For the Overnight Oats: 1 large carrot See Note 1 1 cup (80 g) old fashioned rolled oats 1 ¼ cup (300 ml) milk - I use almond or oat See Note 2 ¼ cup (40 g) sultanas or raisins 1 tablespoon chia seeds See Note 3 1 tablespoon maple syrup See Note 3 ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon ½ teaspoon vanilla Toppings (optional): Greek yoghurt or coconut yoghurt walnuts - roughly chopped coconut flakes or shredded coconut
In a medium-size bowl, peel and then finely grate the carrot. Add the oats, almond milk, chia, maple syrup, sultanas, vanilla and cinnamon to the grated carrot and mix well to combine. Cover the bowl with clingwrap, or divide the mixture into two glasses or mason jars and cover. Refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight. Serve with toppings of your choice and additional milk if the mixture is too thick.
Carrot: freshly grate your carrot - pre-grated will be too dry for this recipe and won't have as nice a flavour.
Milk: use milk of your choice. I use almond or oat milk. Add more milk when serving if you prefer a thinner texture.
Tablespoon: we use a standard Australian tablespoon which is 20 ml (4 teaspoons).
Toppings: the toppings are optional (and are not included in the nutritional information). Use toppings of your liking - see suggestions above.
