Oats are definitely a favourite for us, and with matcha added it's a win-win! If you've never heard of "overnight oats" before.. they're oats that don't need to be cooked because the mixture is left for a period of time, which helps it absorb. If you're looking for an easy breakfast to prepare in advance for the morning (and still want to get in your matcha fix) these Matcha Overnight Oats are an excellent choice!
Matcha makes for the perfect morning treat as it's packed with healthy antioxidants and natural caffeine. The natural caffeine found in matcha will help your energy levels throughout the day without giving you that "crash" feeling we can sometimes get from coffee. Matcha also contains L-theanine, which can help promote feelings of relaxation by increasing levels of the neurotransmitter GABA in the brain. Not to mention oats are loaded with healthy fiber and can also help stabilize blood sugar levels. This is fantastic for helping lower cholesterol and in preventing heart disease.
