Arabian nights oatmeal is a healthy overnight jar with a swirl of Arabic and Indian flavors. It packs the oats with great vitamins from green apple and carrot. The saffron and spices supplement the jar with several medicinal benefits and the pine nuts kick you with energy early morning. The best part about this jar is that it is naturally sweetened by dates and does not contain any sugar or sugar substitutes.
In a small bowl, add 4-5 table spoons of milk and soak the saffron strands in it for 15 mins or longer. Preferably use regular milk, as the saffron flavor emerges better in this. However, if you want to go dairy free, then you can soak the saffron in almond or other dairy free milk of your choice.
Take an oats jar or other medium size container and start heaping the ingredients in it.
Add quick oats at the bottom. Then add green apple, grated carrot and chopped dates. Also add cinnamon powder and a whole star aniseed.
Pour the milk over all ingredients (fill enough quantity to immerse all ingredients in milk). You can use less or more depending on your preference of how thick you like your oats.
Finally mull the soaked saffron and pour on top of the jar.
In the end just shake the jar slightly (avoid stirring all ingredients).
Close the lid/ or cover container and keep in the fridge overnight (or at least 4 hrs)
When you are ready to eat, mix the jar ingredients well.
Finally top with some roasted pine nuts and your Arabian nights jar is ready to bring in a good morning for you.
