It’s winter, and that means oats. Comforting, delicious, and oh-so-good-for-you, overnight oats are the best kind because with very little work from you, they just get better and better. They’re a palette pleaser, but they’re also great for the gut. Check out this recipe from wellness vaca specialist—see Escape to Shape—and CB contributor Erica Gragg: this overnight oat recipe is rich in probiotics, and you should think of it as a gentle exfoliant for your intestines. If that’s TMI, forgive us. We’re just very, very excited about this recipe.
1/4 cup steel-cut oats (gluten free optional, depending upon your specific dietary needs)
1/2 – 3/4 cup of coconut milk or almond milk (no dairy)
1 tsp of Manuka honey (you can also use agave or honey, but this is a miracle worker: jam-packed with vitamins, enzymes and antioxidants, and a little goes a long way)
12 almonds or 6 walnut halves, crushed
Lots of blueberries or any fresh berries
2 pinches of coarse sea salt
Simply stir it all together and refrigerate. Don’t replace the berries with bananas—they don’t work well overnight.
Go to sleep. Wake up. Mix up. Add a very generous sprinkling of ceylon cinnamon & enjoy! Could it get any easier?
