Good morning! Today I want to inspire you to make a healthy breakfast. This is my favourite go-to breakfast recipes of beetroot overnight oats! It is my healthier take on the traditional Swiss style breakfast bowl of Bircher muesli. I love the taste of Bircher Muesli and I wanted to make it simpler, instead of grating and chopping the fruit and vegetables, I preferred blending it together. I also wanted to make it more nutrient dense, so I included nuts and chia seeds. I keep changing the fruit and vegetable combinations, but this one is my favourite!

This breakfast recipe for beetroot overnight oats is super simple and really good for your gut especially if it is made using fermented yogurt with live cultures. I use home fermented dairy yogurt to make this breakfast bowl but you can also use coconut or any other plant based yogurt as long as it is fermented. Soaking these oats overnight means you do not need to cook it later and is in fact also a raw breakfast bowl. The soaking process helps to soften the rolled oats and make it quite creamy in texture.

If you have not realised already, beetroot is one of my favourite vegetables to use in both savoury and sweet dishes! Packed with antioxidants and fibre, this sweetish root is a perfect healthy vegetable to be adding to your diet regularly. For this beetroot overnight oats, I use a combination of organic beetroot and apple as a vegetable and fruit base and then add in some soaked nuts and cinnamon for flavour and texture. I mix in some chia seeds along with oats to add a good dose of plant based protein and fibre.

    This one looks delish, Megs. I have been making overnight oats lately for breakfast and this will be a perfect twist to my usual, peanut butter-berries-banana combo. Thanks!

    Hi meghna, I loved the receipe . I don’t have chia seeds so I could not add it when I made my beetroot overnight oats but it was a very fulfilling and easy to make breakfast! I substituted milk instead of yogurt.

      Hi!! Looks like you created something new yourself! Yogurt is really good for your gut health especially if home fermented. Try it next time with yogurt for a better effect on your tummy!:)

Hi! Thanks of stopping by!
