Overnight Oats

I lived off these in the summer, as believe it or not, I didn’t fancy porridge for once!

I’ve already posted a recipe for chia pudding, but I really like this mix of both oats and chia seeds instead for a more filling breakfast.  You can just do the below purely with oats, but I like the added oomph of the chia seeds, as I find the extra protein keeps me fuller a lot longer.

Again, below is just the simple recipe, but there are so many variations you can make you’ll find you’ll never eat the same one twice!


Overnight Oats

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon oats.  Use gluten free if you are intolerant to oat gluten
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • 1 cup of milk of your choice.  I tend to keep mine dairy free by using either coconut milk or almond milk
  • Flavourings.  I love to use fresh or frozen berries, shredded coconut, cacao, vanilla paste, bananas, almond extract, nut butters…

Method

  1. Add in to a jar the oats, chia seeds and milk of choice.  Stir through
  2. Add your flavourings if using, and stir through again
  3. Place in the fridge.  If you can, after 20 minutes, stir the jar around and you will be able to see the chai seeds and oats thickening up
  4. Leave in the fridge overnight.  In the morning, top with fruits or nuts of your choice, and grab and go!
  5. This is a perfect breakfast, but is also a great dessert or snack

My favourite combination which tastes like a Bakewell Tart, is the overnight oats mixed with almond milk and almond extract, and a few fresh strawberries chopped up.  I then add more fruit in the morning…it is AMAZING!
