As I mentioned many times before, breakfast shouldn’t take too long time to prepare. Standing in the kitchen early in the morning, making pancakes or some other breakfast dishes that takes too long is never happening in my kitchen. I like (LOOOVE!!) pancakes, but its not something I eat in the morning, ever.
A few weeks ago I took a personality test online, and what I found out was a bit scary. It´s like they know me. They know how I think, how I react in different situations etc. An interesting thing about the result is that it said I’m lazy but creative. And yes that is correct. That sounds like me.
So maybe your first thought is that being lazy is a bad thing but in my case, it’s not. It’s a good thing.
I’m always trying to skip unnecessary steps because of my laziness in creative ways that sometimes turn out great. And hey, why spend unnecessary time on something that’s not worth it? Like those yummy sounding pancakes, I talked about earlier. Why waste my precious morning on making breakfast, when I can, with just a little creativity, prepare everything the night ahead and have a delicious meal in the morning.
That’s where my friend overnight oats jumps in and saves my mornings. Big plus, overnight oats is as versatile as smoothies, as healthy, or at least I think they are. Again I’m not a nutritionist just very interested in nutrition and healthy food. And they are easily assembled in the evening, which means delicious breakfast just waiting for me in the early morning when I want nothing rather than going straight to bed again or a gallon of coffee to wake me up from the dead.
So now that you know that I’m not a-pancake-making-in-the-morning-person and after all my talking about those damn pancakes, you start to crave them, you maybe would like to try my savory pancake (crepes) recipe with mushrooms and cashew cream or sweet crepes with raspberry chia jam.
- ½ cup (1,2 dl) rolled oats
- ½ cup (1,2 dl) soy yogurt
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp agave syrup
- ½ cup (1,2 dl) oat milk or other plant-based milk
- ½ lb (250 g) fresh strawberries
- The night before, add all ingredients except fresh strawberries to a bowl and stir until well combined.
- In a separate bowl, add fresh strawberries and use a fork to mash them up to your desired consistency.
- Take two jars and spoon ¼ of the oat mixture into each one. Spoon ¼ of the mashed strawberries into each jar. Repeat the process with oat mixture and top with remaining mashed strawberries.
- Cover the jars and place in the fridge overnight.
