Today we have another recipe from our breakfast series. Overnight oats are a great base for a healthy breakfast. I like to use it from time to time when it has to be quick in the morning and I don’t feel like bread.

If you don’t have much time for breakfast in the morning, I can simply stir together a portion of overnight oats the night before. But you can also take them with you if you really don’t have enough, in the morning. With a few toppings, such as fruit, berries, maple syrup, strawberry sauce or honey, you can give the whole thing a very tasty touch, just the way you like it.
The basic ingredients for the overnight oats
- 100 g rolled oats, 80 g fine, 20 g pithy
- 200 ml milk/soymilk/almond milk
Ingredients to spice things up
- Cocoa nibs
- chocolate flakes
- maple syrup
- Strawberry sauce
- 1 tsp flaxseed
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 1 tsp hemp seeds
- apple pieces

that’s how it works
Put the oatmeal in a jar or bowl with a lid and pour the milk over it. If you use chia seeds, add more liquid as they will swell up. Restores the Glasminden refrigerator
The next morning you have a great basis for your breakfast. Since the overnight oats are a bit bland on their own, you should mix in a few tasty extras, such as fruits and berries, nuts and maybe something sweet. Your healthy breakfast is ready.

A kitchen tip:
To make breakfast even more fun, I’m planning a special corner for my new kitchen, where I’ll always have the various toppings and ingredients for my breakfast and my smoothies ready. Incidentally, this also means that I tend to reach for a healthy snack in the afternoon and not for the biscuits!
