Overnight Oats

Over on Instagram overnight oats are all over the place and it isn't hard to see why, they are full of fibre and keep you fuller for longer.

I have been adding lots of seeds and nuts for essential fatty acids including Omega 3, including chia seed and then a mix seed sprinkle which has pumpkin, sunflower, linseed and sesame seeds as well as some almonds.

To that I have been adding some cacao and honey and mixing with almond milk, then in the morning adding some raspberries.

I have been using oat bran, this stuff is really finely milled but you could use just your standard porridge oats or rolled oats.

Oatbran, really high in fibre

Add in the mixed seeds

Chia seed and almonds

Add in the almond milk and honey and stir
Leave in the fridge overnight and voila...

Serve in the morning with a few extra seeds or fruit

You can add in what you like, if you fancy dried fruit add this in, banana, strawberries anything goes really.

I really like these cold oats, I do sometimes microwave for about 20 seconds to take the edge of the coldness or take out a short while before I want to eat them. But it is entirely up to you, they are really tasty and I have even got my husband hooked now.
