Overnight oats that you will love for its simplicity and goodness

Overnight oats has had an important place in my morning routine. Its goodness and simplicity allows to prepare them very quickly in the evening.

It takes like five minutes. Honestly!

so  you can enjoy them the next morning, particularly when you are running out of time because your alarm clock did not wake you up on time. It has happened to me recently on few occasions.

I do not feel guilty at all. It looks like my body needed more sleep. That’s all 🙂

What will you need to make them:

*1/2 cup of oats (I went for spelt ones)

*3 tbsp of chia seeds

*1 tbsp of cocoa powder

*3/4 cup of plant milk of your choice (I chose rice milk)

*1tsp of maple syrup (optionally)

*1 sliced banana

 

Directions:

Simply add oats and chia seeds to a bowl, then cocoa powder and pour the plant milk. Throw some banana slices and  add maple syrup and Voila!  Throw the bowl in the fridge and indulge in its goodness in the morning!

 

What a treat! Your body will be grateful.

Omm my Oats

After years of eating sandwiches for my breakfasts, oats have eventually made their place in my bowl. I usually have them with rice or coconut milk ( plant milk – yes!).   I sometimes can not believe I did not eat them at all! As far as I remember I always hated milk as a kid and was avoiding it as often as I could. (Well, sometimes my grandma sneaked it by adding some cocoa powder to it.) And then milk and oats – that couple did not look right for me, probably due to my lack of feelings for milk.

Nowadays, my morning bowl consists of gluten free oats, cocoa powder, nut butter and whatever fruit and nut I have a liking for.

This morning oaties:

*5 tablespoons of gluten free oats ( I just put boiling water and left them set aside for 5 minutes)

*1 tablespoon of cocoa powder

*some goji berries

*1 kiwi

*some pecans

I always have energy and I am actually happy when I look at it. My breakfasts are the fuel for the great start of the day.  I am so happy I managed to change my morning food. I am joyful about being vegetarian. I rejoice in preparing new dishes, experimenting with new recipes. Although I still have a lot to learn about nutrition, I have become number one fan of my body, for it is a vessel that carries me every single day and it is my job to take care of it daily! 🙂

I sometimes do not know how I do it yet I do it – I get up early and I am still leaving home too late. So I am extremely grateful to have learnt about overnight oats which are life saver for me! They are quick to prepare in the morning as you simply eat them cold or like me warm them up a bit. 🙂

Here is my today’s recipe:

  • 1/2 cups of oats
  • 1 tbsp. of cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp of chia seeds
  • 1 tsb of maca
  • 1 cup of rice milk
  • 1 khaki fruit

Mix all ingredients except for khaki fruit and leave it for the night.

Enjoy!
