Oatmeal Fufu is an increasingly popular dish made with wholegrain oats. Oatmeal Fufu is an healthier substitute for traditional Nigerian “swallows”. Before we go any further, I’ll briefly talk about the benefits of Oatmeal.
Oatmeal is an appetite suppressor that can be an integral part to any weight loss diet. It is low in calorie and rich in soluble fiber, which can help anyone feel fuller for longer, as it takes a long time to digest. This keeps hunger at bay, which can help you stay slim. Oatmeal is a carbohydrate and protein-rich source that provides calories and energy. This helps the stomach empty its contents slowly, which affects blood sugar levels and has a positive effect on our insulin sensitivity. Oatmeal reduces cholesterol and helps reduce blood pressure.
See, it’s a win-win situation all the way. Oatmeal Fufu is very easy to make, please note that you need original Oats for this recipe, not the flavoured oats, just plain, old fashioned Oats..
