McDonald’s Oatmeal is probably one of the most nutritious oatmeal offerings around. But it has 310 calories, and since it comes with lots of fruits and maple drizzled on top, it also has plenty of carbs.
Despite its high calorie and carb content, the chain’s oatmeal contains adequate amounts of various vitamins, minerals, and fiber.
Fiber is good for many things, including slowing down sugar absorption and lowering your risk of heart disease, among many others.
McDonald’s serves the Fruit and Maple Oatmeal warm and creamy, with a hint of maple flavor, topped with a blend of dried raisins and cranberries, and fresh chunks of real apples.
But you can reduce the calorie content by getting rid of the cranberry raisin blend or the maple syrup, or both. It all depends on how low you want to go.
For example, if you order the Oatmeal without brown sugar, you’ll save 35 calories and 15 grams of sugar. And you will still get the benefits of those healthy whole grains, which have fiber and other important nutrients too.
But if you really want to cut down on the calories and also the carbs, the best way to order it is without the fruits, raisins, and brown sugar.
For comparison, a Fruit and Maple Oatmeal with no cranberries, raisins, and apples, only has 210 calories, 4 grams of fat, 39 grams of carbs, and 4 grams of protein.
