Maca Overnight Oats with Almonds and Sesame Seeds

Maca Overnight Oats - Ingredients

Preparing your breakfast the night before surely does sound like a fantastic time-saver, especially if your recipe is a delicious combination of various different nutrients. Soaking rolled oats is a great way to soften these popular grains without cooking and soaking them overnight will give you a tender porridge within a couple of minutes.

For this particular recipe, I have decided to use minced almonds which can easily be combined with the remaining ingredients and are a fabulous source of protein, fiber, vitamin E, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. Adding just one tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder per serving will give you a rich chocolate flavor in the healthiest possible way, while the maple syrup will provide the right amount of sweetness you wish to taste. Top with some fresh strawberries (or any other fresh fruit you like) and have your breakfast served in no time at all. 

 Maca Overnight Oats - Mix

I like the nutty taste almonds add to different recipes. I always have a nice stash of minced almonds on hand – they are absolutely perfect for a different smoothie, porridge, or dessert recipes. Naturally, you can always add your favorite nuts like cashews, walnuts, or hazelnuts. However, adding a teaspoon of ground cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, or vanilla powder in a food processor with your nuts will give you an entirely new dimension of flavors you will definitely enjoy. Have fun!
