Oats are just fabulous aren’t they?! They’re inherently sweet, lightly nutty, packed full of nutrients, fibre, complex carbohydrates (AKA lovely slow release energy) & they’re usually something we have a few of knocking about in our cupboards.
Now a bowl of porridge, an oaty biscuit or a Bircher muesli style scenario is great, but when it comes to a wonderfully sustaining snack or super portable breakfast this simple recipe is my absolute go to.
You can add more nuts & seeds, try different spices, mix up your fruity inclusions, serve plain or add yoghurt, extra fruit &/or a drizzle of nut butter/tahini. Basically use it as a backdrop for whatever you fancy.
Personally I’ll happily eat this warm, at room temperature or I’ve even been known to have a nibble before it’s fully defrosted …although delicious I probably shouldn’t advise that method from a dental perspective …but suffice to say the taste would be worth the toothache 😉
