Having studied benefits of Oats, I got too obsessed on serving this food to my family. However, giving oatmeals daily was becoming monotonous and too boring. I then tried bringing variation to the way oats can be served. One such dish I am presenting below is called Oats Cutlet.

Oats advantages are numerous. Oats are extremely good for it being gluten free whole grains. It also has got antioxidants, minerals, vitamins and fiber.
