Hello Lovelies, I haven't shared a breakfast idea with you for a long time, so here it comes: chocolate overnight oats. Quick and easy to prepare, with just a few ingredients and lot of combination possibilities. I had the delicious autumn version with figs and the last summer berries. Figs and chocolate are an absolutely delicious combination, but you can vary according to your mood. Of course, bananas or any other fruit that you like to eat with chocolate also goes well.
I don't always have the time or muse to prepare a warm porridge in the morning (although it can be done quickly). But then I'm glad when I've thought of the overnight oats in the evening and they're already waiting in the fridge. I already have a version with apple and pumpkin here on the blog, if you prefer that.
And here is the recipe for the chocolate overnight oats:
Chocolate overnight oats
- 400 ml plantbased milk e.g. oat, soy
- 150 g oats
- 2 tsp date syrup or sugar
- 2 tsp chia seeds
- 2 tsp cacao
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Prise cardamom optional
- resh figs, berries, date syrup, coconut yogurt
- Mix all ingredients in a small bowl and place in the fridge overnight - mix again the next morning, fill into glasses and serve with toppings of your choice
- For the fig compote, peel the figs and heat them gently in a small saucepan
The overnight oats are prepared incredibly quickly and in the morning all you have to do is put your desired toppings on them and a healthy breakfast is ready. If you prefer it warm in the morning, you can, for example, put some warm milk foam on the oats, which is also very tasty.
Oats should best be on the menu every day, because they are a very good source of nutrients. They contain fiber, minerals (especially magnesium, phosphorus, iron and zinc) and valuable vitamins. And they are also just super tasty and versatile.
Do you like them so much, do you prefer to eat them as porridge or as overnight oats?
