Eating healthy and eating to balance your dosha doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself.  I discovered this healthy, easy, delicious recipe for No Bake Oatmeal on Dr. Axe’s website.  I made some changes to make it balancing for my dosha (pitta /Kapha).

I swapped honey for maple syrup along with decreasing the amount of sweetener (overuse of any sweetener can create imbalance).  

*Sunflower butter is used instead of almond butter.  Sunflower seeds are best for pitta/kapha dosha since they are lighter and drier in quality.  My version is nut free so my daughter with a severe nut allergy can enjoy this treat as well.  

*Spices cinnamon and cardamom added for flavor and to help with digestion.   

 * Using gluten free regular oats also makes this treat gluten free.  This recipe is good for pitta, vata doshas; small amounts for kapha dosha.  

 Here is the recipe:
