An easy and nutritious make-ahead breakfast with oats, skyr (Icelandic yogurt), almond milk and chia seeds. Topped with a simple Blueberry Cardamom Compote, these overnight oats are a very delicious and Nordic way start to your day!
For the Oats:
1 ⅓ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
¼ cup chia seeds
½ teaspoon fine sea salt
1 ⅓ cup plain skyr (Icelandic yogurt) or Greek yogurt
1 ⅓ cup milk of choice (I like unsweetened almond)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
¼ cup pure maple syrup
Additional maple syrup or honey
Additional skyr or yogurt
A dollop of nut butter (I like roasted almond butter with mine)
Whisk all ingredients together in a medium bowl. Cover and transfer to the fridge. Let sit overnight or for at least 3 hours. If you want to store the oats in individual portions, simply divide the mixture between 4 small jars and cover. Overnight oats will keep well-covered in the fridge for up to 4 days.
