This is one of my favorite Breakfast Recipe, since takes only 5 minutes for the Prep. You can make it before night and pop it in fridge. Top it with some fresh fruits or nuts in the morning just before serving.
You can play around with the ingredients. There are lot of options you can choose from. You can even have fun with your kids while preparing.
Just ask them to through in their favorite ingredients in the jar and it will be very easy for us to serve their favorite breakfast.
Options you can go with:
Whole Oats are very nutritive that has Iron, Thiamine and Fiber. Its mostly used in Granola/Muesli, porridge and to extract oat milk. Here this is the main ingredient, it absorbs the liquid and softens overnight.
You can choose your favorite seeds – Chia Seed, Flax Seed, Pumpkin Seeds, Melon Seeds, sunflower seeds, etc.,
Using nuts gives a crunch to this soaked oats, add chopped nuts in the morning just before serving. Almonds, Cashew, Walnut, Pecans any other nuts can be used. You can also use roasted nuts for more flavor.
Chocolate Chips, Cocoa Powder, Matcha Powder, Peanut Butter, Nutella, Almond Butter or any other nut butter are some good flavors to go with. And you can also use any fruit compote to make it more flavorful. If its a go for your kid, then you can add it.
Honey, Maple Syrup, Brown Sugar are healthier choices.
For Soaking the Oats you can use either Dairy milk or non-dairy, its totally your choice. Try Almond or Coconut Milk for a rich flavor.
