Back to School Overnight Oats
These overnight oats are quick and easy to make the night before school together.
In a short glass place a teaspoon of vanilla paste, a large handful of organic oats, cover with hemp milk and stir. Next add a layer of fresh blueberries, follow with a dollop of peanut butter, a sprinkle of granola (many recipes on this blog!) and top with smashed up strawberries with chia seeds. This raw chia jam can be made ahead or at the same time by one of the family, mashing strawberries with the chia seeds until they form a thick lumpy puree consistency - you don’t want it perfect!
These overnight oats give the whole family a delicious nutrient dense breakfast that is sugar free, gluten free, dairy free and suitable for vegans. You have the all important mix of polysaccharies (carbs from oats), calcium rich hemp milk, protein packed chia seeds and essential fatty acids (nut butter). This combination releases sugar steadily into the bloodstream and gives a sustained flow of energy to cells.
We hope you have fun making this muesli and love it as much as we do.
