Do you know that oats are a great source of soluble fibre? Oats can fill up your stomach faster than other grains and so you will remain full longer! Here is a recipe that you can bake at least one week before the National Day – well you may want to munch on something while watching the National Day Parade on the television right?? The great thing about this recipe is that you can also swap the oats for quinoa to make them suitable for gluten free diets. You can add chopped almonds or raisins to it. Instead of palm sugar, you can add honey too. A dash of vanilla essence can be added if you like vanilla flavoured cookies.
