Overnight Oat & Kefir Parfait

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.

Overnight Kefir and Oat Parfait

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

Directions

Layer ingredients into bowl or container, mix it up a little.

Cover and it will soften overnight in the fridge.  Enjoy!
