OVERNIGHT OATS – 3 WAYS!!!

by in Recipes July 12, 2018

I made this Overnight Oats Base Recipe and so far have had them for three mornings with three different toppings  –  all healthy and delicious.

They make a very quick and easy breakfast as once you make the base recipe, it lasts well in the fridge and all you have to do is add your toppings to them in the morning.   The oats give you sustained energy through the morning, the pumpkin and chia seeds add protein, the chopped date adds sweetness, the berries, apple and pear provide lots of fibre and nutrients.  This amount of base recipe is enough for four mornings for me, as I find it quite filling and this breakfast keeps me feeling satisfied all morning.  (The oats will absorb the coconut yoghurt and the coconut milk, so if you find that they have become too thick, just add a little more milk).

BASE RECIPE:

  • 100g organic Porridge Oats (use Gluten Free Oats for a gluten free version)
  • 50g Goji Berries
  • 3 Medjool dates, chopped into small pieces
  • 250mls Coconut Yoghurt
  • 150mls Coconut Milk (from a carton – I like the Rude Health brand)

 

TOPPING 1:

  • 1/2 sliced Banana
  • handful of Strawberries, halved
  • 1 dessertspoon of Chia Seeds
  • 1 dessertspoon of Pumpkin Seeds

 

 

TOPPING 2:

  • Handful of Blueberries
  • Handful of Raspberries
  • 1 dessertspoon of Chia Seeds
  • 1 dessertspoon of Pumpkin Seeds

 

 

TOPPING 3:

  • 1/2 Apple chopped
  • 1/2 Pear chopped
  • Handful of Blueberries
  • 1 dessertspoon of Chia Seeds
  • 1 dessertspoon of Pumpkin Seeds

 

There are so many more variations you could make, chopped pineapple, mango, papaya, various nuts – just add your favourites!!

I used this coconut yoghurt and found it nice and creamy with a good flavour.
