There has been lots of hype about overnight oats in recent years. We've tried many variations, some tasted more like desert than breakfast. We've also experimented with different containers. Our everyday overnight oats contain ingredients chosen to supplement our plant based diet - jumbo oats, chia seeds, ground flaxseeds, sultanas, cinnamon and plant milk.
1/2 cup jumbo oats
1 tbs chia seed
1 tbs ground flaxseed (linseed)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup plant milk
dried fruit we use sultanas
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl
Add plant milk and stir
Cover and leave overnight in the fridge
Chia seed - high in fibre and protein, omega 3 in plant form: alpha linolenic acid (ALA), rich in calcium and magnesium and trace elements such as manganese
Flax seeds - high in fibre, protein, lignans, phytoestrogens and omega 3
Cinnamon - contains cinnamaldehyde which has antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties. It is believed to regulats blood glucose, lower cholesterol, boost the immune system and can relieve pain
Oats - gluten-free whole grain, good source of soluble fibre, rich in manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, copper, iron, zinc, folate, vitamins B1 (thiamin), B5 (pantothenic acid) and smaller amounts of calcium, potassium, vitamin B6 (pyridoxine and vitamin B3 (niacin)
If you are not used to having large amounts of fibre in your diet you will need to start off using smaller amounts of chia and flaxseed.
