Health Benefits of Overnight Oats Kheer
According to WebMD, the healthiest and best breakfasts have carbohydrates, protein, healthy fats and fiber.
1. Oatmeal gives you complex carbs and fiber, keeps blood sugar under control and helps maintain an ideal balance of bacteria in the gut.
2. Nuts add healthy fats and
3. Milk supplies a good deal of protein and calcium.
4. Milled flax/ flax powder is good for improving digestive health and is high in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. It may also help lower total blood cholesterol which may reduce the risk of heart disease.

The Simplicity of Overnight Oats Kheer for Breakfast
With no cooking/ heating involved, all it takes is just assembling the ingredients (oats, nuts, raisins, flax powder and cardamom powder) together the night before, soaking it in milk and plopping it into the fridge allowing the milk to absorb into the oats and soften the entire mixture overnight.
In the morning, all you need to do is reach into the fridge for your bowl of overnight oats kheer and dig in. And if you're scratching your head and wondering 'is it ok to eat oatmeal without cooking,' yes it is! After being soaked overnight, the oats soften up and are easily digestible.
The added benefit of this kind of breakfast is with all the overnight prep, you just might be able to persuade your honey to bring you breakfast in bed each morning, along with coffee and the newspaper! Now I like the sound of that!
