Matcha Almond Fig Overnight Oats

 Matcha Overnight Oats 2

I got my hands on some gorgeous figs, and although I enjoyed some plain, some made it into my breakfast as well.  I have been making special variations of overnight oats on the weekend.  During the week I am pretty boring, just the same old spices that are cheap and quick.  But on the weekends I feel like I can play around a bit and make something special.  The one that I made with the figs, contained green tea as well.  I like to have some matcha during the day for a boost, but I figured, why not include it in my oatmeal along with the figs and some almonds?

It was a lovely colored and delicious combination.  This gave me energy for hours!  With the tea, fiber and protein (I included some vanilla powder). I need to eat things like this after a run in order to refuel and stay energized throughout the day. If you are lucky enough to get your hands on figs, you must try this.  I always kind of consider figs special because I do not find them often here.

    I've made this a few times since you posted it. I love matcha, and this is a great new (to me) way to use it. I've tried steel cut and rolled oats separately, and decided I like using half of each best! Only downside is fresh figs are hard to find in PA and not very good when you do.

      That is a good idea to mix them, I will have to try it! I think it would be good with berries too if you can't find figs.

        Yeah, I really like it with blackberries or blueberries. Also, I recently shared your recipe in the newspaper I write for! http://lancasteronline.com/features/food/the-press-table-matcha-lends-earthy-sweet-flavor-to-avocado/article_1052f936-fdbf-11e5-8992-fb60a8cc9e85.html
