Want to start your morning off right, but don’t have time? Try these superfood overnight oats! Easy to prepare the night before, delicious in the morning.
Happy Monday! It’s the start of a new week and it’s February! How crazy is this? Not to mention that I’m turning a year older in just a few days already…It’s snowing and cold outside, but there are days where I still crave a cooler breakfast – I wouldn’t say ice cold, but for sure not hot 😉 Overnight oats are the perfect compromise here for me, because they are about room temperature by the time I eat them. I simply take them out of the fridge right after I get up and by the time I have worked out, showered, made my tea, they had time to warm up a bit! Also, they are the ideal breakfast for busy days, because you can even take them with you on the train or bus if you have a trip in front of you and not that much time at home. I make my own little version of superfood loaded overnight oats and I figured, I could share my ‘recipe’ with you guys!
They are loaded with nutrients – antioxidants from blueberries, vitamin A,C,E from the goji berries, chlorophyll and loads of other nutrients from the barley grass, omega 3 fatty acids from the chia and all the goodness from the oats and almonds. Pretty loaded for such a little jar of food, right? So let’s jump right in to the recipe!
Superfood Overnight Oats
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp powdered tiger nuts
- 1 tsp barley grass
- 1 pinch dried ginger
- 1 handful almonds
- 1/2 banana, sliced
- 1-2 tbsp goji berries
- 1 handful blueberries
- rice milk
- The evening before you want to eat the oats, take a little bowl and mix oats, chia seeds, tiger nuts, ginger and almonds together – add as much rice milk as you need to thoroughly soak all those ingredients.
- Let them sit for about 15 minutes and add some more rice milk, because they oats will have soaked up a lot more moisture and also the chia seeds will have started to gel up.
- Now you have two options: a) Put a lid on the bowl or put this mixture in a jar and put it in the fridge as it is and add the barley grass, blueberries, banana and goji berries in the morning. b) Add 1/2 of the oats in a jar, mix the barley grass powder in with most the leftover oats and create a little nice layering effect. You can also add the fruits in if you want.
Note: I usually soak my goji berries in some water as well, I prefer their taste and texture better this way. I simply put them in their own little container and add them in the next morning.
Have a lovely week guys, I’m quite busy with working on new exciting projects for this blog, my master’s thesis, meeting up with people I haven’t seen for months and also keeping up with working out!
