If you are anything like me, then your mornings will always be rushed and hectic. Making a healthy breakfast is probably the last thing that you want to do, when you only have 10 minutes to shower, get dressed and organised yourself for the day ahead. But, now you can have your cake and eat it! These super healthy overnight oatcakes are a breakfast game changer. Read on to find out how easy they are to make!
To make your own overnight oatcake:
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 cup milk (I use cashew nut milk, but any will do)
- Flavoring of your choice (vanillia extract, cocoa powder, protein powder – the options are endless)
- A mold to set your oatcake in over night (I like to use a mini silicon cake tin, but you could use a bowl- or anything that you have at home)
The night before you want to have your oatcake:
- Combine your ingredients well
- Place in your mold
- Place your mold in the fridge and leave overnight (or at least for an hour)
In the morning:
Get your oatcake out of the fridge, and if you have time you can create a master piece with all your toppings! If you have to rush out, then you can just put your oatcake in some tin foil, or in a tupperware with your toppings and enjoy it when you get to work or school!
You can top your oatcakes with anything you like! I have tried all sorts.
I think this is the prettiest oatcake I have made. It is a layered oatcake that I made with Philosophie Berry Bliss and Healthy body matcha. I topped this oatcake with a coconut- tahini drizzle, banana coins, cubes of one of my Good Green’s bars and a final sprinkling of Matcha Raw. Can we just take a moment to appreciate the colors of this?! I mean look how green that top layer is!

To give you a bit more inspiration for your oatcakes, here is another of my creations. This is one of my Philosophie Cacao Magic oatcakes topped with an Emmy’s Vanilla Coconut macaroon, banana coins and some frozen blueberries.

Another awesome way that I have enjoyed my chocolate oatcake was by topping it with one of my valentines Epic Chocolate Sprout Living black bean brownies- the recipe for the brownies is on the blog! You could also top your oatcake with one of my choc chip pumpkin protein cookies- click here for the recipe!
But, get creative with your overnight oatcakes. You could make any flavor oats you like, and top them with anything you fancy. I have been experimenting with healthy and delicious frosting’s like PB and Jelly and Vanilla creme- so watch this space!
