Challenge #18: Overnight Powerhouse Porridge

Today, I'm sharing my fave breakfast with you  - it's a classic with a superfood twist. Oh, & the best part is that it cooks overnight so you can say buh bye to that morning cortisol ;)

Updated to add:
 - Double up this recipe to make enough to last you all week. The oats will keep for 5 days in the fridge
 - Don't zap the nutrients out of the oats when reheating in the morning - just simmer with a bit of water or coco oil in a pan
 - When using nuts & seeds in your recipes - it is best to also soak these to breakdown the enzyme inhibitors & increase the vitamin content. This makes them easier to digest & absorb. If you're not using the nuts & seeds right away that you've just soaked, you should put them in a dehyrdator or in the oven at the lowest temp to dry them out. (to prevent mold). I will often soak & dehyrdrate big batches of nuts & seeds to have on hand.
Recommended Soaking Times: (make sure all nuts are raw)
~ Almonds: 8-12hrs
~ Cashews: 2 hrs
~ Hazelnuts: 6-8 hrs
~ Pecans: 6-8 hrs
~ Walnuts: 6-8 hrs
~ Pine Nuts: 6-8 hrs
~ Pumpkin Seeds: 6-8 hrs
~ Sunflower Seeds: 6-8 hrs
