Flax and Apple Raisin Oatmeal

This post may include affiliate links.

Flax seeds and apples just seem to go together. They are warm and comforting first thing in the morning, and with the added health benefits of oats, you can’t go wrong. Oats are low in sodium, saturated fat, and cholesterol. They are an excellent way to get manganese, phosphorus, and vitamin A as well.

    Like Chia and Hemp seeds, I add fine-ground flax to salads, yogurt, oatmeal, smoothies, etc. Striving to reach optimum health with proper eating habits and regular exercise is so easy. All it takes is a new mind-set in the way you think of food and the new habits you form become second nature very quickly!

    Do you think This can be cooked the same way as the apple cinnamon oatmeal (crockpot overnight?)

    • SkinnyMs  December 1, 2014

      Miranda, Yes it can.
