I love figs. And Sundays. And breakfast. So as you can imagine this one kinda ticks all the boxes for me. I love love love waking up to a pre prepped breakfast. Be it overnight oats or chia seed pudding I feel a little smug knowing when I wake up breakfast is already done and my only responsibility is to now make it pretty… Specially since its Sunday -so I don’t need to worry about making any thing else pretty. It’s an un tamed hair and no makeup time. Sheets stripped from all the beds time. House generally upside down time. And all of this gets ignored as there is book or a bike ready and waiting for me… ahh Sunday how I love you 🧡
Anyway I digress. This Breakfast is so so simple to make and in winter months (you know for people not living in Florida) you can gently heat this recipe and serve with a warm fruit compote. These puddings and overnight oats really are so so versatile. The combinations are endless.
For some other suggestions here are a some other flavour combinations :
This recipe with Orange water and figs tips the scale a little in a fall flavour category. But works beautifully together.
This serves one but can be very easily multiplied up.
If using the Buckwheat I always soak this separate as it needs a good rinse the next morning. If not skip this step and top with nuts or seeds instead.
3Tbs Chia Seeds
2 Tbs Oats (optional)
3/4 Cup of almond Milk
1 Tsp Orange water
1 Tsp something sweet – maple honey agave
1Tbs Buckwheat groats
Fresh fruit of choice
Pop everything from the pudding recipe into a jar and give a good shake. Let it sit for half an hour or so and shake again. Then pop in the fridge overnight.
If you’re using the buckwheat groats. Also pop them into a separate jar. Top with water and leave overnight.
The next morning prep the pudding and rinse the buckwheat.
Top with figs or other fruit and various nuts or seeds. Come on guys, make it pretty! Then a final sprinkling of zest. It’s just that easy.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
