I could never find words to describe my love for breakfast. There’s just something about starting each day with a delicious, creative, special and nutritious meal. My little sister is also a big breakfast person and she happens to be spending a few weeks in Salzburg now as well. On the last couple mornings we have prepared smoothies, overnight oats and matcha pancakes.
Overnight oats are a very easy, quick and healthy breakfast choice. Preparing them on the previous night gives you an opportunity to have a little bit slower morning yet still eat a nutritious breakfast. My favorite part about these is that they can be varied in so many different ways.
This time our overnight oats turned out to be a bit sweet and spicy with cinnamon, vanilla and honey in them. I also love to add some chia seeds in the bowls since they create a nice texture and help you stay full longer. Here is a recipe that we used (makes one):
1 dl oats
1 tbs chia seeds
¾ mashed banana (you can make coins of the remaining part and add them on the top)
1 dl coconut milk drink
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp vanilla sugar or ¾ tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
First mash the banana and then mix all the ingredients together. I prefer preparing this into a sealable glass jar. Place in fridge for a couple hours or overnight, and enjoy!
