Superfood Breakfast of Champions!

overnightoats

Overnight oats have been doing the digital rounds for some time now, but I wonder how many of you have actually tried them? They are the ultimate  portable “fast food” breakfast-or indeed they make a super satisfying snack at any time of day.

The variations are endless; peanut butter & banana, mango & mint or apple & cinammon. You can find more ideas to tickle your fancy from Monica at The Yummy Life here. Pictured above is my favourite combination-a superfood chocolatey feast that is like manna from heaven! (Well to me at least!)

I buy my Iswari superfoods at a local health food shop, but they (& more deliciousness!) are available online here. Iswari’s website is a wealth of information for anyone who is new to superfoods, & if you want more recipes I suggest you connect with them on facebook too.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup organic gluten-free oats
  • 1/4 cup Natures Path toasted buckwheat cereal (optional)
  • 1 tbs cacao nibs
  • 1/4 tbs bee pollen
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp raw cacao powder
  • 2 dates, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup of fruit (I used frozen berries & 2 diced strawberries)
  • Almond milk (to cover)

Now for the “tricky” bit! Throw all the ingredients in a mason jar, add enough almond milk to cover, replace the lid & shake! Pop it in the fridge & it’s ready to use in the morning (or after approx 4 hours if you can’t wait that long!)

You might be saying to yourself ” I don’t have all those ingredients”-No problem, just improvise and use what you have. No mason jar? Use any with a screw top lid. I find the dates are enough for me, but if you like things a little sweeter just add your favourite.

Enjoy!
