Breakfast Idea Overnight Oats
Overnight Oats saves time in the morning, and is a very nutritious and healthy breakfast.
But why should you soak oatmeal for such a long time? Oatmeal contains phytic acid and this disappears when the oatmeal is allowed to swell. Phytic acid binds important minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium and zinc. These minerals can not be absorbed in the body if the oatmeal has not been soaked.
If you want to save extra time, you can also mix twice the amount of the mixture for 2 days. Also, if you prepare this breakfast in a locked container you can eat it on the way.
- Oatmeal or spelt flakes
- soy milk or other herbal drink (almond drink, coconut drink, oat drink …)
- cinnamon, vanilla
- chopped cashew or hazelnuts
- 1 banana
- honey, maple syrup
- (see further topping ideas at preparation)
In the evening, prepare the oats or spelt with the Salzburg flake master to make fresh flakes. Then add the cinnamon or vanilla and nuts to a glass or bowl and let it swell overnight with the soy drink. Follow the rule: about 1 part of flakes and 3 parts of liquid (1: 3). After that you should put the breakfast in the fridge so that the oatmeal can absorb the liquid well over night.
On the next morning, the oatmeal is perfectly soaked and you can refine it with a variety of toppings. There are really no limits to your desire and creativity. The banana can be mashed and that mixed into the mash. That gives natural sweetness. If it is not sweet enough yet, refine your breakfast with some honey or maple syrup.
Nuts, chia seeds, raisins, coconut flakes, peanut butter or dried fruits taste delicious. Fresh fruits like berries, apples or mango are healthy and tasty with the oast. To create a chocolaty touch, you can also add some cocoa powder.
As you can see, there are so many possibly variations, your breakfast will not be boring any more.
We wish you a good start for the day!
