1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries
1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
1 banana, peeled and sliced
1 kiwi, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 Tbsp raisins
2 Tbsp sliced almonds
1 Tbsp pumpkin seeds
1 tsp chia seeds
How to Prepare
Combine oats, dates, and 2-1/2 cups of water in a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight. If using frozen strawberries and raspberries for sauce, thaw fruit in the refrigerator overnight.
In the morning, transfer oats mixture to a saucepan. Bring to boiling over medium heat. Cover and simmer 10 minutes or until oats are tender and the water has been cooked off. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Set aside.
In a blender combine fresh (or thawed frozen) strawberries and raspberries. Blend into a sauce.
To serve, divide oatmeal between two bowls. Top with enough berry sauce to cover oatmeal. Arrange fresh fruit on top. Garnish with almonds and seeds.
