Golden Milk Oats – Turmeric Milk Oats

Golden Milk Oats is a healthy and nutrient packed breakfast option that is perfect for busy families. You can make it on the weekend, store it to use it during the week as you see fit. You have all the health benefits of oats, turmeric and milk combined into a single one-pot meal that you can use in breakfast, as a snack or even dessert, depending on your mood. Some people like it cold, or straight out of fridge. Others like it a little warm. Topping with fruits and nuts before serving is my favorite way to eat this dish.
