From Our Kitchen: Overnight Oats with Rose & Berry Compote

Overnight oats are a perfect, nutritious snack that are guaranteed to make your mornings easier. In this recipe, gluten-free oats are soaked overnight, then expand their texture by melding flavors like lucuma (which tastes like a cross between maple and sweet potato, giving your oats a little edge), cinnamon, and date paste. 

To top it off, we are making a delicious rose & berry compote. The sweetness of the fruit soaks into the oats overnight, making it truly delectable. Any fruit can be transformed into a tasty, versatile compote, and fresh, frozen or bruised berries work. There’s no canning necessary – just heat the berries in a pot, and add a few flavorings for a thickening edge. We’ve also added rosewater, which is rich in anti inflammatory properties, and a pinch of maple syrup, making this compote the cherry on top to this amazing breakfast snack.
