Default Question about oatbran

I eat rolled or steel cut oats daily but am looking for oatbran to make muffins that supposedly good for lowering cholesterol. I am not familiar with oatbran...is it ground fine like flour?....where do you buy it?
thanks!

It is very fine and light much like flour. I buy it in the organic bulk bin section of the grocery store. It's good in bread too.

Ok I don't have a recipe for oatbran muffins but you can make an awesome oatbran banana breakfast. My kids love it, I love it, and even my picky hubby likes it!

The recipe is here: http://www.recipezaar.com/Oat-bran-B...-for-One-55286

I mix oatbran with cream of wheat for my breakfast cereal. Haven't used it for cooking though.

Quaker makes oatbran. You should be able to find it with the cooked cereals in the grocery store.

I love oat bran....little flakes of oaty goodness . Over the summer I was eating it ~ 3 nights a week for dinner and it bound me up something fierce! Way too much fiber for me but in baked goods probably not so much a worry . I find it in the bulk bins or in the cereal aisle.

Nope - there's such a thing as too much which can cause bloating, cramping, constipation, etc. It's all about balance!
