Overnight oats are becoming a hot items these days and it’s easy to see why. Quick, easy, delicious. This recipe can easily be made in a mason jar or container to take on the go. Assemble it the night before or even make enough for the entire week ahead of time.
I also bought kefir the other day! Kefir is a fermented milk drink like a thin yogurt that originates from eastern Europe. I’ve always wanted to try it because it’s full of probiotics which are happy bacteria that love your gut and do a whole bunch of wonderful things for you! Also good news for those with poor lactose tolerance, the fermentation of the milk breaks down a lot of the lactose so you may be able to tolerate it better than a glass of milk.
Ingredients (Adapt amount to suit your appetite)
1/3 cup Quick oats, certified wheat free if needed
2-3 tbsp Seeds (I used about 1 tbsp each ground flax, chia and hemp hearts)
1/2 cup Plain kefir or yogurt
1/2 cup Frozen or fresh berries or fruit
1 tsp Maple syrup, optional
Layer ingredients into bowl or container, mix it up a little.
Cover and it will soften overnight in the fridge. Enjoy!
