Overnight almond coconut porridge

    8 hours 10 min

    Leaving the oats to soak overnight makes this an easy breakfast option. Add sliced almonds and fruit just before serving. You could use unsweetened almond milk and add a drizzle of honey if you prefer to eat only natural sugars. Oats and chia seeds are packed with nutrients and will keep you full til lunch!

    I didn't have any cardamam but used everything else in the recipe. Added blueberries for one morning and raspberries the next YUM!  -  21 May 2016


    The flavor is dead-on chai and smells delicious! I had to add a bit of sweetener right before eating bc I used unsweetened almond-coconut milk. This definitely requires way more liquid though. I made it exactly as written and ended up having to add another 3/4 cup of milk. I made it the night before around 11pm and when I went to eat it in the morning around 7am, it was one big solid mass that could barely be stirred. With the additional milk though, it was still thick, but a very good consistency. Normally for overnight oats, the standard guideline is a 2:1 ratio of liquid/yogurt to oats, so this recipe would work best with 2 cups of milk. Cardamom is quite pricey, but it definitely makes this recipe so don't leave it out!  -  21 Apr 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Easy to make. I don't recommend steel cut oats.  -  10 Oct 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
