Overnight Chai Steel Cut Oats
I found this recipe on Pinterest the other day and was super excited to try it out. Coincidentally, I had just bought a package of steel cut oats on Saturday from Superstore. it was super cheap.. $3.79 maybe?
there is no cooking involved with this recipe! my FAVOURITE kind of cooking!
i didn't have any ground flax available but i don't think that's a big deal. also used Agave instead of maple syrup which tasted good, but i think i might go a touch lighter on the cardamon next time.
mix mix mix
a little nervous that there was a lot of milk but figured it would get absorbed overnight
these had about 9-10 hours of soaking in the fridge
tick tick tick tick DONE!
milk is gone!

i think they liked it!
it is quite filling. i made a serving and a half and i couldn't finish mine and they didn't finish theirs either. i ended up adding banana to it later in the afternoon which made a huge difference! i don't know if it's the brand of oats or if they are supposed to be kind of squishy but the banana flavour complemented it so well and added a softer texture to it. excited to try different variations!
so simple and it means breakfast is waiting for you!
