When it comes to simple cooking, I am a huge fan. Just between you and I, I have a secret, organised compartment in my cookbook just for simple recipes. But simple doesn't have to mean boring. Because I don't ever put boring food on my table. If you are anything like me, you love cooking and take huge pride in what you produce. But sometimes, opting for a more simple recipe is not only great but required for our sanity. No judgment here - I totally understand!
I find simplifying even one meal a day helps tremendously. I always try to plan this for when I know I'm going to be busiest. For most of us, that's in the morning. Hence why I came up with this go to recipe. Let's take a look at how to go about making your own overnight oats.
To make this recipe, you are going to need 5 minutes, yes, just 5 minutes! You will also need ingredients, a whisk, a bowl, and jar to pop your finished oats into. An added bonus for this recipe - next to no cleaning required after preparation! Also, no cooking needed!
This recipe is packed with goodness, because you know I would never bring you something that isn't good for you. In this recipe, we have almond butter, almond milk, crushed almonds, chia seeds, dark grapes, cinnamon, and of course, oats. I know what you are thinking - Wow, that's a lot of almonds! But it's okay because we have just the right amount. And almonds are so good for us! They contain a high source of protein, healthy fats, fibre, magnesium, and vitamin E. Among many other things, this recipe also gives us a good source of Omega-3 from the inclusion of chia seeds.
Our bodies need each of these every day to function. So why not start your day off on a good note and feed some essential vitamins and minerals into your system?
Overnight oats with black grapes and almonds are the perfect breakfast because they are:
Overnight oats are made, as you might guess, overnight. So this means you make them the night before you want to eat them. Which is great for a smooth morning to follow - simply pull your pre-made oats out of the fridge and eat them. I would recommend not storing your oats for more than 24-48 hours, as they may go super soggy (gross). This recipe will make 2 serves but if you are after a single serve, simply half the ingredients listed below.
