A nutritious breakfast goes a long way.
Overnight Rolled Oats eliminate the need for processed foods, which are generally high in sugar. When we start the day off well, we are more likely to continue on that path!
Filled with healthy ingredients (rolled oats, chia seeds, and coconut milk), this bowl will alleviate the burden of "what's for breakfast?" especially on weekday mornings.
And the best part about this recipe is that there is no learning curve: EASY!
All you need to remember is the 1:1 ratio. This is equal to one part rolled oats to one part liquid.
Add a spoonful of the nutrient-dense chia seeds, then place your breakfast in the refrigerator.
Overnight rolled oats?
The term "overnight rolled oats" describes oatmeal that has been only soaked (not cooked) in milk for at least a few hours or overnight. Oats become soft and digestible after soaking without having to watch over them on the stove.
1 cup PCOS30 Rolled Oats
1 cup Coconut Milk
1 tbsp. PCOS 30 Organic Chia Seeds
Combine the rolled oats, coconut milk, chia seeds and in a jar or bowl. Stir to combine and cover with a lid or plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight.
When you're ready to serve, give the oats a quick stir.
NOTE: This can be refrigerated for up to 5 days, although it tastes the best when served within 2 days
Now comes the exciting part: toppings and mix-ins!
The key word here is creativity. So, whatever your heart wishes, go for it. But if you need some ideas, check out my fave taste combos below:
Fresh fruit: Make the most of seasonal fruits including blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, pears, and apples.
Dried fruit: Raisins, cranberries, goji berries, and chopped dates add chewy texture and fruity aromas. (Look for sugar-free)
Nuts and Seeds: Sliced almonds, chopped walnuts, hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, and toasted sesame seeds give a delicate crunch.
Spices: To spice things up, add PCOS30 Cinnamon (of course), nutmeg, turmeric, or ginger!
Nut Butter: Stir in or sprinkle with your preferred nut butter (I use PCOS30 Organic Peanut Butter, of course). It will also give you a protein boost.
Protein Powder: Still want more protein? Feel free to add protein powder or collagen powder. Or why not Shape in Shake!
Extra Flavor: Add coconut flakes, cacao nibs, or top with grated or shaved PCOS30 Dark Chocolate.
