1. India - Chai Spiced Overnight Oats
These take ten minutes to prepare the night before and are perfect for busy mornings - make in a tupperware and throw into your bag for an on the go breakfast. I used to love a Starbucks chai latte as a treat but this recipe has that flavour without all the sugar. The sunflower, flax, pumpkin and hempseed in the multi-seed porridge give it extra texture and flavour too.
Here's how - steep a chai teabag (I like Yogi Tea Sweet Chai) in 150ml of hot water for 7 minutes and let it cool. In a bowl mix a quarter of a cup of oats, chopped dried mango, desiccated coconut and a pinch of cinnamon and pour over the cooled tea. Pop in the fridge overnight. In the morning, add a splash of unsweetened almond milk, give a good mix and top with more dried mango and coconut.
2. Japan - Matcha Green Tea Oats
Matcha is packed with antioxidants and after my matcha tour I couldn't resist making a matcha porridge. Matcha contains a natural source of caffeine so it's perfect for sleepy mornings too. I buy my matcha in powder form in a Japanese supermarket but Teapigs sell it online if you can't track it down.
Here's how - in a large bowl mix 1/4 cup of oats, half a cup of unsweetened almond milk, a heaped teaspoon of matcha powder and a few drops of stevia (optional). Microwave for two minutes, stir and microwave for little longer depending on how thick you like your porridge. Top with dark chocolate buttons to add a little indulgence (and because dark chocolate and matcha taste amazing together).
3. USA - Blueberry and Almond Cookies
Cookies for breakfast? Oh yes. These also make a great snack and can be wrapped in foil and transported easily. The original inspiration for these comes from Blogilates.
Here's how - mash a very ripe banana in a bowl with a fork and add a cup of oats. I mixed in almonds and dried blueberries but anything goes! Bake at a medium temperature for 15 minutes, until the oats are turning golden.
