Overnight Oats inspired by Bali.

I often ran out with time, or just felt overwhelmed about the thought to cook some breakfast for myself.

On those days when I worked out of home in my other office, I lacked some yummy, filling, but easy to grab a meal, that would not be bread or just a piece of fruit.

But I couldn't find what I was looking for until one day, in the beautiful restaurant in Bali, I had the best overnight oats of my life.

Before that, I thought I would have it, that it would be like a soggy, slimy meal, without nay flavour or texture...

I couldn't be more wrong.

So here they are, my Bali inspired overnight oats.

Bali inspired Overnight Oats

I tweaked them tpo my likinig and I would encourage you to do the same.

Use seasonal fruit, blend them with your favourite spices and use what's available around you.

Here are my favourite combos:

  • Mashed banana, cinnamon and PB

  • Cacao powder, frozen raspberies and almonds

  • Turmeric, vanila and cacao nibs with seasonal fruit

  • Vanilla, cinnamon and salted caramel protein

  • Dates, walnuts and coconut

Often I topp up my overnight oats with Chia seed pudding, Chia jam or plain yogurt.

Ingredients: Makes about 4 portions

1 cup of rolled oats (you may use rolled and quick oats too)

1 banana mashed

4 tsps chia seeds

3 cup of plant-based or organic milk

1 tsp of cinnamon (helps balance blood sugar)

4 heaped tsp of natural yogurt/coconut yogurt or cottage cheese

OPTIONAL: 1 tbs flax meal /2 scoops of protein powder

Method: Place banana, milk, chia seeds and cinnamon in a blender and blend until smooth.

Into an airtight container place oats and any other flavourings or toppings you like (dates/ nuts/ cacao nibs/cacao powder etc.)

Mix well.

Pour over blended mixture and yogurt if using and stir well.

Place in a fridge for at least 2 hours or the best overnight.

You may serve cold or warm it up in a separate bowl, topped up with yogurt, chia pudding, PB, fresh fruit or anything else you like. TIP: You may choose to make them in small mason jars (or recycled jam jars) and then top them up with anything you like to create quick snacks to work or a busy time at home.
