Berrylicious Overnight Oats Boosted with Boncare

Jump to the Overnight Oats Boosted with Boncare Recipe

Hello friends! If there is a theme now it is getting ready for Ramadan. Many of you have asked me to share things that work for me and I did so in my previous post and will continue along these lines now. First of all let me be honest and say that while my collection of sprinkles is expansive space in my kitchen is at a premium so I generally don’t indulge in trendier foods unless they bring serious nutritional punch and are easy to use. Boncare, or raw date seed powder, hits the mark on both fronts. 

I am mama to two kids. They are 4 and 7. They usually love it when I try and introduce mystery foods to their diets.

Not.

Overnight Oats

With Boncare powder it was so easy for me to add extra fibre to our overnight oats without them even noticing. How much extra fibre? Well one teaspoon of this stuff has 10% of an adults daily fibre and 2% of our iron. It also has other benefits you can read about hereOvernight Oats

Anyway back to them oats – as I was saying these are a great suhoor go to because you can put them together in 5 minutes. This makes 2 adult sized servings or three snack sized ones. I love to pile on the berries for an extra boost of anti oxidants and flavour. They leave me feeling recharged and refreshed. I make them with milk and greek yogurt since greek yogurt is a protein powerhouse.

Recipe Notes

I like my oatmeal fairly thick so I tend to add the larger quantity of oats, but for a thinner consistency go with the 1/2 cup!

    I have a very suspicious child too, so am always on the look out for different ways to sneak extras into her diet. I love the sound of the date seed powder, and will keep an eye out for it. Thanks for sharing this!

    Haha I loved the part about the kids loving mystery food in their diet – I was totally confused/jealous/miserable-like-a-failed-parent for 2 seconds until I saw the “Not” 😂
    I am trying to find a way out of the usual paratha-anda sahoor (at least for myself – the hubs will R.I.O.T.). This is a great idea!
