These muffins not only taste delicious but are good for your heart too!
Oats and oatbran are rich in beta-glucan soluble fibre which has been shower to lower blood cholesterol – which reduces risk of heart disease. Cholesterol is a type of fat known as a ‘lipid’ and it is vital for bodily functions such as producing hormones and making vitamin D. Cholesterol is carried around the body as lipoproteins known as LDL (bad) and HDL (good).. too much LDL can lead to blocked arteries (with HDL helping to reduce this risk!).
