or dinner if you want something fresh, sweet and nutritious.
Since both foods are satiating, you will feel full for several hours. This helps to avoid snacking, thus contributing to losing weight or maintaining your healthy weight, by not being tempted to eat the first thing you find.
By having fiber, oats and apples help maintain intestinal regularity, among many other benefits.
What kind of oats is best?
To make overnight oats, I recommend using traditional oats. Be sure to use the large flakes as they take longer to absorb liquid, resulting in thick, creamy oats.
On the other hand, instant oats, because they have smaller flakes, are not thick enough to absorb the liquid without having to change the recipe, resulting in an unpleasant watery oatmeal.
For the perfect apple oatmeal, you need to use the right amount of liquid, which varies depending on the type of oatmeal:
– Traditional oat flakes or rolled oats: ½ cup oatmeal + ¾ cup liquid
Overnight, the oats soak up the liquid, soften, and achieve the smooth, creamy texture we all know.
What kind of apple is better?
The truth is that whatever you have on hand works for this recipe since it can be made with any type of apple. But… I must also tell you that certain apple varieties that, due to their crunchy texture, work better; like green apples, for example.
Cooked with cinnamon, syrup, and butter, these apples make this recipe amazing.
