Overnight Oats, Bananas and Figs. Oh My!



Okay, I admit it. I am late to the overnight oats party. So many food blogs have been raving about overnight oats and I didn’t get what all the hype was about until I tried it. One night I was rushing around prepping for the next work day and I decided that I didn’t want to miss my bed time due to cooking oatmeal for the next morning’s breakfast. I decided spur of the moment to try the overnight oats and see what all the buzz was about. Well let me just tell you that I am now on trend when it comes to prepping my oatmeal. Click here to see what I did with this overnight sensation.

1 cup of Steel cut oats oatmeal
1 banana (sliced)
6 fresh figs
2 teaspoons of sesame seeds
3 teaspoons of raw Turbinado sugar
½ cup of almond milk
½ teaspoon of cardamom
½ teaspoon of cloves
1 teaspoon of vanilla
Bring 4 cups of water to a boil.
Pour your cup of oats into a bowl or container of your choosing.
Cover your oats with the boiled water. You want to make sure that you cover it with enough water because the oats will expand as they cook.
Go to sleep.
In the morning reheat the oats to ensure that they are thoroughly cooked. Then add the almond milk, figs, banana, sugar, cardamom, cloves, and vanilla. Garnish with sesame seeds and enjoy!
