Overnight oats

Singlemade overnight oats

Overnight oats, it’s a simple idea: add some ingredients to oatmeal and leave to set overnight. The next day you’ll have a tasty and healthy breakfast waiting for you. It won’t come as a surprise that every health blogger and influencer has their own recipe, usually with a bunch of chia seeds or other superfoods. But most recipes are way too complicated! That’s why I’ve designed a super easy basic recipe that’s ready in 2 minutes and you can take in any direction you want. Underneath the recipe (which is just 2 sentences long), you’ll find some serving tips! 😉

Recipe Notes

* 50 grams of oats make up a basic recipe. If you’re used to big breakfasts, make it 70 grams. If you’re not, 40 grams will do.

** The little pinch of salt brings out the flavour. If you’re avoiding salt, just leave it out.

Tip: If you like it sweet, you can always add some agave syrup or honey. Take into account that soy milk is sweeter of itself than regular milk!

Kim took her overnight oats to work for an early shift. There were many envious onlookers!
Kim used almond milk, mixed seeds and blueberries. In the morning, she added a dash of coconut milk and grated coconut for some extra flavour. She doesn’t think it needs any additional sweetening!
And Kim adds: people who claim they don’t have time for breakfast in the mornings are full of it. This takes less time than making a sandwich and it’s a lot healthier. It even fills you for longer.
Yes, Kim’s a big oats fan! 🙂
