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.
Thanks so much for reading through this post. Love you all and I hope you enjoy the recipe.
Coffee Flavoured Overnight Oats
For the next day
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- 2 tablespoon of natural yogurt
- A handful of walnuts crushed
Mix your boiling water and instant coffee together.
Mix your oats, chai seeds, coffee, milk, honey, blackberries, cinnamon and chopped mint in a bowl, container or jar. Cover then leave in the fridge overnight.
The next day
When you are ready to eat your overnight oats, use the back of a spoon to slowly ripple (semi mix) the honey and yogurt together in a bowl.
Transfer your oats in a serving bowl. Put your rippled honey and yogurt on top and finally, sprinkle over your walnuts. Enjoy.
- As long as you have the right liquid to oats ratio, you can add whatever else you want. Different kinds of fruits, nuts, you could use almond milk instead, you could top it off with peanut butter. For the people who work out, you could add some of your protein powder. The list is endless.
