Bring the water to a boil in a medium sized pot.
Add the oats and boil for one minute.
Turn off the heat, cover the pot with a lid and let them set for one hour. Transfer to a container and store in your fridge.
From here you can top them with whatever you like, but whatever you do be sure you make our Date Syrup to drizzle on top.
Place the dates in a blender along with the water, cinnamon, vanilla and salt.
There’s no need to add non-dairy milk because they aren’t dry. I urge you to get creative with your toppings. Apple and almond pieces could be awesome, peaches and toasted walnuts sounds like a wet dream and even going old school with banana and raisins sounds like a plan.
