Comparing 50 grams of each of these cereals, we have: 175.5 calories, 38 grams of carbohydrates, 5.8 grams of protein, 0.7 grams of lipids, 1.2 grams of dietary fiber and no resistant starch in wheat flour; in oat flour, there are 175 calories, 33 grams of carbohydrates, 7.5 grams of proteins, 3.5 grams of lipids, 5 grams of dietary fiber and 0.8 of resistant starch.

Therefore, the oat option is less caloric and healthier . In addition, it has more fiber, helping to reduce fat and regulate blood glucose. All this without counting the feeling of satiety it promotes in the body. ( 9 )

Therefore, it is worth doing the full or partial replacement, as can be seen in the 20 oat cake recipes listed in this article. Thus, it is possible to have a healthy and nutritious dessert, without compromising the diet and weight loss process.
