I love my oats in the morning but sometimes it’s just too dam hot for porridge. On these warmer days smoothies are great but they don’t always keep me going and I do NOT do savoury first thing.
The joy of these is that they are ready and waiting for you in the fridge. No messing about with pots and pans first thing in the morning and ,most importantly, no cleaning up. I like to make a double batch for speedy breakfasts for throughout the week.
These, like any basic oat recipe, are a fantastic carrier for just about anything you fancy putting on top of them. My essentials this time of year include fresh fruit, seeds and nut butter (who would have guessed it). You could of course not put any topping on them at all but you’d be doing yourself a serious injustice (and we can’t be friends).
Honey Vanilla Overnight Oats (Serves 2-3)
1 Cup of Oats
2 Tablespoons of Milled Flaxseed/ Milled Chia Seed or combination
1 Cup of Yoghurt
1 Cup of Milk (I use coconut or rice milk)
1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
1 Tablespoon of Honey (add more depending on how sweet you like them)
Add all the ingredient into a medium sized mixing bowl. Stir until combined. Cover with cling film and pop in the fridge overnight.
The next morning place into serving bowls throw on your favourite toppings and enjoy. It’s really that easy.
Here I’ve topped mine with raspberries, blueberries, coconut, bea pollen, pumpkin seeds and coconut almond butter which is awesome and can be found here.
Hope you enjoy them. Happy Sunday all x x
