Breakfast Oats with Blueberries


I stumbled upon another obsession with food, first it was avocados and now it's soaked oats (breakfast will never be the same).  I'm probably one of the few people that like cold breakfasts, so when I came across "soaked overnight oats",  I read "I don't have to cook at the crack of dawn" oats.  To make this delicious dish I measure out 1/2 cup of rolled oats (I use gluten free ones) and 1/2 cup of "milk".  I am currently using light soy milk.  Mix it together, cover it up overnight.  In the morning it looks like the above photo.


 The hardest part of this recipe is remembering to mix it the night before.  I am in love with this breakfast so much that I have been diligent in creating my breakfast before bed.  Anyways, in the morning, splash some more milk of choice, add a handful of blueberries and for the sweet tooth some sugar.


cold soaked oats with blueberries-check.  juice in my pooh bear glass-check.  morning poetry-check. What a delicious way to start the day!

I'm sure you can imagine the possibilities-brown sugar, maple syrup, walnuts, almonds, cinnamon, bananas, cherries, raisins-and for those of you that enjoy a hot breakfast you can warm it up.





I continue to listen to various podcasts, the knitting and the literary kind.  The birds are sleeping in these mornings and dare I say that it is a little later when the sun rises (this is probably wishful thinking on my part). My second hand listening has been the Steely Dan channel on pandora, my husband has had that on every single time we've been in the car.

  9. This might be what they serve in parts of Europe as Muesli? It's yummy!

  10. Hey, we are eating almost the exact same thing for breakfast, except I add honey and yogurt along with my blueberries. Makes getting up so early well worth it!

  13. This looks so beautiful! I have heard that soaking nuts and grains does wonders for them--I will have to try it! In the meantime, would you mind sharing your favorite knitting and literary podcasts sometime? I am woefully late to that game and would love some recommendations!

  15. Yes! Overnight oats! So good - but I agree with you that the hardest part is remembering to make them before bed. :) Chia seeds are amazing in there too - so good for you and they add a fun texture! Love your Pooh glass too - super sweet!

  16. we soak our steel cut oats in water with some sea salt + a healthy glug of kefir. but in the morning we cook them. the leftovers get stored in the fridge + heated up in the morning.

    hello, pooh!
