I think this is one of my favorite oatmeal recipes yet. Actually, I know that this is one of my favorite oatmeal recipes to date.
Raw Oatmeal Pudding made with four simple ingredients AND it is ready in 5 minutes?! No cooking or refrigeration necessary (I know, crazy). It’s instant breakfast that you can prep before hand or whenever you have a craving.
I have always wanted to combine overnight oats & chia seed pudding and make a super thick and nutritious Raw Oatmeal Pudding. I had to think for awhile about what would actually be in this pudding besides the usual suspects (oatmeal, chia seeds, milk).
The consistency here is key and I didn’t want it to be liquid-y at all. Then I realized the adding medjool dates to the line up would be just what I was looking for to thicken up the mixture.
At this point, I will put dates in anything. The obsession is real and I can’t get over the natural sweetness that it adds to everything. Dates are packed with fiber too so if you are ever looking for an more ways to sneak fiber into your diet, I recommend dates.
I love eating them in various no bake & raw desserts, cooking my oatmeal with them or snacking on them in my favorite Larabars.
Before making this Raw Oatmeal Pudding, you will 100% need a food processor or blender in order to blend everything to get that perfect thick pudding consistency. I can’t attest to eating or making it without one!
