overnight oats recipe

Oats are rich in complex carbohydrates and full of fibre.

This recipe is a great base to add lots of toppings for extra texture and nutrients making it a great satiating breakfast which can be made in advance.

Serves 2 (you can double the recipe and it will keep in the fridge for a couple of days)


Ingredients

1 mug of oats

1.5 mugs of plant-based milk (I like oat milk)

3 tbsp chia seeds

1 tsp of vanilla extract

1 tsp of cinnamon or cardamom

1 banana

Protein/good fat toppings per bowl: 1 tbsp of ground flaxseeds, 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds, 1 tbsp sunflower seeds, 1 tbsp hemp seeds 1 tbsp desiccated coconut or 1 tbsp nut butter

Fruit topping per bowl: Handful of berries (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries), a sliced kiwi or a sliced apple


Recipe


Mash the banana in a mixing bowl.


Add the oats, plant-based milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon/cardamom powder, chia seeds and stir well.


Store in the fridge for a couple of hours or make the night before.


When ready to eat, place in a bowl and serve with 1-3 of the protein/good fats toppings and 1 fruit topping.



Enjoy! Michelle x
