These Matcha Overnight Oats make such a great easy, healthy and filling breakfast!
I absolutely love having overnight oats for breakfast as I'm very lazy in the morning and full of energy in the evenings, so it's perfect for me to be able to prepare my breakfast the night before!
But being faced with a beige bowl of beige oats in the morning can be pretty underwhelming, and well, beige. So, I decided to add some matcha powder to make things more exciting, both in terms of aesthetics and flavour.
Not only does the matcha add a delicious flavour and wonderful green hue, but it’s also packed full of antioxidants and full of health benefits.
You'll also get a nice caffeine kick from the green tea, which is especially handy if you can't be bothered to make yourself a cup of coffee in the mornings either.
You can buy matcha powder from local health stores or Asian supermarkets.
These Matcha Overnight Oats are highly customisable and you can top them with whatever you fancy. Good toppings include:
- coconut yogurt
- coconut flakes
- desiccated coconut (in case you can't already tell, I really love coconut!)
- fresh fruit (berries such as strawberries, raspberries, blueberries work well, as do stone fruits such as cherries or nectarines)
- dried fruit (I love dried mango! Goji berries would also be nice)
- chopped nuts (pistachios, brazil nuts, macadamia nuts, whatever else)
- seeds (sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds)
