If you need an easy breakfast that you can make ahead of time and have ready in the morning, you should try overnight oats! For a breakfast to look forward to, try this recipe made with strawberries. Just soak the ingredients overnight, and enjoy in the morning. No cooking required! Strawberries are in season now and are delicious!
This recipe makes four servings, so it's great to prepare for the work week.
1 1/2 cups Oats (quick)
1 1/2 cups Organic Coconut Milk
2 tbsps Chia Seeds
1 tbsp Maple Syrup
3/4 cup Water
2 cups Strawberries (sliced)
1/4 cup Hemp Seeds
1. Combine oats, coconut milk, chia seeds and maple syrup together in a glass
container. Add water and stir well to evenly mix. Cover and store in the fridge overnight.
2. Remove from fridge. Use single-serving size jars (250 mL or 500 mL in size) and place a
few spoonfuls of the oat mixture in the bottom of each. Then add a layer of diced
strawberries followed by a sprinkle of hemp seeds. Repeat until all ingredients are used
up. Store in the fridge up to 4 days or until ready to eat (cold or hot).
