I love oats! I eat them most mornings for breakfast, however recently I was getting a bit bored of having simply “Porridge” every morning. It’s like anything that you do too much, it eventually gets boring. So I did a bit of digging around for some recipes to see what alternatives based around oats I could use. Welcome to Overnight Oats. The premise of the recipe is quite simple. It’s no bake and they are prepped overnight in the fridge.
I’ve always been a fussy eater and I’ll be the first to admit I have a REAL problem eating food in ways I’m not used to. For example I can’t eat cold Pizza it freaks me out, my brain has a little fit screaming “it’s meant to be hot this is blasphemy” and I can’t eat it. I was initially worried that I wouldn’t be able to eat this as my whole life I’ve only every eaten oats in one way, Hot!!!! To my surprise and after sitting there for 5 mins staring at it, I really really enjoyed it. Anyway please see below for the recipe:
|Overnight Oats Recipe|
|1/3 Cup Milk||2 Teaspoons Honey|
|1/4 Cup Rolled Oats||1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon|
|1/4 Cup Greek Yogurt||1/4 Cup Fruit of Choice|
|2 Teaspoons Chia Seeds|
Don’t forget you can substitute things if you need to. For example milk can be swapped out for your choice; Almond Milk, Soya etc. I find this breakfast is a great addition to my Pre-Workout, plenty of slow release carbs, quite filling and just all around good for you.
