There's nothing better than waking up and knowing that breakfast is already made. I am always (literally always) late, so making a delicious and healthy breakfast is not something I often get to do. So Maple & Walnut Overnight Oats are totally my new morning obsession. You simply pop all the ingredients into a jar the night before, and when you wake up your gloriously delicious breakfast is there waiting for you.
The thing I love the most about overnight oats, is that it makes it so much easier to make healthy choices. When we are in a hurry and have lots of things to do it is very difficult to eat healthily. I am extremely horrible at sticking to any kind of healthy eating plan, and when I am busy and stressed I am EVEN worse and I end up eating quick on the go breakfasts that are often packed with sugar and preservatives. So overnight oats has really saved breakfast for me... especially since breakfast is my favourite meal of the day (except for dessert of course).
The Maple & Walnut Overnight Oats are the bomb! They are packed with protein, thanks to the nuts and the chia seeds and they will keep you fuelled for any hectic day you have ahead of you. I love the mixture of the maple and the walnut flavours, they seem to go so well together, plus they kind of make your breakfast taste a bit like dessert...which is never a bad thing!
To make this fantastic Maple & Walnut Overnight Oats, all you have to do is simply pour the oats, chia seeds, walnuts,maple syrup and milk into a jar. Give it a quick stir and place it in the fridge. The next morning, the oats will be all deliciously swelled out and your breakfast will be ready. You can top it up with a few more nuts and a tiny bit more maple syrup. This breakfast is also perfect for vegans as it is packed with protein and all you have to do to transform it into a delicious vegan breakfast is swop out the milk for almond milk or any other diary free milk alternative.
