Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are a fantastic grab-and-go breakfast. The recipe is easy to play with. You can adjust the Options depending on your preferences, such as energy (matcha powder), protein (nuts & seeds), and flavour (cacao, peanut butter).

This recipe makes one serving:

  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 Tbsp hemp hearts
  • 1 Tbsp ground flax seed
  • 1 Tbsp peanut butter or PB&Me peanut butter powder
  • 1 Tbsp chocolate-nut spread, like Nutella
  • 1 tsp matcha powder
  • 1 tsp cacao powder

Topping ideas (mix & match):

  • Fresh berries
  • Diced apples
  • Diced crystallized ginger
  • Shredded coconut
  • Cacao nibs
  • Carob chips or chocolate chips
  • Roasted peanuts
  • Chopped nuts or trail mix
  • Drizzle of chocolate or caramel sauce
  • etc.
