#KarlaCooks: Overnight Oats Recipe

11:40:00 AM

So lately I've been finding myself researching on different recipes, listing down ingredients and tweaking certain dishes to my liking. Yes, I've finally found myself a little bit more comfortable in the kitchen. And I'm not complaining (neither is my family).

Since breakfast is "the most important meal of the day," I wanted to try and make something that I had seen on numerous food sites and health blogs- Overnight Oats.

Now we don't have any fresh berries in this country (darn it all Huhu) so I had to find a way to replace them with something that was a little more readily available. Then came my love for desserts and pies. Fruits and desserts? Fruits and pies? APPLE PIE. So simple. So good.

I hope you guys enjoy this recipe- please feel free to change up a few of the ingredients to your liking. I have yet to try some bananas and caramel as well as strawberries and freshly whipped cream. Will be sure to let you guys know how those go. Also, you can replace my rolled oats for steel cut oats- apparently that may be better for this recipe but I like the rolled ones, they're smaller, softer and easier to eat for me. :)

Overnight Apple Oats
Makes 2-3 servings

1 cup Almond Milk (regular/skim milk is just as good, I just prefer the taste of almond milk)
85 grams of uncooked Rolled Oats (or Steel Cut)
2 tablespoons Maple syrup (or Honey/Agave syrup)
1 teaspoon Cinnamon (skip if you don't like cinnamon)
1 Granny Smith apple

First you need to soften the apple in some water. Peel and cut apple into chunks, place in saucepan with a dash of water. Simmer on low heat until soft and mushy. This may take up to 10 minutes.

Combine the rest of the ingredients in a bowl whilst the apple is cooking. Once the apple is ready, combine with the mixture and place in the fridge overnight.

That's it!

Now you have a deliciously filling and healthy breakfast the next day! :)
