Why It’s Good For You:

Whole rolled oats are gluten free by nature* and contain a wide variety of vitamins and minerals. They also contain a powerful fiber called beta-glucan that has been linked to improving cholesterol levels and boosting heart health. Chia seeds and hemp seeds both contain vitamins, minerals, protein and essential fatty acids that help keep your cell membranes healthy and permeable, which allows nutrition in and waste out. This low-sugar meal will keep you full and leave you feeling energized.

Hi!

I read that the proper way to eat oats is first soaked and then cooked, ir oder to digest it properly. What do you think about it?

And secondly, how long do you recommend to keep the oats in the pantry? Because I noticed that in some point it changes the flavoour, like more rancid. But I don't know which is the ideal time?

Thanks!
PS: Loved this serie!

Hi Solange! Yes, you may soak the oats overnight which improves digestibility and their natural phytic acid is greatly reduced that makes them more easily absorbed by your body. And this recipe should keep for 2-3 days in an airtight container in the fridge. ~ Jasmin

Hi Mariana! You can try using steel-cut oats for this recipe since they have been chopped into thick pieces, you may want to cook them a bit longer. ~ Jasmin

Hello Yuri, although freshly prepared meals are always the best, you may also make a big batch and store it in the fridge to prolong their shelf life and slow down the spoilage process. This will not deplete the nutritional value as long as it is stored properly. Overnight oats can be stored in an airtight container for up to five days in the refrigerator. The caveat is that they'll continue to soften the longer they sit — which might be a bonus if you like your oatmeal on the super-creamy side. However, it's wise to leave out things like coconut flakes and fresh fruit, as they'll also soften while sitting in the fridge. I hope this helps ~ Ivory :)
