Biscuity Oats Dates Cake Recipe

 

Boscuity Oats Dates Cake

I have nostalgic memories when thinking of oats. Oats was introduced to me by my dear roommate, JJ, when I was studying and staying at a convented hostel. I think, she had 2 big packets of oats, each weighing around 2 kgs.. And she knew she is not going to finish it off alone. Or she must have got really bored eating oats. Thus, there I gave her a company..

And, as obvious, even I had to feed on oats almost daily, because that time I did’nt have time to think or try any recipes.. Oats porridge was the simplest breakfast I can ever have. Just soak it in some hot milk, drop in some fresh fruits and there you have it!.. your best quick breakfast ready..  I doubt, I have ever used sugar in it.. The sweetness of banana and dates were enough..

While eating this cake, you will get the same feeling of eating one of your crunchy choco biscuits. It is super crumbly. I had hard time cutting it in shapes. Slight crunchiness of  roasted nuts here and there. And few small bites of dates. I really wanted to use up the oats which was in my pantry for a while. It is not so often, I make dishes with oats, though my inner-self want to.
