What I love about this recipe is how easy it is to make, once you have all the ingredients mix then bake in the oven. The only thing you have to do is wait for the oats and the seeds to roast. After they are done all there is left to do is bring a bowl and a spoon and drench it with your favorite milk, so satisfying. It is very easy to change up with other ingredients too by adding more seeds, nuts, and dry fruits. It is equally good with fresh fruit too, like berries.
