Overnight Oat

I have just started making my own overnight oat early this year. It's pretty late as many of you has been enjoying it  for many years. Well, late is better than none and I am really falling in love with it.

I'm not an oat person, it never come to my diet if require me to cook it and serve it warm. I simply don't like that texture but it's strange when it soak overnight in the fridge and serve cold that totally change my appetite. Adding dried fruit, nuts, fresh fruits and maple syrup that really change everything.

I really appreciate those bloggers who always publish their overnight oat that motivate me to try, or else I miss out something so yummy yet healthy diet in my life. Other than homemade yogurt, overnight oat is also become my daily diet no matter is breakfast lunch or dinner. Some of my friends tasted with good feedback and some even said it is like having dessert. As for me and my hubby, this quick meal very much fill our stomach with full of satisfaction.

How I made it:

To make 1 serving, mix 5 tablespoon rolled oat with 1/2 cup of full cream milk, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tsp maple syrup (optional). Keep Refrigerated overnight.

My favorite combo: 
1 teaspoon  peanut butter
1 dried chopped dried apricot
Some chopped dark chocolate
some chopped mix nuts
half chopped bananas

1 teaspoon nutella
1 teaspoon dried cranberries
some toasted almond
Some chopped cookies

1 teasppon praline paste
some toasted hazelnuts
some chopped dark chocolate
some fresh chopped bananas

Some dried fruits like raisin, cranberries, apricots, figs, dates etc
some fresh fruits like bananas, strawberry, blueberries, raspberries, kiwi etc

  1. I have not tried overnight oats as the texture looks too goopy and gluey to me. Only enjoyed oats in cookies! Maybe one day I should try it... better late than never, right?
