Discovering 'Overnight Oats' was a game-changer for me. I never have much time in the morning so I need breakfasts that are quick yet still delicious and nutritious. So, here you go, drum roll please.... Overnight Oats.
150g gluten free oats
300ml organic whole milk*
50g pumpkin seeds
50g sunflower seeds
1 tsp chia seeds
50g chopped cashews
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 ripe banana
50g raspberries and/or blueberries
1 tbsp honey (optional)
Stir together the oats, milk, seeds, vanilla extract and sliced banana, then carefully spoon it into a couple of Kilner or jam jars. Add the raspberries and/or blueberries and top with a squirt of honey. Pop the lids on and leave in the fridge for the mixture to thicken overnight.
Nutrition Tip - Try to include protein in the form of nuts and/or seeds, as by combining protein and carbohydrate it helps with balancing your blood sugar, keeping you fuller for longer (especially important at breakfast).
*To make this a super nutritious breakfast why not swap whole milk for a home-made nut milk, such as almond, hemp or brazil nut. Watch out for my forth-coming post of nut milks! Beware supermarket versions as they can have a high sugar content.
