Expert Tips

Not only are oats 100 percent whole grain and a great source of fiber, they also add a nutty flavor and texture to many baked goods. Oats also contain soluble fiber, which can help lower cholesterol.

If you're using frozen (thawed) blueberries, be sure to drain them on a paper towel to soak up all the extra juice.

Enjoy a slice of this scrumptious bread with a hard-cooked egg for a hearty breakfast. If your meal plan allows 3 or more Carbohydrate Choices, pour a glass of juice or opt for a fresh orange.
