baby overnight oats

Soaked oats is a simple breakfast that takes no time at all to put together. We like to soak a jar at the beginning of the week and then use this for bircher muesli, porridge or added to smoothies throughout the week. You can increase the nutrient-density by adding ground seeds, nut butters, egg and even desiccated organ powders. Once soaked, the oats will last 3-4 days in the fridge. Soaking oats helps to reduce phytic acid, which can inhibit the absorption of certain minerals. Rinsing after soaking can help remove any remaining phytic acid, however some people prefer not to rinse their soaked oats, as they believe it retains more nutrients and flavor. Ultimately, whether you rinse soaked oats depends on your personal preference!

This basic recipe can be customised with various flavour combinations to suit your preferences. It’s a nutritious and convenient breakfast option that you can prepare ahead of time.

Flavour combination ideas:

– Mixed berries, hemp seed, desiccated liver and vanilla 

– Apple, kefir, cinnamon and walnut

– Pumpkin puree, egg yolk and pumpkin spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and clove)

– Mango, cultured coconut yoghurt and chia seed

– Stewed plum, Greek yoghurt, cinnamon and ground hazelnut
