I guest posted for Lubna over at Yummy Food (kitchenflavours.net) for her event Joy from Fasting to Feasting. Joy from Fasting and Feasting brings together Muslim food bloggers around the world, a successful event in it’s 7th year.
I made Date and Almond Overnight Oats, this is so delicious, great for suhoor keeping you feeling full and nourished throughout the day. Check out the full recipe and post here or the basic recipe below.
Date and Almond Overnight Oats (serves 2)
-1 cup rolled oats
-1 1/2 cups milk (I prefer almond milk)
-4 medjool dates (pitted and chopped)
-2 tablespoons chopped almonds
In a bowl, add in oats, almonds, dates and milk. Give it a good mix and set aside for a few hours or overnight.
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.
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.
