The Update on Oats
The recipe of the overnight oats in one of the posts last week had to be tested and reviewed, so last night I put about 40 grams of oatmeal into a jar and filled it up halfway with coconut milk. This is not the heavy coconut cream that comes in little packages and is often used in Thai/Asian sauces, but the light coconut milk in the 1 litre package (usually around 20 kcal/100 ml). Stirred it and then just set it away in the refrigerator overnight.
This morning I added some frozen raspberries, and about 150 grams of mild fat free kwark (instead of Greek yogurt). My topping: a couple of walnuts (instead of pecan nuts) and some 0 % of Walden Farms walnut maple syrup (instead of regular maple or agave syrup).
Oatmeal is nutrient-rich food, containing lots of vitamins, minerals and fibres and it’s low in kcal. A package of oatmeal costs about € 0,50.
This makes oatmeal a great option to incorporate into your diet.
Try the recipe of overnight oats and make your own variety by exchanging the fruits and nuts to your taste.
Overnight oats is a very easy to make breakfast, and it’s delicious!
