Overnight Oats with Raspberries
Overnight oats are a great morning time saver and always seem to be a hit with fussy children. By soaking the oats overnight you break down the phytic acid and make them much easier to digest. Soaking also releases the natural sugars which makes this recipe taste lovely and sweet without the need for a sweetener. The raspberries add antioxidants, vitamin C and manganese.
If you enjoy the ease and taste of these overnight oats there are endless possibilities. Try mixing it up with different fruits or why not add some chia seeds for an added omega 3 boost. This bircher muesli recipe is essentially overnight oats with some added extras. Or you can even try layering in nut butters or adding coco powder.
