Overnight OatsDifficulty: Easy
Oats and flaxseeds are great sources of fiber, and fiber is crucial for the binding and elimination of toxins. This recipe is comforting and delicious, and you can easily serve it warm on colder mornings.
1/2 Cup of gluten free, steel cut oats*
1 Cup coconut milk (gum-free is preferable)
A few topping options:
Cocoa nibs: great source of fiber and a sugar free way to get your chocolate fix
Flaxseed:** grind in a blender or spice grinder before eating to ensure maximum absorption.
1/4 of a banana, sliced, or a handful of your favorite berries
Ground cinnamon: cinnamon is an antioxidant, improves metabolism and has anti-inflammatory properties among other health benefits
Raw, sliced almonds:** toast in a dry pan over medium heat to release natural oils
- Combine coconut milk and oats in a porcelain or glass bowl. Cover, and place in the refrigerator for 10 to 72+ hours. Garnish with your favorite toppings.
- * Steel cut oats are minimally processed and supply more bioavailable nutrients, they also have a chewier texture and more nutty flavor.
** Store raw seeds and nuts in the freezer to keep them from rancidifying
