This recipe is part of my Kick Start 2018 series.
As much as I love cooking meals in the evening, this kind of breakfast is my happy place. Personally, I think that leaving oats overnight is the most delicious way to eat them and everyone should give it a go. In this recipe I soak them in coconut water, which I think is a total gamechanger, but you could use whatever you liked – almond milk is my other favourite! I think I have cracked the ultimate overnight oats recipe with this one. I’ve deliberately left the quantities of ingredients vague because you can pimp it how you see fit – super oaty or sweet and fruity. It’s the most convinient breakfast, because it’s made the night before, and the next morning you can grab and go. The ultimate fast food! I often put mine in a portable breakfast bowl and take it to eat after the gym. Rather excitingly, I have also created a video recipe which you can check out here. Welcome to the world of overnight oats!Ingredients (Serves 1)
- Rolled Porridge Oats
- Coconut Flakes
- Frozen Berries (I use Blueberries and Strawberries)
- Coconut Water
- Fresh Fruit to serve (I use Banana)
- Combine the oats, coconut flakes, cinnamon, berries and coconut water in a bowl. Cover and leave in the fridge overnight.
- The next morning, scatter with raisins, fresh fruit and a final sprinkling of cinnamon.
Here’s an idea…
Overnight oats get better with time. If you make a big batch of this and stick it in the fridge, it will keep for 3 or 4 days, and taste better every single morning. It’s the most convinient breakfast ever!
