Overnight Oats with Roasted Plantains, Raw Honey and Cacao Nibs

4 Dec

I’m not a breakfast person. I’m never hungry when I wake up. But I have learned that if I don’t eat breakfast I will be much hungrier late in the night and my food choices will be poor.
My doctor always says “You have to have the breakfast of a king, the lunch of a wise man, and the dinner of a pauper.” And it makes sense, because if I choose healthy and nutrition choices for my breakfast I eat healthy throughout the day and not starving at night.
This is such a quick and fullfilling breakfast. You prepare it the night before and when you wake up is ready and waiting for you.
I prefer my foods warm, and according to Ayurvedic medicine, so does my my body type. So I quickly heat up my oats in a pan for 5 minutes. I don’t use the microwave because I believe it can reduce the nutrients in food.
These oats are very versatile and you can add different fruits, seeds, nuts, coconut flakes, goji berries… The possibilities are infinite.

Today, my oats had:

1 cup old fashioned oats
2 cups raw unpasteurized milk (you can substitute for any seed or nut milk you like, or water)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp maca powder
1 tsp carob
1 tsp açaí powder
1 tsp cacao nibs
1 plantain, roasted in its peel in the oven at 350 for 35 minutes
Raw Honey to taste

Method
1. In a bowl or mason jar, mix all ingredients and stir except for the honey, cacao nibs and plantain.
2. Wrap it in film or place a lid and leave it overnight in the refrigerator
3. When you wake up its ready to eat. Stir, add the plantain, honey and cacao nibs and enjoy.
4. I place the ingredients in a small sauce in medium heat for 5 minutes to warm it up. The plantain I roasted the night before I place on my toaster oven for 2 minutes, mash it and place it on top of the oats when ready.

It tastes like a decadent dessert, you will forget you are having a healthy breakfast!
