Overnight Oats

I’m not sure many of you have heard of this before, but it is a must try. I have been obsessed with it since the first time I made it a few weeks ago and have it for breakfast nearly everyday. It’s easy and delicious and especially good for summer, since it involves no cooking. Yes, you read right ‘no cooking’!!! Try the basic recipe below, I’ll be putting up some variations in the coming weeks.



Overnight oats



Basic overnight oats

1/3 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup milk

1/2 tblsp chia seeds*

1-2 tsp honey or other sweetener (adjust to your sweetness tastes)

*chia seeds can be found in health food shops, it is an ancient seed that’s full of protein and omega 3 and 6, it also helps you stay fuller for longer

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and put it in the fridge overnight. Top with yoghurt, fresh fruit or nuts and enjoy! This recipe is that simple, the oats soak up all the liquid and are soft and perfect in the morning. Be warned though, it doesn’t look like much, but it can be really filling. Overnight oats, a breakfast 12 hours in the making.

    We bought some oats the other day so we could try this for sehri 🙂 it’s a wonderful idea! Do you think we’d still get the safe effect with, say, 8 hours and not 12?

      Yes, definitely, you could even get away with 2 hours. It’s just nice to make it before bed and have it ready to go in the morning. Let me know how it goes 🙂 Hope it changes your mind about oats.
