The weather has been a lot cooler this last week and we have been cooking up a variety of warming recipes. This carrot cake loaf is packed with all the flavours of the season ahead. Freshly grated carrots, moist sponge but not too oily and a good dose of cinnamon and mixed spice. The kitchen cooking smells were amazing and it counts as one of your five a day right?Read More
Carrot Cake Overnight Oats
My kids absolutely love a warm breakfast when the weather is getting colder and it doesn’t really take that much longer to prepare, especially if you soak and prepare all the ingredients overnight! I love to serve mine with a nutritious super-foods smoothie packed with greens or berries! 😉
We’ve been lucky to have a sunny spell the last few days but its been a bit cold and wet the last few weeks and its definitely felt like Autumn was well on her way! I welcome with open arms of course because I absolutely love Autumn and everything that comes along with this beautiful season! 🙂
Try this recipe and variations for a warming breakfast that will fill you right up until lunchtime.
1 cup of Porridge Oats
1 Cup of Quinoa Flakes
1 tbsp of Cinnamon (or quantity to taste)
1 Tbsp of Mixed Seeds
1 Finely Grated Carrot
Handful of Raisins (optional)
Chopped Walnuts (optional)
Almond Milk to cover and more to cook
I added all of the ingredients to a large bowl or other container, pour in enough milk to cover the mixture and stir.
Leave the mixture in a bowl in the fridge overnight and pop in a pan in the morning, add in some further milk or water to cook through and serve with maple syrup or honey and some additional chopped fruit if you desire.
I’ve added in a link to some quinoa flakes from Amazon if you can’t find them in your local shops. They can be tricky to find at times.
