OVERNIGHT OATSWake up happy.
You've heard of these, right? Overnight oats? They’re nothing new amongst the wellness food blogger community. They've been one of my breakfast choices for over a year now, and I really enjoy making them the night before ready to eat the morning after - I'm not sure why I didn't post my version of the recipe sooner! With wholesome ingredients such as oats, chia seeds, milk, natural yoghurt and fruit, they’re nutrient dense as well as being easy to make and filling; I also find them to be a really refreshing alternative to hot porridge, particularly at this time of year when you wake up on a warm and muggy morning after an uncomfortably hot and sticky night’s sleep – hhhhmm hot and sticky because of the summer weather I mean!
What I Used:
-1 small pot of full fat natural yoghurt
-200mls of unsweetened soya milk (I find it gives a slighter sweeter taste compared to cows milk)
-A handful of oats
-2 tablespoons of chia seeds (gives it a fibre boost)
-A dash of nutmeg
-Grated/shredded granny smith apple (or any apple really but I find these to be the sweetest (yes I have a sweet tooth)
-Any fruit of your choice for the topping (I used blueberries in this instance)
What I Did:
-Pour the yoghurt into a mixing bowl and add the milk. Stir until completely smooth.
-Add the oats, chia seeds, nutmeg and apple and mix into the yoghurt and milk mixture. You may want to add some extra milk at this stage if it is too glutinous
-Cover the bowl of mixture with some cling film and put in the fridge overnight
-Eat the remaining apple that you didn't use
-Go to bed and wake up excited to have your breakfast creation, but don’t forget to add your favourite fruit on top and maybe a little drizzle of milk if it’s overly thick and creamy!
- You could put them in your favourite Mason jar if you like and you've got 'breakfast on the go'!
