Overnight Oats with Almond Butter, Brown Rice Flakes, Cherries & Fig

Hey hey!

I have such a long day ahead of me today, guys but bloggers gonna blog 😛 Besides, my day has been made already at this AM by the breakfast recipe I’m about to share with you.

Just as I was watering my fig tree yesterday, I knew that one of the fruits on the tree would be ripe enough today. With only one fruit, I thought it’d be a good idea to make overnight oats and use the fig to top it. Along with some other toppings, of course, because I’m greedy!!

Last night I made the overnight oats base with some almond milk, chia and honey (love my fig and honey combo!) Then, this morning I just topped the creamy oats with my freshly-picked fig, some cherries, brown rice flakes and almond butter. It turned out as amazing as I expected.

And don’t get me started on that dollop of almond butter, please. PERFECTION is the only word that can describe this breakfast bowl. THIS, together with the fact that today is Thursday and that we’re getting a long weekend here in Thailand this week just sent me to heaven. If you have 5 minutes, you can try this super easy fig and honey overnight oats and send yourself to heaven, too.

    What a way to start the day… Got to love overnight oats, always ready to greet your half-asleep self and awaken your senses… Might have to wait a while for my fig tree to grow, but in the meantime I tried this yummy recipe replacing the fig by a persimmon that happened to be here and ripe, and it hit that sleepy spot just right! Thanks Nart. 🙂

    I love figs! They make everything so classy. How fortunate you are to have a fig tree in your yard. I can’t wait to try this recipe… I am always on the lookout for new healthy snacks.
