隔夜燕麥粥(Overnight oats)在近幾年從歐美流行到台灣，我也是在約一年前接觸到它，現在也是我早餐的選擇之一。也是要打這篇時才突然發現我好像還沒有分享我自己固定的隔夜粥食譜，近期拍照後再分享，這篇要分享的是很適合當點心或甜點的 全素椰奶隔夜燕麥杯。
Overnight oats get their way into Taiwan a few years ago, and I met them about a year ago. Now they are often appear on my desk in the morning. And it is not until this moment that I realize that I haven’t shared my overnight oat recipe yet. It’ll coming soon. I promise. But this time I’d like to share this Vegan Coconut Overnight Oats that are suit for dessert or snack time.
喔對，另外這個食譜還有加入一樣台灣比較少見的食譜：小荳蔻粉 (Ground cardamom)。記得也是在去年才認識小荳蔻的，它很適合加入甜點，增加風味。我是在網路上買小荳蔻，自己用研磨機磨碎後再過篩使用。如果你沒那麼喜歡，或是真的覺得不好取得，不加也無妨，但可能就是少了一丁點風味。
I saw this recipe by Angela Liddon on oh she glows a while ago. It is also the main reference for my Blueberry Chia Jam post. In fact, I have watched a similar recipe by Dani on YouTube before that time. So when this recipe seems to be déjà vu, but it definitely tastes creamier thanks to the oats. What’s more, the overnight oats are an eye-catcher with the additional jam layer.
BTW, this recipe also has one special ingredient: ground cardamom, which is not so common in Taiwan… yet ( I guess). It was also a stranger to me not until a year ago. It is suit for dessert or snack recipes. I bought my cardamom online and ground them by myself in my coffee grinder and sift them before using. If you don’t like cardamom or find them hard to get, then I’ll say just skip them and continue. But the result may be less flavorful due to the omitting ingredient.
In the original recipe, Angela adds some chopped pears on top. But since now is not the pear season and I just got no fruits that suit for this recipe on my hand, I decided to use my regular old friend: sliced almonds. Sure you could add any nuts, fruits you want, or granola would be great, too. We make them for ours own, so make them as you like. Make them work best for you.
Common overnight oats do not have layers, but this one has. And it is the additional layer element that make it look more awesome and beautiful. It is also one of the reason that I was attracted to this recipe. Humans brains are working visually, right?
This recipe is really similar to regular overnight oat recipes. The main difference is the “milk” used. Regular overnight oats often use dairy milk or almond milk. This recipe calls for coconut milk, which makes it taste creamier and richer, more like a dessert.
FYI, even though I say “a dessert,” it actually use very little sugar (maple syrup in this case). The sweetness is really subtle. If you are a “sweet” person, you could add more to taste, but I find the little sweetness is enough and works fine for me. The coconut flavor goes well with the cinnamon and cardamom flavor. With added blueberry chia jam layer, I really cannot hold myself back from finishing a jar at one time.
So, here we go!
