In order to make oats tastier and more wholesome, add some chopped fruits to your sweet oats. Oats can be made even healthier by sweetening them with jaggery, honey or stevia. You make a number of recipes with oats like oatmeal, masala oats, oats cheela, oats smoothie, oats cutlets, oats chapati and many more.
You can also add some nuts and seeds like almonds, walnuts, chia seeds or pumpkin seeds to your bowl of cornflakes and milk. Chopped apples, bananas and strawberries too taste amazing in cornflakes. (image credits- istock)
