There are two schools of oatmeal eaters: those who like it plain and those who prefer it sweetened. If you are a member of the sweet camp, top with a bit of brown sugar.
Oatmeal has many heart-healthy benefits. It is low in saturated fat and sodium and is full of iron, magnesium, and fiber. Oats can lower cholesterol levels because of their soluble-fiber content.
To adapt this recipe for people experiencing constipation, add dried fruit, such as raisins and dried cranberries, and leave the peel on the apple. You can also use a pear instead of the apple.
