This makes one big serve. Great way to start the day with some healthy, low GI carbs and protein. There are SO many flavor options with these but I am just going to start with this, don’t worry, there will be more…. They were too delicious to stop here. I made mine in a jar because it looks pretty but a plastic container or covered bowl will work just fine.
Oats are very low in fat & high in a fibre called beta glucans that can help lower cholesterol, we’ve all seen the ad’s, you know why you should eat them. They are not completely gluten free but are VERY low in gluten and are a great source of energy.
1 cup wholegrain oats
2 cups milk of your choice (almond, oat, dairy, coconut)
2 tbs shredded coconut
1 tbs flaxseeds or ground flax (optional)
1 tbs chia seeds (optional)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 heaped tbs of protein powder (optional)
Raspberries – as many as you like
Add all your dry ingredients to the container you are going to use. Pop the lid on & shake it to mixture it all up. Pour over your milk until it just starts to pool on top. Add more/less if you need to. It will get absorbed. Sprinkle top with raspberries, cover with lid and pop it in the fridge for a few hours at least, overnight is best. Now you can eat. Enjoy.
