Hmmm so how’s 2017 going for everyone? Not bad for us this end, although losing a dear friend has been a blow. However this is not a post intended on depressing you all, on the contrary the year is still young, opportunities are a plenty and my popcorn machine is on standby for me to pull up my chair and watch the comedy/ horror/ disaster movie that is Trump ( I’m childish and still snigger at his name) going into the Oval Office.
I’m sorry, I’m sorry I’m supposed to be keeping you all uplifted, well you will need energy to do this…..and this breakfast is perfect for that. I love ( gluten free) oats, they are filling, good for you, and versatile. What’s not to like?
The best thing about over night oats is that there is no right or wrong way to eat them, any flavour or combination work, they can be as clean ( or dirty??) as you want them to be, and can be made the night before. This is the real winner for me, as it saves precious time on that early morning rush….
- 1/2 cup rolled oats ( or gluten free oats)
- 1/2 cup milk of choice
- 1/2 cup of yoghurt or choice
- 1-2 tsp chia seeds ( optional)
- I dessert spoon raisins
- Sweeten with honey or maple syrup or Apple juice ( to suit your palate )
- Topping of choice
Mix the oats, milk, yoghurt, chia and sweetner together and leave for 6-8 hours in the fridge.
In the morning add to a jar ( or bowl) and have fun with your toppings.
