Welcome to my new series, may I present my latest obsession, overnight oats!
Okay, as usual I’m hugely behind the food curve, (see Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding about 6 months too late!) but now I’m seriously making up for lost time.
I am a great believer that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but the best days for me start with something oaty and yoghurty. So when I discovered overnight oats I got myself into a happy food rut.
Like a perfect bowl of porridge, with the added advantage of not having to get up early in the morning to cook, you mix them up before bed and the next morning you top them with whatever you like.
In this series I’m going to show you a few of my favourite toppings and attempt to persuade you to share in my obsession!
So let’s start with the basic recipe (only 3 ingredients!!) and maybe throw on some pomegranate seeds and maple syrup.
Basic Overnight Oats
Makes 1 serving
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cold water
1/2 natural yoghurt
Before bed, stir the ingredients together in a cereal bowl, cover the bowl with a plate and pop it in the fridge until morning. You’re done!
If you like your oats a little runnier throw in some more water next time.
Stay tuned for toppings!
