2 Healthy Overnight Oat Recipes: Banana Choco Chip & Apple Crumble

Overnight oat is basically a bowl of oat that you fill with liquid and let for soaking overnight in the fridge. In the morning, the oat will be soften and you will have a ready to eat breakfast waiting for you in your fridge. The great part about it is that most of the preparation can be done the night before and when you wake up in the morning all you need to do is to add some toppings. I find it really practical.

I used to think of oatmeal as blend and uninteresting, but that was before knowing how to prepare it the right way. I came across a few recipes online that made me want to give it another try and I ended up liking it! Since then, I have been experimenting overnight oat with different ingredients and I will share with you my 2 favourite combinations.

Banana Choco Chip

IMG_0880

Ingredients:

1/2 bowl of old fashioned rolled oat

1 cups of fresh coconut milk

2 tbsp of unsweetened raw cacao powder

Toppings:

1 sliced banana

2 tbsp hazelnuts

2 tbsp raw cacao nibs

chocomilk-and-oat

Directions:

Put the cacao powder into the fresh coconut milk (learn how to make it here!) and stir until it dissolves into the milk.

Pour the cacao flavoured coconut milk into the bowl of oat and put the mix in the fridge for the night.

In the morning, all you have to do is to add the toppings: 1 banana, some hazelnuts and raw cacao nibs. That’s it! :)

Note: You can also use carob powder instead of cacao powder if you want, or a mix of both. Or use cacao nibs or even cacao tablea but you will need to blend the milk for the consistency to be homogenous.

Ingredients:

1/2 bowl of old fashioned rolled oat

1 cups of fresh coconut milk

Toppings:

2 apples

2 tbsp raisins

2 tbsp slivered almonds

Cinnamon

milk-and-oat

Directions:

Pour the coconut milk over the oat and let it rest in the fridge overnight. You can choose to add the raisins at this point if you want them soft or wait until the morning if you want them more chewy.

Apple Sauce: Cut and cook the apples with a little bit of coconut oil. When the apples are soft, blend half of them in the blender and add the other half in chunk for more texture. When you are done preparing the apple sauce, store it in the fridge overnight. Alternatively, you can use a ready to eat chunky apple sauce (without added sugar or preservatives).
