Oatmeal has been a staple in my diet my entire life, yet it wasn’t until last week that I ventured into the world of “overnight oats.” I am aware that I am late to this fabulous trend, but I am here now and I’m also now on time for work because I’m not making oatmeal in the morning. I love meal prepping.
I also love bitter, dark chocolate and strawberries, which are the predominant flavors of this recipe that I’ve been making daily. It’s cheap and easy to make, delicious, and nutritious! Let’s get started.
Ingredients (serves 1):
- 1/2 cup of old fashioned oats
- 1 cup of water or nondairy milk
- Sea salt to taste
- Turmeric to taste
- Cinnamon to taste
- 1 tbs. cocoa powder
- 1 tbs. cocoa nibs
- 3 tbs. chia seeds
- 3-6 fresh strawberries, sliced
Combine all of the ingredients, except for the strawberries, into a bowl and stir. Refrigerate overnight. When you’re ready to eat, top it off with fresh strawberries and enjoy!
