Are you on a perpetual weight loss mission like me? Do you wanna feed healthy breakfast to kids (and everyone)? Having high Cholesterol and Diabetes running in the family?
If you said yes to any of the above, then Masala oats is your go to recipe . Oats is low in GI (Glycemic Index) which means it is great for those who have diabetes. A great filling breakfast/ dinner with oats is said to reduce bad cholesterol improve digestion and control blood pressure. It keeps you feeling fuller for long and reduces craving to eat more, helping in the weight loss plan.
We are not a big fan of sweet and hence the sweet oats porridge does not score well in our family. But I love preparing this masala oats which satisfies the spice parameter, healthy parameter and taste too J
I am hosting a event at my blog for sharing the healthy breakfast recipes that you would be making for kids. This is one my contribution for the event.
Here we go to the recipe without much ado..
Oats (quick oats, I used quaker oats) - 4 tbsp
Water - 1 cup
