Recipe: The No-cook Overnight Oatmeal
No time to prepare breakfast in the morning? Try this recipe! Prepared in minutes the night before, just grab and go in the morning.
(Though ideally you should be sitting down and enjoying your meals in a relaxed setting for optimal digestions... sorry, just had to remind you!)
Why is this a nutritious breakfast?
Oats are nourishing to the nervous system and help balance you in time of stress. As a side bonus, the protein in this power packed breakfast will keep your blood sugar balanced throughout the morning and leads to less cravings and snacking at night! Plus, lots of antioxidants and nutrients from the berries. Oh, and its gluten and dairy free too!
3/4 cup rolled oats (Bob's Red Mill is Gluten free)
1/4 shredded coconut (unsweetened)
2 Tbsp goji berries
1/4 cup of chopped almonds
2 Tbsp hemp or pumpkin seeds
1 cup of unsweetened Almond, Soy or Coconut milk
1 Tbsp cinnamon
A squeeze of raw honey or raw agave to taste, if desired.
For a Chocolate variation: add 1 tsp raw cacao nibs.
For a Vanilla variation: add 1/2 tsp natural vanilla extract.
For a Mixed berry Variation: add fresh raspberries or blueberries in the morning.
For a Nutty Variation: add pecans, walnuts and cashews.
For a Tropical Variation: add dried pineapple, fresh mango.
For a Fall Harvest Variation: add a Tbsp pumpkin puree, dash of nutmeg and clove & chopped walnuts.
For a Warming Winter Variation: add dried cranberry, chopped pecans, dash of cardamom & candied ginger.
In a Mason jar, place all dry ingredients and give them a stir.
Cover and leave in fridge overnight.
Add a little extra milk in the morning if you like it more liquid.
Yes, its as simple as that!
