Despite being higher in fat, nuts does not appear to contribute to weight gain; perhaps because some of the fat is not absorbed and because nuts are so filling– keeping people full until the next meal. Pistachios, in particular, may be beneficial for men, especially those with erectile dysfunction.

⅓ cup oats

1 tablespoon chia seeds

Unsweetened plant-based milk, of choice (e.g. almond, soy, cashew)*

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

1-2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

2-4 tablespoons unsalted pistachios

½-1 tablespoon unsweetened coconut flakes
