This recipe is sure to bring back the nostalgia of Quaker brown sugar oats, the aroma of some freshly ground cardamom in your chai, and the sweetness of freshly baked cinnamon rolls on a Sunday morning. Starting your day off with a wholesome, fiber fueled meal will keep you satiated and energized–whether you are doing a one or two meal fast, or just looking for a healthy alternative to namkeen nastha during Paryushan.

I mean, doesn’t that just look like a hug from the inside in a bowl?? It’s got cozy written all over it!
