How To Make Overnight Oats

I have been obsessed with creating new healthy breakfasts lately. If you follow me on Instagram then you would have seen a few of the photos. I have always been an advocate for a green smoothie in the mornings. However lately I have been needing something more substantial to curb my hunger. Poached eggs on toast started to become the norm for me, but since I am trying to improve my digestion and lose weight. I felt that this was not a great choice. It left me feeling a bit heavy and stodgy. So I set out to find some fresh and healthy breakfast ideas that would fill me up until lunch time, yet not feel so heavy in the morning. That was when I came across overnight oats.

 

Overnight oats have been a popular trend on Pinterest, and when you see all the different variations and beautiful pictures. It is hard not to understand why. They are quick and easy to make, yet packed full of fibre and nutrients ( depending on what you put in it). Even though there are heaps of variations the base ingredients are rolled oats and milk.

So I thought I would share with you all the recipe that I have been using that is packed full of superfoods and tastes delicious!

Overnight oats

OVERNIGHT OATS

Ingredients

1/2 cup of Rolled Oats

3/4 Cup of Milk (I use Almond Milk )

1 tsp of Cinnamon

1 tsp of Chia seeds

1/2 Banana

Handful of Strawberries

Handful of Blueberries

Drizzle of honey.

NOTE: The amount of milk you use depends on how you like your oats. Some people prefer them thicker while others like them a bit watery. I do not like my oats too thick so 3/4 of a cup of milk is good for me. However if you prefer a thicker consistency try using only 1/2 a cup.

Method 

Mix the Oats, Milk, Cinnamon and Chia seeds together in a bowl until combined. Tip the mixture into a small air tight container and pop it in the fridge. Leave it overnight for at least 10 hours so that the oats and chia seeds absorb the milk.

When you are ready to eat, cut up the banana and strawberries. Add the fruit to the oats and drizzle with some honey. Overnight oats are best served chilled.

Some people like to add a nut butter to the oat mixture before chilling in the fridge, however I find this to make them a little too rich for my liking.

Please note that the chia seeds and cinnamon are optional. If these are not your cup of tea then please omit them. However I add them for the additional nutritional punch, plus the chia seeds add a bit of sweetness.
