Healthy Choco-Oats Tea Cake Recipe by Coach Urmi Kothari

When someone says ‘oats’ we usually think of the sad old bowl of porridge which we usually gulp down hesitantly. We all know oats are healthy, but when it comes to taste, few of us believe it can be a tasty meal option too.

Full of fibre, protein and essential micronutrients like iron, magnesium and calcium, it’s a grain that’s very versatile.
