Healthy oats & nut mixture is a power-packed delicious crunchy & nutty snack made with healthy grains like oats, rice flakes loaded with lots of nuts, seeds & flavored with tangy masalas.

Oats are one of my favorite grains. It’s so versatile. I basically include them in cakes, cereals, dosas, paranthas, smoothies, Khichdi, poha  &  the list goes on.
I consume it almost daily in various different forms and I keep on trying and making different tasty recipes so I and my family can consume it daily happily and enjoy it.
Oats Are Incredibly Nutritious, rich in antioxidants & contain a powerful soluble fiber.
They Can Lower Cholesterol Levels, protect LDL cholesterol from damage & improve Blood Sugar Control.
Oatmeal Is Very Filling and May Help You Lose Weight & good for healthy skin.
