So I feel a bit wrong posting this as a ‘recipe’ as it’s SO EASY! But I’ve had lots of comments on how you do it- so here goes….
Overnight are just that. Oats left to soak overnight in an airtight container. There are a million variations but all have the same premise- oats, milk and/or yogurt- left over night. Leaving them over night makes them so silky soft- way softer than boiling them and you get the benefits of eating raw oats too!
So I use an old jam jar as a container and fill it up with the following:
- 1/3 cup of cow’s milk, almond or coconut milk
- 1/3 cup of oats
- 1/3 cup yoghurt/coconut yoghurt or kefir (for softer oats you can always just add more milk rather than yoghurt
- Then comes your variations: I usually add raspberries and blueberries to the jar and leave them to infuse overnight with the oats. But you could add cinnamon, chia seeds, honey….or other types of fruit….or peanut/almond butter….
- Then as another variation you can add a crunchy topping just before you eat- cereal, muesli, fax, hemp or chia seeds….the list is endless! I used golden linseed in the picture!
There is no excuse that you don’t have time to make breakfast again! These take no time at all in the morning!!!
What’s your favourite overnight oats variation?
