Breakfast is so important that I’m always searching for tasty, nutritious recipes to make sure my family starts the day right. This oatmeal is loaded with ingredients known for their cholesterol-fighting abilities, including oats, walnuts, and apples. Plus it’s quick and easy to make. You can use additional water in place of the apple juice to lower the sugar content, and simply add a bit of stevia and/or some vanilla-flavored protein powder.
