Overnight oats are what the moniker implies - oats soaked in a liquid of choice overnight until they are softened into a pudding-like consistency, presenting themselves as the perfect canvas for additions and toppings like fruits, nuts, sweeteners and spices! The most fun aspect of this dish is getting your kid to make breakfast with you the night before. Talk about serious skin in the game.

  • Yields: 2 adult and 1 toddler serving

Ingredients

3/4 cup rolled oats (not steel cut or instant oats)

1 1/2 cups plain milk (or almond, soy or other milk of choice)

1 tablespoon maple syrup

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon preferably Ceylon

1 tablespoon raisins

Pinch vanilla powder

1/4 cup fresh raspberries

Few slivered almonds or walnuts (optional)

Directions

Mix all the ingredients except the raspberries together and partition into 3 glass jars. Cover and store overnight in the fridge. Top with fresh raspberries or any fruit of choice and slivered nuts right before eating for a delicious, nutritious yet speedy breakfast.

Science Corner
Oats contain a special kind of fibre called beta-glucan which has been shown to lower cholesterol, prevent heart disease, boost immune function, stabilise blood sugar and even prevent breast cancer. Cinnamon has myriad health benefits including anti-diabetes, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, cardio-protective, cognition-boosting, cancer-prevention and female hormone-balancing effects. Raisins are every kid's favourite and chockfull of fibre, potassium, iron, B vitamins and anti-oxidants. With calcium, vitamin D and magnesium from milk, this breakfast is a yummy nutrient powerhouse your kids and you can enjoy for an energetic and delicious start to your day.
