Soaking oats has become one of my favourite things to do before bed. Yes. I'm that sad.
But seriously - it's amazing. You are guarenteeing yourself a happy morning.
Soaked oats are incredibly versatile and involve using jars (the cheapest kitchen staple). This recpie is ridiculously simple and perhaps my new favourite way to start the day.
I've found that it does actually make a difference what kind of oats you use. It's worth forking out the extra dollar for a pack of good steel-cut oats. The cheap Quaker ones just become like slop. (delicious slop...)
1/2 cup Oats
1 cup Organic Almond Milk
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup fresh blueberries (organic if you can)
To soak your oats, simply put the oats, almond milk, flaxseed and cinnamon into a jar, put the lid on and shake it up well! Refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, tip the divine contents in a pretty bowl and smother the berries on top.
Enjoy sitting by the window at home, or taking as a breakfast on the go. Yes - you will be glared by jealous people because you're eating a super cool breakfast out of a jar....in public.
