Finally I had to see for myself what the overnight oats fuss is all about, so I made this fully vegan fruity jar with oats and flax seed. After tasting, I feel that this dish never could replace warm porridge for me, but it does make a nice change for the summer especially. I will also consider making smaller jars and taking them to work with me.
Here are the ingredients I used for my first ever overnight oats:
1 cup oat flakes
3 tbsp milled flax seed
2 tbsp blueberry powder
½ tsp sugar
1 cup almond milk
Mix the dry ingredients in a mason jar. My jar was maybe a bit too large for one person's breakfast and I couldn't finish it in one go. Add the milk and mix. Chop some strawberries on the top. Close the jar and let it rest in the fridge overnight. Enjoy it the next morning. I read somewhere that closed the jars would keep for three days in the fridge, but I haven't tested that myself. It would be quite handy, though if they do.
Have you experimented with overnight oats and what did you think?
