So believe it or not, since my New Years Resolution to stay a bit healthy and lose the mass I put on over Christmas (too much food but too good to resist situ…) I have actually been healthier. I have been snacking less on absolute crap, and I have been careful what I eat. Don’t get me wrong I have a pizza or something full of calories like once a week maybe, but I have just been trying out new stuff.
One issue I have *FUSSY EATER ALERT* is that I don’t like anything. That might be a little exaggeration, but I am quite a fussy eater. Especially when it comes to brekkie because I don’t like cereal or milk or porridge or eggs etc… So I limit myself quite a bit. I KNOW ITS SO BAD, I am trying to teach myself to like more stuff.
I saw this recipe on good ol’ Pinterest, and I discovered that OVERNIGHT OATS are a thing and I was like ‘How have I never seen this before?’. I had a scroll and there was all sorts of flavors to try like strawberry cheesecake, peanut butter and banana, and the one I L-O-V-E-D the sound of was dark chocolate and orange. Also did I forget to mention it is high in fiber *TICK*, 300 calories *TICK*, and fully of energy to last the day *TICK TICK TICK*. I had to try this out!
The photos on Pinterest showed it in a cute little preserving jar, but because it was a Sunday night and nowhere would have been open that sold them so I went for my mason jar. This is really quick to make, about 5 mins, and then you can take it as an on the go snack too!
Makes: 1 | Prep Time: 5 mins | Difficulty: There’s no way to mess it up
What you will need:
- Jar or glass to put it in
- 60g of oats
- 70ml of milk
- 3 tablespoons of greek yogurt
- 1½ tablespoons of cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon of golden syrup
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon of orange juice
- Dark chocolate
This is so so simple… honestly as I said above, there is no way you can go wrong with this recipe. All you have to do is weighout all the ingredients into a bowl, mix really really really well until everything is combined, put it into a jar or glass, and then leave in your fridge overnight! If you can’t wait that long then it would probably be best to leave it for a minimum of 3 hours. This allows to oats to expand giving it its texture. Talking about its texture it is very… different… but it is easy to get used too! If you like porridge then I highly recommend trying it. Think of chocolate orange, but a healthy alternative!!
