Christmas is one of the busiest times of the year for most people. There is the wrapping of presents, festive cooking and endless trips to the shops and eating healthily is likely to be the least of our worries. Who has time to think about having a nutritious breakfast? This Easy Overnight Oats with Raisins and Poppy Seeds recipe shows that nutritious breakfast can be absolutely fuss free.
Easy overnight oats
Overnight oats take about 2 minutes to put together, which is not much longer than it takes to prepare a bowl of cereal in the morning. The difference is that a bowl of cereal is likely to contain more sugar and doesn’t really leave much room for creativity the way that overnight oats do. They can be enjoyed with as little or as much sugar as you like and the flavour combinations are practically endless. This is my first overnight oats recipe on the blog and since Christmas is only a few days away I thought I’d give these oats a festive twist.
Poppy seeds are a very popular ingredient used around Christmas time in Poland (mainly in baking). I adore poppy seed cakes of all types! Poppy seeds pair well with nuts, raisins, honey and typical Christmas spices such as cinnamon and cloves – which is essentially what goes into this recipe.
I also did a little digging and found out that poppy seeds are very nutritious! They contain calcium, phosphorus, iron and zinc so it makes sense to sprinkle them on cereal or salad. And it certainly makes sense to use them in a healthy overnight oats recipe!
