This quick and easy breakfast is made the night before and is ready to bring energy and nutrients to start your day.
A past classmate of mine introduced me to the soaked oats technique. Soaking any grain decreases phytic acid and increases the absorption of nutrients in the body.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Yield 1-2 servings
- 1 cup oats (steel cut or rolled)
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup (or raw honey)
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- ½ cup blueberries (or fruit of choice)
Layer ingredients in a jar: oats, milk, maple syrup, seeds, then berries. Allow to soak overnight. Oats can be eaten from the fridge or cooked. To increase the nutrient availability cook oats for 5 minutes.
