This recipe encouraged me to start a food blog.
When I first made it and realized how tasty and easy it is to make, I wanted to share it. As it usually happens in life, it has been almost 2 years since then. I was eating the oats from time to time, and I wasn’t sharing. Now the time has come J If you haven’t tasted the overnight oats, you should definitely give it a try. There is no easier and tastier recipe. As a plus you have plenty of options to vary it each time so it doesn’t become boring! My favorite taste is apple-cinnamon
Ingredients (for 1 portion):
- 4 tsp rolled oats (15 g)
- 2 tsp quick oats (10 g)
- 1 tsp chia seeds (5 g)
- 2 tsp grained apple with cinnamon (20 g)
- 1 tsp plain yogurt (15 g)
- 1 tbsp maple syrup (20 g)
- 60 g milk
1. Take a jar or a box with a lid (I use few small jars from Ikea). You can make individual jars or make it in one big box and then just scoop the oats to a plate.
2. Add all the dry ingredients first, then add all the liquids and mix well, cover with a lid and put into the fridge for at least 12 hours. Enjoy your “made in advance” breakfast in the morning.
Important small details: I use two types of oats because of the texture: the quick oats will give us a creamy texture and the rolled oats the real texture. Instead of apples you can add any fruits, nuts, chocolate. In case you don’t eat dairy products, you can exclude the yogurt or use a plan base alternative, for example coconut yogurt. The milk can also be plant based, often I use almond milk, but it could be oat or coconut milk too. The sweetener should preferably be a liquid; instead of maple syrup you can use honey or stevia in drops.
