My Favourite Winter Overnight Oats


½ cup or 40g GF Oats
½ cup or water, milk or alternative liquid
pinch of salt

½ tspn of cinnamon
1 dspn of coconut oil
½ grated apple
1 tspn of slivered almonds
1 tblspn of maple syrup

In an air tight jar place your oats, liquid and pinch of salt.  You can also of course presoak them in the pot you are going to cook them in in the morning. 
Tip: I strongly advise to NOT use a microwave and destroy the nutrition in this bowl of goodness.  It cooks so fast anyway because it is presoaked.  I also use a jar with a line pre drawn on it so I can add ingredients each night without measuring.  Leave this to soak for approximately 4 hours or ideally overnight.

In the morning add to your pot the coconut oil, melt then tip in your oats.  If you have already soaked your oats in the pot then just wait until the oats have heated and then add the coconut oil.
Add in extra water if the mixture starts to dry out. Stir regularly, it really takes only 2-3 minutes to cook. 
To serve, pour the porridge into a bowl top with grated apple, nuts and cinnamon and drizzle with the maple syrup.  Add additional milk alternative if you wish.

Don’t eat too fast, this is delicious and nutritious.

You can really add any flavours you want, it’s endless and of course you can have it cold.  Here are a few of my favourite combinations.  There are more here at 19 Overnight Oats Recipe Ideas.
