Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine oats, water and salt in a jar or bowl and stir. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

  • In the morning, heat the oats, if desired, or eat cold. Top with dates, pine nuts, honey and cinnamon.


Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled "gluten-free," as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.

To make ahead: When prepping oatmeal the night before, measure, toast and chop ingredients for the topping.

This was really good easy to make as long as you remember to start it the night before. I also toasted the nuts and chopped the dates the night before. I'll definitely make this again. Read More
