Oats is considered one of the healthiest grain on planet Earth. They are not just gluten free but also a great source of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants.
But the idea of having oats does not really appeal to all of us. I am no different. But I have fallen in love with this overnight oats recipe. Not only is it simple to prepare, it actually tastes like a sinful dessert. The truth is it filled with the goodness of fresh fruits and dry fruits with no milk involved. I have been having this for breakfast every morning for the past one month and I am not bored!
This recipe is especially best for people who are torn for time in the morning. You can just carry the mason jar with you and have it once you arrive at work.
8 tbsp rolled oats
2 dates, cut into thin slices
3 fresh grapes, cut in half
1 tbsp pomegranate seeds
4 almonds, crushed
2 cashews, crushed
1 tsp honey
1 tbsp jaggery
2 tbsp yoghurt
8 tbsp water
Sliced apples for garnish
- In a mason jar, mix all the above ingredients in the order mentioned. Give it a good shake after adding the water.
- Refrigerate the oats overnight.
- Serve it in the morning along with your favourite cut fruits.
You can also add flax seeds or chia seeds to this for an extra dose of health. I sometimes also add a little bit of cocoa powder or connamon powder for a different taste.
Do let me know how it turned out for you. All I can promise is that this yummy recipe will get you addicted to a healthy start to each morning. And keep you full and energised for the day.
