Prepare ahead for busy mornings, with this easy recipe for Chocolate Overnight Oats
1/4 cup raw oats (or up to 1/3 cup for a bigger portion)
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1 Tbsp flax seeds
1 Tbsp sunflower seeds
1 heapted tsp raw cacao
1 tsp raw honey or maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract or paste
Pinch of salt and cinnamon
1/2 grated apple or sliced banana
Small handful chopped raw nuts, for topping
1/4 cup warm water
1/2 cup milk of your choice (almond, rice milk, coconut or cow’s milk)
Layer the dry ingredients into a medium-sized glass jar and mix well.
Add in the fruit and mix gently, then add in the chopped nuts.
Pour in the warm water and milk, put the lid on and place in the fridge overnight.
You can then transfer the ingredients to a bowl the next morning and add extra liquid if necessary.
Alternatively, eat greedily straight out of the jar, again adding in extra liquid if desired.
