Almost every weeknight for the past couple of years I've made this overnight oat recipe for my hubby in the evenings so he can grab it and go in the morning, or if he doesn't start super early he heats it on the stove to make a warm porridge. Every now and then I make it for myself as well. It's a staple recipe we've both loved for years. This recipe is loaded with healthy fats, protein and complex carbs making it a nutrient rich breakfast which keeps both of us satisfied until lunch time. You can even make it in large batches ahead of time (for 4-5 days) and portion it out in the morning.

Ingredients:

His
 1 cup oats
 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
 1 tbsp flaxseeds or chia seeds
 1 tbsp cranberries (raisins or goji berries)
 2 brazil nuts
 2 tbsp chopped almonds or walnuts
 2 tbsp protein powder
 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
 1 cup water

Hers
 ½ cup oats
 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
 1 tbsp flaxseed or chia seeds
 1 tbsp cranberries (raisins or goji berries)
 2 brazil nuts
 1 tbsp protein powder (I like vanilla)
 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
 Topping options: choose from - 1 handful of berries/grated apple/sliced banana and 1 tbsp almond butter

Method:

1

Add all ingredients into a glass jar and stir together until combined.

2

Top with your favourite fruit (frozen berries work well), a nut butter (if you fancy) or two tbsp yoghurt and pop it into the fridge. In the morning grab this and enjoy it straight from the jar, in a bowl or heat it on the stove for a few minutes).

NOTE: if heating on the stove add yoghurt the following day.
