Coffee Flavoured Overnight Oats

Props to the person who came up with the idea of overnight oats. An easy and great way to start your day. I had a quick scroll through the few breakfast recipes I have done so far for this blog. I noticed that they are all recipes involving eggs. Now don’t get me wrong, I love eggs for breakfast, I have them all the time. But there is plenty more out there when it comes to having a good breakfast. In case you don’t know, the idea of overnight oats is to prepare an oat mixture in advance so that they are ready for breakfast the next morning.

I didn’t just want to make this recipe so that people could wake up to a good tasting breakfast. I wanted to make a recipe that would give a great kick-start to peoples morning. But I have a question for you guys. So if you’re reading this, I ask that you answer this question in the comments section below if you have the time because I would really like to know about this. Do you know people that don’t usually have breakfast? Are you one of those people? I notice it all the time and I think “how?”. If I don’t have breakfast in the morning I will be super hangry (hungry and angry) throughout the day and I will eat like a horse at lunch. But I just wanted to know if I am the only one who sees this.

A couple of cool little updates before we move on to the recipe. First, some of you may know that I have been working on a collaboration with a group of other bloggers. I challenged them to create a recipe that involves the pulled pork I posted earlier on, and then publish it on their blogs. They have been doing such a fabulous job and I can’t wait to show you guys. So far, five bloggers have uploaded their recipes, and now there is just one (possibly 2 more) blogger left. I think it will be a very valuable post for you guys so stay tuned.

Also, me and my brother have started a new Instagram page together just for general photography. Landscapes, portraits, macro photography you name it. Ever since I started food photography I have expanded that passion and it has been an absolute blast to experiment with different kinds of photos. So feel free to check out our Instagram page @hortensedigital_hd if you are interested in that.

  • I am guilty of being one of those people who has skipped breakfast. In the past. I do not do that anymore. I did it a long time, and it actually made me very unhealthy, because it didn’t really make me hungry until at night. And so I was very unhealthy for a long time, because they always say you need to eat most of your food during the day, winding down to the night and eating less food for when you use the least amount of calories. But it just happened. I had a bad habit of not eating until late at night, and so I wasn’t really hungry until the afternoon. Luckily, I realized it wasn’t working for me. BTW, I like this coffee flavored oats. I’ve actually done that a few times(put coffee in my oats)! And really nice pics inviting pics, as always!

    • Indeed, it is easy to get caught up in the habit of eating a lot at night, a good eating pattern is a great way to put on fewer calories. Thank you for your comment Dave (:

  • Love this idea! I often make overnight oats, but never thought to add my coffee to it. Definitely trying this! To answer your question about breakfast-skippers: I used to skip breakfast back in high school, but that was 15 years ago. Once I started partaking again, I never looked back! I get hangry if I skip it now because my body is used to eating on a certain schedule. I do know others that still skip breakfast though. They’re into fasting and only eating once a day and they choose midday or evening to eat their one meal. They’ve been doing it long enough though that their bodies are used to it and it doesn’t seem to phase them. No thanks, I prefer to have multiple smaller meals throughout the day.

    • Hope you enjoy them!! (:
      Ahhh interesting. I have also heard a few even say that fasting is good for you. But it ain’t my way of doing things. A lot of the people I know who skip breakfast complain how hungry they are before lunch. I am definately with you on eating smaller meals throughout the day so you don’t end up getting super hangry. Thank you so much for your comment and keep up the good work your doing (:
