What is Overnight Oats?
It is an incredibly easy and tasty breakfast meal that is about adding ingredients of your choice to cooked oats, popping in the fridge and eating it the next morning. Yes, as simple as that!
Why is it SO AWESOME?
You can add various types of ingredients like fresh or dried fruits, yogurt, peanut butter, nuts, seeds and more!
These healthy ingredients are going to give you all the necessary minerals and vitamins to stay physically fit and lose weight. You want to look fabulous in your Baju Raya, don’t you? Hehehe! Moreover, it is good for the heart and low in cholesterol.
Most importantly, since it is Bulan Puasa, having oats for sahur will keep you full longer so you can stay energized throughout the day. You will be fueled with energy because oats are high in fibre and it takes longer to be digested in the body, making you less hungry. Seeeee, awesome right?!
And everyones’ favourite word – easy. Overnight Oats is so easy to make. There is no cooking or baking involved to prepare it in the morning, since you are just going to add all the ingredients in a jar the night before.
Why use Rolled Oats instead of normal oats?
This is because the texture of rolled oats are thicker and rougher compared to normal oats. So when it is soaked overnight, it will not be too soft and still give a wonderful texture.
So let’s check out some delicious Overnight Oats Recipes for Sahur!
1. Kurma Overnight Oats
Get 3 Kurma or dates then blend it with milk and chia seeds. Add it to the rolled oats and refrigerate it.
Kurma is famous during Raya. You can try the most popular brand that I’m sure you have heard on the radio countless times hahaha – Yusuf Taiyoob.
