Food // My Favourite Overnight Oats/Bircher Recipe

January 14, 2020

A very quick post from me tonight as I want to document my favourite overnight oats/bircher recipe. I've been searching for the perfect breakfast combination for years and it was only after feeling inspired from subscribing to the Deliciously Ella app fairly recently that I mixed a few of her recipes together and rehashed them to make this. I always make a beeline for bircher muesli whenever we stay or go somewhere for breakfast but it's often REALLY sweet and made with apple juice. Don't get me wrong, I have the biggest sweet tooth, but if I start my day with something sugary then I've got no hope. Or often they're too yogurty which I don't always fancy. I'm not a full on vegan but we have been eating a lot more plant based meals of late. Anyway, this is just what I've been looking for, it takes just 5 minutes to throw together when the baby is in bed and then you have a healthy breakfast ready and waiting for you in the morning, if you scale it up then you're set for the week! Lots of you have requested the recipe too so I hope it's helpful.

Loosely inspired by Deliciously Ella, the plant based queen;

for 2 portions; 

120g Oats
375ml milk {I use almond}
2 grated apples {I use organic braeburn}
2 tablespoons chia seeds
Handful of raisins
Handful of pumpkin seeds

Makes 2 servings. Basically just mix all together and store in the fridge overnight. I find it best to make it in one big bowl and then spoon out portions as and when you need them, it seems to soak better when it's all one big portion to start with. I often scale this up to make 3 or even 4 breakfasts in a row. 

Great on it's own or even more delicious topped with a spoonful of almond butter and berries when you go to eat it. You could add honey/maple syrup but I don't feel it needs it. 

Keeps you full for hours and fulll of fibre and the good stuff.

  1. Have been making this all week and am a total addict! The one thing you must try adding is toasted (emphasis on the toasted) flaked almonds. Takes it to another level! X
