Maple syrup or Honey: Any natural sweetener, which keeps these oats refined sugar-free. Other options include honey, jaggery syrup, karrupatti syrup , date syrup, or coconut sugar.
Chia seeds: Chia seeds provide healthy omega-3 fatty acids and fiber. Additionally, they expand while soaking, which helps create a creamy consistency.
