Oatmeal vs Oat Bran

Based on the taste aspect I personally prefer cooked oat bran with some cinnamon and blueberries. I know that both of the nutritional breakdowns are very similar and was wondering if there are any reasons to pick one over the other as far as other benefits are concerned?

Not really. I like oat bran, it cooks up fast, and the taste and texture is better than regular oatmeal.

I also prefer oat bran, but nutritionally I think they are very similar. Oat bran may have a bit more fiber if I remember correctly.

oat bran has more protein and fiber than old fashioned oatmeal… it’s a nice change of pace, but imo doesn’t cook as well in the microwave as opposed to o.f. oatmeal
