Chef Hat Icon Chef tips + Ingredient Swaps + Ideas

SAVVY with Berries ~ using frozen berries are more budget-conscious + eco-conscious when it comes to those small plastic berry packets. Frozen berries are often better quality as they are immediately frozen when picked. In your overnight oats jars, as the berries melt, they create a gorgeous berry juice that mixes beautifully with the oats – so you don’t need to add milk or yoghurt unless you want to! Topping your oats with frozen berries as you walk out the door helps keep your oats cold without carrying a cooler.

 

CONSISTENCY – if your overnights oat mixture is too thick for your liking, add 2 tbsp of water or milk – stir well. Repeat until you get the consistency that you like.

 

*COCONUT – use shredded or desiccated unsweetened coconut OR crushed coconut flakes

 

MAKE IT HOT – you can add hot water or milk if you want a warming, nourishing oat mix meal. REST for 5mins and stir well before eating. TOP with any flavors you like.

 

SWAP Peanut Butter – use any nut or seed butter you like, e.g. almond butter | sunflower seed butter | cashew butter.

 

SWAP RAISINS for currants, sultanas, cranberries, golden berries, blueberries, apricots, dates or any other dried fruit you like!

 

GLUTEN-FREE ~ oats are naturally gluten-free but often processed in the same facility as wheat, rye and barley. BUY certified gluten-free oats if you have a gluten allergy or sensitivity.

 

OUTDOOR ADVENTURES + TRAVEL – this mix travels well! Either take it dry on your adventures, add liquid when you need some nourishment, or mix it up with water + frozen berries to carry in your backpack for a healthy on the trail meal. Pack a spoon for the road!
