Overnight Oats

I have tried a couple of overnight oats recipes before this, but for this Ramadan I decided to go hunting for a new one and stumbled upon this one on Wholefully. They have a classic recipe which serves as the base recipe upon which you could whip up some other flavours to make it more interesting. The classic recipe calls for the normal stuff like rolled oats, milk and greek yogurt. For flavour, they also add some other ingredients such as maple syrup, salt and vanilla extract. They also add some superfood goodness of chia seeds or grounded flax seed to thicken the mixture.  

The Classic Recipe
For today's sahur, however, I didn't add the chia seed (coz I don't have any with me today, will add them in my next batch) and skipped on the suggested flavouring scheme and went with Kurma Milk instead. (Totally knicked this idea from @rinsramli as I bumped into her while going to the groceries to get the stuff for this recipe yesterday). So that made my base recipe.  

Banana Chocolate Chip
To make matters slightly more interesting for @azrulx this morning, we tried the banana chocolate chip variety. I put the chocolate chips in the mixture the night before together with the base recipe. Come sahur time, I quickly sliced half a banana and poured some granola mix on top of it. 

There are some other varieties that I thought looked kinda interesting on the page: 
Chocolate Peanut Butter
Tropical Fruit
Strawberry Cheesecake
Chocolate Coconut

There were some others too that was an interesting combination but a bit too adventurous for my taste profile. These include the Carrot Cake and Pumpkin Spice flavours. Check out the Wholefully page for the full recipe.

OK, Selamat mencuba. Do tell me how you would like to have your Overnight Oats. ;)
