Have 2 minutes to spare? Well, it looks like you have enough time to get breakfast whipped together a bowl of savory, cream oat bran!
If you’ve never heard of oat bran, you’re in for a real treat. Oat bran is quick to cook up, packed with plant-based fiber, and is the perfect bowl of breakfast for when you want something hearty, yet low in calories – about 150 calories in 40 grams.
Oat bran, like oatmeal, is mild in flavor. What’s different about oat bran is that it has a smoother texture, similar to farina or Cream of Wheat. Oats can be cooked savory or sweet, it’s up to you and your tastebuds. I love a savory breakfast to get my day started. When I want breakfast hearty, I throw in mushroom bacon and a quick tofu scramble.
Oat bran takes about 1-2 minutes to cook, yielding a large bowl of creamy oats that will keep you satisfied all morning.
