Oats are one of the healthiest grains out there; they are whole grains, gluten-free and provide a great source nutrients. Studies have shown oats have many health benefits including; weight loss, lower blood sugar levels and can reduce the risk of heart disease. Within this recipe, we have also added Chia Bia seeds, which despite their size are beneficial to our bodies, with an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids.
