When you get tired of a (forced by doctor) diet it’s time to get crafty to find a compromise of swapping the traditional morning eggs and Wasa bread for something sweeter – like overnight oats.
Been more than a month that I am allowed just to stick to some selected things and boy I miss my overnight oats and morning oats and some granola and some pancakes with home made fresh strawberry jam..mmm, and some orange juice and fruits…mmm fruits – I miss fruits. sweet temptations. BUT, sticking to my diet and being good, but yesterday had enough and said will try to find a compromise and make my overnight oats this time giving some twist to them – adding some soy milk and chia seeds.
Result was absolutely nice, (super sweet as been skipping everything sweet for so long time that even soy milk was 10 x sweeter than usual) but truly delicious. No official picture, as was too early to get all snappy and everything, but the result is the same as in pictures – good look and yummy.
Here is my ingredients for you to try yourself.How to make your own overnight oats with chia seeds
In a bowl or a mason jar, combine soy milk, oats, chia seeds and some sprinkles of shredded coconut. Stir well and cover with plastic wrap or a lid. Refrigerate overnight. (or for bigger chia seeds – refrigerate for 24h).
Check out Kate’s Creamy Cashew Overnight oats recipe as well. I am sure I will give a try myself as soon as back on track in my regular eating.
For some additional chia seeds recipes I am planning to explore the pudding option and I believe the one from Arful Desperado looks pretty irresistible to me.
And remember Chia seeds are super-food! Delicious and great addition to desserts. Some more information about them check out Cooking Detective’s – 17 Benefits of Chia seeds.
Have a delicious Friday and weekend, guys!
