    Question Extra Easy: Oat bran as a healthy extra B? Low fat natural yogurt for HexA

    Hi can I use Oat bran as a healthy extra B?

    I like to mix this with low fat natural yogurt (1.3 % fat)as my breakfast every day (this is from when I used to follow the Dukan diet 3 years ago and it is still my cereal of choice I add a tsp of Splenda and a flavouring of choice from my Dukan flavourings which I love). My yogurt then counts as my HexA for the day...
    Is this ok? I don't do cereal bars as i find them too sweet.

    And the yoghurt either needs to be one of the free variety or, if not, it needs to be synned

    I have 35g porridge oats (hexb) and a ff yoghurt for breakfast most mornings. Depending on the yoghurt ill add different fruits (and 0.5syn for flavoured ff yog) e.g yesterday I had lemon yoghurt with chopped strawberries, or vanilla yoghurt with banana is good.
    Oats are a bit more textured than the bran but I prefer is- found bran 'claggy' if you know what I mean? Lol x

    You can use 5 oatbran (scan bran) as a HE B. These are allowed on SW and are a type of crispbread. Fat free natural yogurt is free!

    When I followed Dukan, I did this. I just soaked the oatbran in a little boiled water to soften and then stirred in the yogurt.

    That's a shame as I actually prefer oat bran to other cereals, I do syn my low fat yogurt so have counted these i don't use flavoured ones as they are full of sugar. just i would rather use the lowfat yogurt as a healthy extra rather than cheese, ( i like proper cheese not dairylea and laughing cow...So i have cheese in my syns...
