Breakfast is a big deal and I love waking up thinking it is time to feast on something delicious and nutritious. On a recent trip back to Ireland, I was lucky enough to sample “Nua Naturals Brown Rice Protein“, click to learn more about the Nua Naturals products. Also, when I am flying I like to bring snacks for the journey as I am not a “plane food”, kinda gal. So I made a ‘Overnight Protein Oat Soak’, to accompany me on my early morning travels. As a healthy foodie I save jars, lots of jars! They are handy to have in the press for carting snacks around, making nut butters, nut milks or any other food item that needs to be stored in the fridge/press. They come in handy when I am shooting and styling food too. For this recipe , you will need a jar. I used a meridian peanut butter jar and ingredients will be based on that particular jar size.
20 grams Oats
1/4 cup Chia Seeds
2 tbsp. Milled Flaxseed
200 ml Coconut Milk
1/2 Frozen Banana
1 tbsp. Nua Naturals Brown Rice Protein
2 sachets of Natvia or 1 tbsp. Honey
40-50 grams Frozen Blueberries
- Weigh out oats, chia seeds and flaxseed, pop in jar.
- In a blender coconut milk, frozen banana, brown rice protein, natvia or honey – blend until smooth. Pour into the jar and mix. Stir until combined. Store in the fridge overnight ( I made mine 8 hrs beforehand).
- In a bowl pop blueberries, add 3-4 tablespoons of water place under the grill and allow to defrost/melt. Once fully defrosted remove from the grill and mash with a fork. You can add honey if you like, however, I did not. Allow to cool. Do not add the blueberry mix until you are ready to munch it down. If you make it for travelling add the blueberry before you set off on your journey.
