CHOCOLATE OVERNIGHT OATS w/ SPICY ORANGE RAISINS

CHOCOLATE OVERNIGHT OATS w/ SPICY ORANGE RAISINS

Considering I present myself as completely mad about food I’m pretty low maintenance when it comes to what I put in my body on a daily basis. I prefer something rather healthy that keep my blood sugar levels under control and it’s nice if it tastes good but that’s pretty much it. Today I’ve managed to squeeze in two portions of oats. This morning I had regular oats with a diced Swedish apple, almond butter and half a pack of cinnamon and for lunch I had this; chocolate overnight oats accompanied with spicy oranges and raisins. To be honest, I really love my oats and I could probably have another portion for dinner but maybe I need to squeeze in something more dense in nutrients tonight.

Seriously guys, this was amazing. Creamy and chocolaty oats, spicy and sweet oranges and plump, orange-filled sultanas. Yikes! Since the oats are unsweetened and slightly chocolatey-bitter they work so nicely with the sweet raisins and the spicy oranges. The chili in there won’t kill anyone but just gives that little heat in the back of your throat, perfect to fight the autumnal cold! Also, its super convenient since everything is made the night before and is ready to grab when you are halfway out of the door. Deliciously lazy!

CHOCOLATE OVERNIGHT OATS w/ SPICY ORANGE RAISINS

Chocolate overnight oats
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup milk of choice
1 tbs chia seeds
1 tbs cacao
Cacao-nibs (optional)
Pomegranate seeds (optional)

Spicy orange raisins
1 orange
1 pinch of chili-flakes
2 tbs sultana raisins
1 tsp honey

Mix the oats, milk, chia seeds and cacao in a tupperware container, leave in the fridge overnight. In another container – add orange segments cut in half, raisins, chili flakes and honey and allow to soak overnight in the fridge.

In the morning transfer the overnight oats into a bowl, top with the spicy orange raisins and other toppings of choice. I added cacao nibs and pomegranate seeds to mine but anything will work.
