Good to know!

Up to 70 percent of an apple’s vitamins are found in the apple skin or directly underneath it. The skin is also rich in magnesium, iron, unsaturated fats and bioactive substances. So avoid peeling apples, otherwise you will also peel off all the vitamins.

Overnight Oats Characteristics:

  • Fuels your body with a lot of nutrients and vitamins
  • Contains many minerals and trace elements
  • Provides complex carbohydrates & high-quality protein
  • Regulates intestinal activity
  • Provides energy & satiates long
  • Natural sweet without added sugar
  • Quick breakfast for the go

Ingredients

Porridge Base:

50g (½ cup) rolled oats or quick oats (The porridge will be creamier with quick oats and will have more texture with rolled oats. But you can also mix them.) 

180ml (3/4 cup) unsweetened oat milk, milk of choice or water

120g (1 cup) apple pieces

½ banana

1 pinch salt

½ tbs vanilla extract

1 tsp rice syrup or maple syrup (optional, but not necessary)

Toppings:

Apple in pieces or slices 

Banana in pieces or slices

40g (1/3 cup) pomegranate seeds

½ tsp grated coconut

 

Instructions

1

Cut the apple and banana in pieces and set them aside. Take a small part of it and put it in the fridge. You can use it the next morning to decorate your overnight oats. 

Remove the pomegranate seeds from the peel. This works best in a bowl of water, removing the pomegranate seeds under water. This prevents the seeds from splashing, and the peel remains floating on the surface of the water so that they can be easily removed.

Now you have two options:

1. Precook the overnigt oats:
Give the oats, the salt and the oat milk in a pot and let it simmer at medium heat until the consistency is thick. Add some liquid if it gets too thick and constantly stirs so that the oatmeal doesn´t burn. 

2. Soak overnight:
Give the oats, the salt and the oat milk in a bowl and mix all ingredients.

Note: If you precook the oatmeal, your overnight oats will have a creamier consistency. If you let them soak overnight, your oats will have a coarser texture. But both taste great! The salt gives your oat flakes a more intense flavour. So don´t leave it out. 🙂

3

Take a second pot and put the apple pieces and the banana into it. Add about 30 ml of water and the vanilla extract and let the mixture simmer at medium heat until it becomes a puree’s consistency. Also here, stir constantly so that the puree doesn´t burn. 

Note: If you add some rice syrup or maple syrup your apple banana puree will get a caramel taste. You can also use honey if you have nothing else at home. However, please note that honey loses quality when heated over 40 degrees as it is susceptible to heat. When heated, some ingredients, such as some enzymes, get lost. So add the honey only after heating.

4

Then add the apple banana puree to your cooked or mixed oatmeal and stir everything until everything is evenly mixed. Add a little bit of water or milk if the consistency is already too thick.

5

Put everything in a glass jar or bowl and put it in the fridge overnight – also the pomegranate seeds.

6

In the morning:

Decorate your overnight oats with the apple pieces, banana slices and pomegranate seeds. Add the grated coconut, and you are ready for the day!

Enjoy your Apple Pomegranate Overnight Oats!
