This blueberry overnight oats recipe not only takes exactly 1 minute to make, it’s also totally creamy and decadent.
This is currently my favourite way to make overnight oats. I have been loving it so much lately! Blueberries are amazing for many reasons, including the fact that they are very rich in antioxidants & vitamins and they are very low in calories. They also taste like a dream!
This easy recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and raw vegan. It’s also a well balanced breakfast! It contains healthy essential fats, good carbs and plant based protein.
Nothing like a well balanced, healthy, delicious breakfast that prepares itself while you are sleeping!
Why are soaked oats better than cooked oats?
Soaked grains are easier to digest when soaked and therefore the nutrients in them are more easily absorbed.
Because… when you soak (culture) grains, the antinutrients, phytates and hard-to-digest parts in the grains are broken down.
Why chia oats?
I like to add chia seeds to my oats pre-soak because they are full of healthy fats & protein and are so delicious when soaked. Seeds are also easier to digest when soaked just like grains.
-1/2 cup rolled oats
-1/2 cup water
-2 teaspoons chia seeds
-1/2 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
-2 teaspoons nut butter (almond, cashew or macadamia)
-1 teaspoon ground vanilla powder/ pure vanilla extract
-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
-2 teaspoons 100% pure maple syrup (or to taste)
-mix the oats, water, chia seeds, blueberries, nut butter, vanilla & cinnamon together in a jar and stir until well blended
-place a lid on the jar and pop into the fridge to soak overnight (at least 8 hours)
-once soaked, add the pure maple syrup to personal taste
-eat and enjoy!
-1 teaspoon nut butter (I like macadamia or almond nut butter)
-1 tablespoon raw nuts (I like cashew nuts or almonds)
How to eat overnight oats:
-eat out of the jar with a spoon
-pop the sealed jar into your bag with a spoon and eat on-the-go
-pour soaked oats into a bowl and eat
-warm soaked oats on the stove in a pot (like you would cook regular oats) for a few minutes until heated
