Breakfast can be a hard meal to keep healthy while still tasting delicious. Overnight oats have caught our attention recently, so we decided to see what all the fuss was about. These overnight oats are cardamom and cassia flavored, and topping them with Blueberry Lemon Jam makes for a wonderful flavorful combination. This is a breakfast that you can feel good about eating without sacrificing a delicious flavor!
In a medium container, combine the coconut milk, rolled oats, chia seeds, maple syrup, and essential oils.
Cover, and chill the oats for at least 1–2 hours, or overnight, until the mixture thickens and the oats soften.
Remove the oats from the fridge when ready to serve, and stir to combine.
Layer the oats, jam, and pear slices in a bowl or small jar. These prepared layers can be stored in the fridge for 3–4 days.
This Blueberry Lemon Jam is super delicious and really easy to make! You can use it for the overnight oats, or simply top a bagel or piece of toast with it. The lemon essential oil adds a wonderful tangy flavor to the sweet blueberries. You might need to make a double batch of this jam to last you a little longer!
In a medium pot, combine the blueberries and maple syrup, and simmer over medium-high heat for 8–10 minutes, or until the berries are softened. The blueberries will release a lot of water at this point.
Reduce the heat a little to avoid sticking, and stir in the chia seeds.
Let the mixture simmer for 8–15 minutes, stirring frequently. Simmer until most of the water cooks off and the jam thickens up.
Remove from heat, stir in the lemon juice, and transfer to a bowl.
Let the mixture cool for a few minutes before stirring in the lemon essential oil.
Place the jam in the fridge for a couple hours, allowing it to cool completely.
Leftover jam can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, or in the freezer for much longer.

We all love the dinner mints given out at fancy restaurants, but they only give you one! We decided to try our hand at chocolatiering, and we fell in love with this simple recipe. You can use your favorite dark chocolate (the darker the healthier), and the peppermint essential oil adds a nice flavor that will make it hard to stop eating these little gems.
2 packages (10 oz. each) dark chocolate melting wafers
1 package (10 oz.) white chocolate melting wafers
6–8 drops peppermint essential oil
2 drops green food coloring (optional)
Preheat the oven to 200°F (95°C).
Place the chocolate into 3 oven-safe bowls (1 package in each bowl), and warm in the oven for 20 minutes or until fully melted.
Line a cookie sheet with wax paper, making sure it covers the sides as well.
Remove one of the bowls of dark chocolate from the oven, and leave the others in to keep them melted.
Pour the first bowl of dark chocolate across the wax paper, spread the chocolate out with a spatula, and shake the pan to help create an even layer.
While that layer is drying, remove the white chocolate from the oven, and add peppermint oil and food coloring.
Wait just until the first layer of chocolate changes from glossy to matte, then pour the white chocolate on top quickly, spreading it out and shaking the pan to flatten.
Once that layer has turned matte, remove the last bowl of dark chocolate from the oven, and spread it across the top in the same manner as the other 2 layers.
Allow the chocolate to dry, then cut into squares with a sharp knife.
The trick to this recipe is knowing exactly when to pour the layers on top. If the chocolate is too wet, the layers will mix. If the chocolate is too dry, the layers won’t stick together. Watch the chocolate as it dries; it will change from glossy to matte, and at this point, you can quickly top the next layer. If they do mix a bit, no big deal! It will still taste delicious!
These chocolate bites are so good, you won’t be able to keep the kids away! They also make great snacks for your essential oil classes. Make up a tray, and give them to your attendees to demonstrate the use of essential oils in cooking.
