I know it appears every blogger has her own recipe for overnight oats, but when I mentioned my delicious ‘super food’breakfast on ‘My Fitness Pal’ last week I was surprised by 3 requests for the recipe..So I thought I would share a round up of my 3 favourite way’s to enjoy overnight oats.
As a generalisation I measure out:
50g Greek yoghurt (Fat Free)
1 Teaspoon of honey
150ml Almond Milk
But feel free to tweak this to work with your own personal macros..
Peanut Butter & Strawberry Oats
1x Teaspoon of reduced fat peanut butter
6 sliced strawberries
Bounty Bar Oats
1x Teaspoon coco powder
10g chunks milk/dark chocolate (chopped into tiny chunks)
1x Tablespoon shredded coconut
*I exchange the plain greek yoghurt for a coconut version and heat the oats in the morning so I get little pools of melted chocolate
5g Pumpkin seeds
5g Chia Seeds
15g Protein Powder
