3 Sinful oat dishes to take your table by storm

We all love a tasty (not-so-guilt-free) treat every once in a while. In fact, even fitness buffs nowadays live by the 80% whole-foods, 20% soul-foods principle – which allows a healthy inclusion of treats in one’s diet.

Be it a double chocolate cookie, thin-crusted pizza, or just a good old serving of ice cream, we have thousands of binge-worthy options to choose from when it comes to treats. What if we said, you could recreate some of those sinful favourites with oats?

Don’t believe us? Here are 3 oat dishes that are just perfect for those cravings and will definitely take your table by a storm!

Cheesy Oat Bites

Cheesy oat bites almost always hit the right spot. This crunch-meets-cheese combo is deadly delicious and pairs well with ketchup or tangy marinara sauce. The best part is that you can prep a batch and freeze it for later use.

4 cups chicken stock
3 cups Jumbo Rolled Oats
½ cup Shredded Mozzarella & Parmesan
Pinch of pepper and salt
3 eggs
2-3 Cups regular/panko crumbs

Boil the chicken stock, add in the oats and cook for 10-12 mins or until most of the stock has soaked in.
Add the cheese and seasoning and set aside.
Flatten out this mixture in a pan and refrigerate overnight
Slice the flattened, chilled mixture into bite-sized squares, dunk in the egg wash, bread crumbs
Fry in hot oil till it turns golden brown
Serve with ketchup or marinara.
