Overnight Oats

With the current cold and dark winter mornings it sure is hard to pry myself out of bed on time, which then leads to a rushed morning and breakfast being eaten on the train to work, or not having a proper breakfast which I thought I would never say.

Last night I decided that my routine had to change, by preparing my breakfast the night before it would save time as well as guaranteeing a proper well-balanced breakfast.

Overnight oats are a popular recipe that was shared everywhere last year, however the trend seems to have fallen off coming into the cooler months. I don’t think this needs to be the case as this breakfast is like having a fruity and chocolatey dessert at breakfast time and it is just as tasty as porridge served with a hot cup of tea or coffee. Alternatively, overnight oats can be served warm by placing them in the microwave for a minute or two.

This recipe contains some of my all-time favourite foods  – oats, almonds, raspberries, yoghurt and cacao nibs. I am not including quantities for this recipe as everyone tends to eat a different sized breakfast, so this can be adapted to suit. Additionally, overnight oats are best made in individual containers, so you can all make a serve that suits your usual breakfast intake.

Ingredients

  • Raspberries
  • Almonds
  • Oats
  • Cacao Nibs
  • Yoghurt (natural unsweetened)
  • Almond Milk (or any type of milk)

Instructions

  1. Find a suitable container or jar that will provide the same volume as would your usual breakfast bowl
  2. Place frozen raspberries on the bottom in a layer, then layer almonds and oats on top, a small sprinkle of cacao nibs and then a layer of yoghurt
  3. Pour in some milk until the oats are just covered and the milk just comes up to about half-way
  4. Seal the container and leave in the fridge overnight
  5. Prior to serving the next morning stir the oats to combine all the ingredients and transfer into your usual breakfast bowl (heat in the microwave for a minute or two to serve warm if desired)
  6. Sprinkle with cacao nibs, cinnamon or coconut to serve

Enjoy!! xx
