Raisin, almond & flax oats… prepared while you sleep!
It’s so easy to make this yummy breakfast… all that you have to do is mix the ingredients together in a jar and leave them to soak overnight.
A healthy breakfast that is gluten-free, refined sugar-free and dairy-free.
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 flax seeds and oats?
I like to add flax 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 dry rolled oats
-1/2 cup filtered water
-2 teaspoons flax seeds
-1/8 cup raw almonds
-1/4 cup raisins (unsweetened, sulfate & oil free)
-1 teaspoon cinnamon
-1/2 teaspoon ground vanilla powder
-1 or 2 teaspoons raw honey (to taste)
-mix the oats, water, flax seeds, vanilla powder & cinnamon together in a jar
-add the raw almonds and raisins and mix into the oats
-place a lid on the jar and pop into the fridge to soak overnight (at least 8 hours)
-once soaked (in the morning) add some raw honey to personal taste (1 or 2 teaspoons)
-eat and enjoy!
How to eat overnight oats:
-eat out of the jar with a spoon
-serve in a bowl
-pop the sealed jar into your bag with a spoon and eat on-the-go
-warm soaked oats on the stove in a pot (like you would cook regular oats) for a few minutes until heated
-1 or 2 teaspoons nut butter (I like to use almond or cashew nut butter)
