Alright! Here is a recipe that will add some variety to your week. If you’re a fan of overnight oats, give this overnight quinoa a try!
Nutritionally, quinoa has a more protein and magnesium, so if you’re looking for that, this may be a good sub for your oats! Both overnight oats and quinoa have carbs, so think of it as fuel. How are you going to use these carbs? Go for a walk, get in a workout, clean the house, play outside, whatever it is, let this fuel your morning.
Note: Quinoa has a totally different texture than oats. So it may taste like overnight oats, but it’s more of a grainy texture. It’s different.
- 1/2 cup quinoa, cooked
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp hemp hearts
- Dash of vanilla extract
- 1 tsp maple syrup (or more or less depending on how sweet you like it)
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- 1/4 cup almond milk (***note I amended the amount here to a little less, as the second attempt turned out a bit too runny in my books. Go with 1/4 cup instead of 3/4 cup)
- Dash of cinnamon
How to: Put all ingredients in a bowl. Place in fridge overnight. Top with berries, seeds, nuts, fruits, whatever you have!
