Overnight Oats: The Creamy Canvas for a Dreamy Breakfast (with a Touch of Almond Butter Magic)

Posted by Nick Sheridan on

Overnight oats – the breakfast champion beloved for its convenience and deliciousness. But let's be honest, sometimes a bowl of plain oats can feel a little, well, plain. While oats are a fantastic source of complex carbohydrates, providing sustained energy throughout the morning, they lack essential nutrients like protein and healthy fats. This is where the magic of toppings comes in, and at 99th Monkey, we believe the perfect topping for your overnight oats is none other than our very own Natural Almond Butter.

Beyond the Basics:

Don't get us wrong, a simple bowl of oats with a drizzle of milk can be a delightful breakfast. But to truly elevate your oat game and turn it into a powerhouse breakfast, you need to add some key ingredients. Here's where Natural Almond Butter swoops in to save the day.

The Protein and Healthy Fat Powerhouse:

Packed with protein and healthy fats, Natural Almond Butter adds a crucial element to your overnight oats. Protein helps slow down the digestion of carbohydrates in the oats, preventing blood sugar spikes and crashes that leave you feeling hungry soon after. Healthy fats contribute to satiety, sending signals to your body that it's satisfied and doesn't need to reach for more calories. This means you'll feel fuller for longer, keeping you energised all morning long.

A Symphony of Flavours and Textures:

But the benefits of Natural Almond Butter extend far beyond just keeping you full. Its rich, nutty flavour creates a delightful counterpoint to the creamy texture of the oats. Imagine creamy Almond Butter drizzled over your overnight oats, adding a layer of complexity that elevates the flavour profile.

The Dreamy Trio:

Now, let's add another element to this breakfast masterpiece: sliced banana. The sweetness and creaminess of the banana perfectly complement the richness of the Almond Butter and the smooth texture of the oats. It's a flavour and texture combination that's simply dreamy.

Overnight Oats Made Easy:

Here's a simple overnight oat recipe to get you started:

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup almond milk (or your preferred milk)

Combine these two ingredients in a jar or container, stir well, and place them in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, you'll have a delicious and healthy base ready for your toppings.

The Final Touch:

Now comes the fun part – the toppings! Here's where your creativity can run wild.

  • Nutty Delight: Add a generous dollop of 99th Monkey Natural Almond Butter for a protein and healthy fat boost.
  • Fruity Fun: Top your oats with sliced banana like we mentioned, or explore other fruits like berries, kiwi fruit, or apples.
  • Seed Sensations: Sprinkle some chia seeds or hemp seeds for an extra dose of nutrients and a delightful crunch.
  • Creamy Dream: Add a dollop of yoghurt for an extra creamy texture.
  • Spice It Up: Sprinkle some cinnamon or nutmeg for a warm and inviting flavour.

Warm or Cold, You Decide:

The beauty of this recipe lies in its versatility. If you prefer warm oats, simply heat your overnight oats mixture in the microwave for a minute or two (depending on your preference) before adding your toppings.

The Overnight Oats Revolution:

So, next time you're looking for a quick and convenient breakfast, ditch the boring and embrace the world of overnight oats. Top them with a generous amount of 99th Monkey Natural Almond Butter for a symphony of flavours and textures, along with a much-needed protein and healthy fat boost. Overnight oats are the perfect way to start your day feeling full, energised, and ready to conquer anything!
