Overnight oats with pomegranate and roasted almonds – the answer to all of your morning hassles and struggles.
Hi there! I’m so pleased to have you back for another exciting breakfast recipe. These overnight oats are not just any oats, they are oats with a serious kick! Try to imagine Mediterranean exotic fruit exploding to life in your mouth, accompanied by the nutty taste of freshly roasted almonds, finished off with the cool, creamy sensation of oats. It’s like one big dance party in your mouth, and you’re invited!
Sounds crazy, right? Who wants to a dance party happening first thing in the morning? Uh, me! I do. And you will too once you try this. Do you want to know something even crazier? It’s very quick and easy to make! You can get all of this in less time than it takes to get yourself out of bed. In fact, it’s ready before you even wake up. So let’s take a closer look.
To make this recipe, you will need 5 ingredients and 10 minutes. You will also need a bowl, a whisk, and a jar with a lid. For the best results, you should certainly make this the night before. It gives the oats and chia seeds an optimal amount of time to soak up all of the almond milk. It also means you can wash up everything that night, so in the morning you can grab your oats and go. Doesn’t get easier than that my friends!
To start this recipe off, we use almond milk, oats, and chia seeds. Combined, these ingredients give us a great source of essential vitamins and minerals, such as ‘healthy fat,’ vitamin E, protein, fibre, calcium, potassium, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin A.
But the real star of this dish is… drum roll please… pomegranate! Pomegranate is rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. In fact, they have 3 times as many antioxidants as green tea or wine. They are also a great source of vitamin C and folic acid, as well as many other vitamins and minerals.
Overnight oats with pomegranate and roasted almonds are the perfect breakfast because they are:
You will need to store your oats overnight for the best results. But in the event you need to store them for a bit longer, you can refrigerate your oats in your jar with the lid on for up to 48 hours. I would recommend eating it within 24 hours though.
And that’s about it my friends. What are you waiting for? Go and be proactive, get yourself sorted and have a breezy (and tasty) morning tomorrow!
