Stepped-Up Oatmeal with Dates and Mixed Berries

Print  Friendly and PDF
Want your bowl of Oatmeal to go from Bleh to Yay?For starters, cook it in milk rather than in water and proceed from there! :). This recipe, besides tasting heavenly, is packed with awesome health benefits due to the anti-oxidant(slows down wrinkling) properties of berries, iron-packed dates and oatmeal for high fiber + gorgeous skin.The Honey dressing on the top is an added bonus for boosting your immunity system. Now this is what I call "A bowl of healthy deliciousness". Take a peek at the picture and I am sure you will agree.

So how do you eat your oatmeal? I am always looking for ways to take my oatmeal up a notch. Your ideas will be greatly appreciated!

Ingredients(For 1 Serving):
  • Steel-Cut Oatmeal - 1/2 cup
  • Dates - 4 seedless, chopped
  • Milk - 1 1/4 cups or more
  • Sugar - 1/2 tsp (optional, I skipped it)
  • Strawberry - 3, diced
  • Raspberry - 6
  • Blueberry - 10
  • Honey - 1 tbsp
Properties:
  • Cook the Oatmeal either on stove-top or in a microwave with milk along with the dates and sugar if using.
  • Top it with all the berries.
  • Drizzle honey on top.
  • Serve hot with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice.
Makes 1 Serving.

Enjoy!
