Brighten up your morning with something delicious
Cherries and pistachios make an undeniably great team, especially in the flavor department. Personally, they are one of my all-time favorite flavor combinations. I fell in love with the duo while eating in an Indian restaurant. The waiter delighted me at the end of the meal with a pistachio cardamom biscuit and coffee. I was absolutely fascinated by the bold crispness of the pistachios against the juicy tartness of the cherries. Along with the warmth of cinnamon and cardamom, these cookies still hold a special place in my heart.
Where biscuits meet oatmeal
Unfortunately, cookies don’t make a nutritious breakfast. Honestly, if I could devour the yummy goodies every morning without feeling guilty, I would! Because of this, I decided to bring my love for cookies to the kitchen.
What if I could create a recipe based on the delicious flavor combinations of my favorite dessert? After trying things out for a long time, I came up with something that was probably tastier than a biscuit and certainly more satisfying. This recipe for Cherry Pistachio Overnight Oats offers the ideal balance between salty, sweet, crispy and creamy.
Every bowl is packed with health benefits
This recipe calls for clean, comforting ingredients. Each bowl provides loads of vitamins, minerals, and vital nutrients. First, cherries contain a shipload of antioxidants that can reduce inflammation. Research shows that they can even improve the quality of sleep and promote recovery from exercise. Impressive!
Meanwhile, the oatmeal itself has a pretty impressive nutritional resume. This gluten-free whole grain can help you lose weight, balance blood sugar, and reduce the risk of disease. Oats are high in antioxidants and a powerful fiber called beta-glucan. This soluble fiber can lower cholesterol, promote colon health, and help you feel full longer. Sign me up!
