I have used roasted mixed seeds including sunflower, pumpkin, flax, watermelon, chia and gojiberries seeds. You can use chopped apple, strawberry, banana or any fruits of your choice but now mango season is about to end in India so I am using it in my overnight oats and other dishes.

Sending this post to A to Z challenge, a challenge initiated on Facebook Group, created by Jolly and Vidya. Wherein a group of bloggers come together and we choose key ingredients alphabetically to cook and post a dish every alternate month. This month’s Alphabet is letter O and my star ingredient is super food oats.

And today is Monday and this week’s 259 #Foodiemonday bloghop theme is Fruity Bites suggested by Archana who blog at Mad Scientist Kitchen. You can get variety of mouthwatering Goan recipes and many traditional, healthy and innovative recipes on her blog. I am planning to try her Japanese milk bread to try. Loved the pillow soft texture and different shapes. Looks really amazing. And also want to try Icecream loaf cake and many more. List is too long. Do visit her space for the recipes.

Now coming to this overnight oats recipe. I have used rolled oats and skimmed milk. You can use full fat milk. Or to make vegan use any plant based milk like almond milk, coconut milk, soy milk etc. Chai masala extract will give a lovely aroma but if you don’t have it then you can use vanilla essence, cinnamon powder, cardamom powder, chocolate or any flavour of your choice. You can also use any dry fruits, choco chips or anything according to your taste and availability. Instead of honey you can use maple syrup, stevia or any sweetener. Or skip any sweetener and add finely chopped dates. If you don’t have mango, use strawberry, banana, apple or any fruit of your choice. You can also use any roasted seeds, chia seeds etc. Use whatever you have or you like. Raisins and mango will give enough sweetness so you don’t need to add much sweetener in your overnight oats.

Recipe

Oats – 1/3 cup

Milk – 1/3 cup

Chai masala extract – 1 – 2 drop

Honey – 2 teaspoon or to taste

Mango – 1, peeled and chopped

Raisins – 3 teaspoon

Dry roasted mixed seeds – 1 tablespoon ( mixture of sunflower, pumpkin, flax, watermelon, chia and gojiberries seeds)

Pistachios to garnish, optional

Method

1. In a mason jar or bowl mix oats, honey, raisins, roasted mixed seeds and chai masala extract. First add 1 drop extract taste and add 1 drop more if require. I have used 2 drops.

2. You can also add chopped mango. I have added as topping in the morning. Keep the mixture in refrigerator for overnight or 3 – 4 hours. Best to soak overnight. See notes for more options.

3. Next day take out the soaked oats. Top with chopped mango, some roasted seeds, raisins and pistachios if using. Serve chilled.

4. Or take a jar or glass. Make layer of soaked oats, place some chopped mango over it. Pour remaining soaked oats and top with chopped mango, mixed seeds, raisins and pistachios. Serve delicious overnight oats parfait as a breakfast or dessert.

5. Enjoy your creamy, aromatic, healthy and delicious breakfast.

Notes

1. You can use vanilla, chocolate, cinnamon or any flavour of your choice instead of chai masala.

2. Strawberry banana, apple or any fruit can be used instead of mango.

3. Any dry fruits and chia seeds or any seeds can be used with raisins and mixed seeds.

4. You can also add 1-2 tablespoon chopped fresh coconut while soaking the oats.

4. You can also use almond milk, coconut milk or any plant based milk instead of dairy milk.

Helps in digestion

2. Boosts blood circulation

3. Helps in weight loss

4. Builds your immune system
