Chickoo + Date Overnight Oats

Chickoo, dates and almonds make for an ideal combination of protein, energy and sugars.

I use pumpkin seeds in this, mostly for its striking green contrast against the browns!

I haven’t put in chocolate chips here, but I would recommend adding them for a richer taste.

I try to eat this concoction the most often, simply because of the wonderful goodness that exists in the dates – it’s great for your blood, anaemia and provides you great energy to start the day with.

This particular flavour has been found to be most favoured amongst the older generation – maybe now you can convince your grandparent to start his/her day with oats.
