Oat bran is one of the best sources for soluble fibre, proven to lower cholesterol and, as a result, helps to prevent heart disease. Of course, it cannot do it on its own, but as part of a healthy diet. Oat bran is good for you, but difficult to eat, if not as morning oats or porridge.
I just add substitute part of the oatmeal with oat bran whenever I use it for cooking. Rolled oats for breakfast? Just add one tablespoon of oat bran and it becomes a more healthier breakfast. Baking apple crisp? I like to mix some rolled oats with the flour and, again, I substitute one or two tablespoons of rolled oats with oat bran. I add one tablespoon of oat bran to granola cereal when I have it with yogurt. When I bake oatcakes, I add oat bran... and so on.
Some times, I have added oat bran to a soup or stew.
This is how I use oat bran!
