Overnight oats - base recipes
Overnight oats are such a great way of getting a really nutritious breakfast when you're in a rush / on the go / post-workout and don't have a lot of time to make it as the bulk is done the night before.
The base I use for most overnight oat recipes is:
125ml milk of your choice
75g greek yoghurt
And usually 1tbs chia seeds (helps thicken as well as nutritious)
This combo gives you quality carbohydrate for energy, protein and healthy fats / omega 3.
Mix well in a bowl or wide-necked jar and cover / seal to leave in the fridge overnight.
You can add whatever you like to this base and / or top with things in the morning and I will share a few that I like with you. Here is one for starters:
Add to the overnight mix:
handful of blueberries
1-2 tsp of honey or maple syrup to taste / sweeten
1 pinch of cinnamon
And then top in the morning when ready to eat with a few walnuts.
