Sticky Date Pudding Oats

If you love breakfast and if you love dessert, then this is the perfect dish for you! Filled with nutrients to help you feel good, as well as decadent flavours to keep you feeling satisfied. Oats are a fantastic source of carbohydrates and fibre, as well as protecting LDL Cholesterol from damage- to me, they’re the ultimate breakfast option. It’s what I usually eat 3-4 times a week as it sets me up for a long day’s work. These oats are also packed with dates (sticky date pudding- of course!) which are also high in fibre (keep in mind, because they are a dried fruit, they are higher in kilo-joules). So your bowels are going to LOVE you after eating this. Which is a good thing because cases of bowel cancer in Australia are increasing, with 20,000 new cases predicted for 2020. Therefore, it is super important to look after your gut! So make a batch of these oats, serve with greek yoghurt or kefir for a source of probiotics and thank yourself later. 🥣 ❤️
