Overnight Oats / Bircher Muesli pt.2 – berries here I come

Hey there :)

I love overnight oats. They are so super versatile and satisfying. That’s why you get another Overnight Oats Recipe. And there will be more to come, I am sure ;) Basically because it is so easy and fast to out together and it doesn’t require any standing around in front of the oven. No one needs a lot of this at the moment, right? :)

And what’s more, with having all the berries in season, how can one not use them? Especially with them being so refreshing and full of all the good nutrition. And at the same time they are comparably low on the glycemic scale. Nice! :)

That’s why love putting some fresh and frozen berries in my muesli. Then have them on the balcony, with some sunshine on my back while it still is not too hot. And then crawl back to a coolish place.

Recipes

prep time: 5 minutes +++ yields: one serving

Strawberry-Blueberry-Muesli

Ingredients

  • ¼ Cup / 25g rolled Oats
  • 1-2 Tbsp. Chia Seeds
  • 1 Tbsp. ground Flax seeds
  • 1 Tbsp. ground Hempseeds (unshelled; if using shelled, don’t grind them)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla powder
  • about ½ Cup / 125ml Almond milk (or preferred milk)
  • 1 generous handful of blueberries
  • 5 big strawberries

Instructions

The night before mix oats, chia seeds, flax seeds, hempseeds, and vanilla powder in a small bowl. Stir in the almond milk. The ingredients should be at least completely covered, so you only see almond milk and no oats in the bowl. The seeds absorb a lot of liquid, so having everything completely soaked is totally fine. Cover the bowl and put in the fridge over night.

The next morning wash the berries. Slice or dice the strawberries. Take out the bowl. The chia and flax seeds should have absorbed a lot of the liquid so you will have quite a thick mass. If needed stir in some more almond milk. Mix in some of the berries and hen top with the rest blueberries and strawberries and enjoy.

Frozen Berry Muesli

Ingredients

  • ¼ Cup / 25g rolled Oats
  • 1-2 Tbsp. Chia Seeds
  • 1 Tbsp. ground Flax seeds
  • 1 Tbsp. ground Hempseeds (unshelled; if using shelled, don’t grind them)
  • 1 tsp. maca powder
  • about ½ Cup / 125ml coconut water (or preferred milk)
  • 5 big strawberries
  • 7-10 raspberries
  • a generous handful of mixed frozen berries

Instructions

The night before mix oats, chia seeds, flax seeds, hempseeds, and maca powder in a small bowl. Stir in the coconut water. The ingredients should be at least completely covered, a little more water doesn’t hurt. Cover the bowl and put in the fridge over night.

The next morning wash the berries. Slice or dice the strawberries. Take out the bowl. The chia and flax seeds should have absorbed a lot of the liquid so you will have quite a thick mass. If needed stir in some more coconut water. Then top with the raspberries and strawberries and sprinkle the frozen berries on top for some extra refreshing coolness ;) Enjoy.
