Oats have been my life for as long as I can remember. They make a perfect breakfast option for anyone at any age and you can make them as interesting as you like. Can I get an Amen! My chocolate overnight oat jar is to die for, and my favourite overnight oat jar flavour.
You can eat oats, hot or cold, sweet or savoury. They are a great source of fibre and keep you fuelled up and ready to take on the day. I don’t have time in the morning to faff around cooking it on slow heat with milk so I soak them overnight so they are soft and ready to eat in the morning. Don’t get me wrong, I do love warm oats, especially in the Winter. But now that it is Summer, cold oats are my first breakfast choice.
What oats to use?
You can make them any flavour you want. Here is my basic overnight oat jar recipe. Have you seen my previous matcha pudding and granola recipe? This is another great breakfast option.
Basic overnight oat jar recipe
1- Half a cup of oats
2-3/4 cup of almond milk/coconut or oat milk
3-1 teaspoon of chia seeds
4-1 teaspoon of ground flaxseeds
5-1 teaspoon of honey/agave syrup
6-Half teaspoon of cinnamon powder
Now you can add any flavour to it:
- 1 teaspoon of cacao powder
- 1 teaspoon of matcha powder
- 1 teaspoon of peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon of chocolate chips
- A pinch of Himalayan salt
- 1/2 an apple cut up
You can top with whatever fruit you like. I like the combination of banana and strawberries with a sprinkle of nuts, sunflower seeds and coconut shredding.
