Overnight Lactation Oatmeal with Chia Seeds & Flaxseeds



Overnight oats/oatmeal in mason jars seems to be the latest new food craze on the web recently. So, I jump on the bandwagon as well.

Since I'm still breastfeeding my baby, I look up for recipes good for lactation. In fact, oats/oatmeal is a wonderful milk booster for me.

Here's my version, adapted from here and here.

Overnight Lactation Oatmeal with Chia Seeds & Flaxseeds
(Serves one)


Ingredients:

1 cup rolled oats (not instant or quick-cook oats)
1 cup milk (either fresh milk or non-dairy milk such as almond milk and rice milk)
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon flaxseeds
1 tablespoon black sesame powder
1 teaspoon Brewer's Yeast (not regular bread yeast)
1 teaspoon molasses sugar (can use brown sugar or muscovado sugar)
½ teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

How to:

1. The night before: Mix oats, chia seeds, flaxseeds, black sesame powder, Brewer's Yeast, sugar, vanilla extract, and milk in a small bowl. Mix thoroughly to ensure the chia seeds do not clump together. Cover mixture and place it in the refrigerator overnight.

2. The next morning: Give the oats mixture a few turns with a spoon. The oats and chia will have absorbed the milk overnight and should be the perfect consistency. If the oats seem to be a bit too thick, add more milk until you reach your desired consistency.

3. You can eat it plain or with your preferred toppings* (e.g. berries, dried fruits, nuts, cookies, etc.)

* Toppings that I have tried: Dried apricots, crumbled digestive biscuits, sliced bananas.
