Nutritional Information without post fridge toppings
Take a half cup of oats and pop them in a glass, mug, bowl OR jar (if you’re feeling funky!).
If you wish you can also mix in a tablespoon of chia seeds for extra nutritional gain. (They’re full of fibre, protein, omega-3 fatty acids as well as essential vitamins and minerals)
Dollop a tablespoon of low-fat yoghurt on top as well as a tablespoon of honey.
Pour some milk over the mixture and stir well so that the oats and seeds are fully immersed in the liquid and there are no lumps of dry oats left at the bottom.
Place the glass, mug, bowl OR jar that you have decided on into the fridge. The mixture will turn in to a lovely pudding-like consistency after about 2-3 hours but ideally, you want to leave it in the fridge overnight – thus the name ‘overnight oats’!
Once cooled, you can add a topping of your choice. We chose mixed frozen berries (thawed of course!), pecans and cashew nuts for a little crunch! Yummy!
