Today I bring you my all-time-fave breakfast.. and this time it’s been jazzed up.. Over Night Oats with Chia Seeds.
This breakfast tastes good enough to be a dessert.. and it’s so creamy that you would never guess that it’s actually good for you!! Oats are a fantastic source of soluble fibre which helps lower cholesterol and they also have a low glycaemic index, which means that you will be left feeling fuller for longer
Now, this recipe does require a little bit of organisation but to be honest it’s not an awful lot (it’s just throwing together a load of ingredients in a bowl and popping them in a fridge!). Over-night oats are super versatile as you can add any topping of your choice.. any fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, or even coconut the choice is yours!
P.S If you don’t have any chia seeds then check out my original Over-Night Oats Recipe!
*Nutrition stats provided include the chia seeds (high in healthy fat) but not the toppings
- 1/2 cup (40g) Porridge Oats
- 1/2 cup (125ml) Vanilla Yoghurt (fat-free)
- 2/3 cup (160ml) Unsweetened Almond milk
- 1 tbsp of Chia Seeds*
- Pinch of Cinnamon (optional)**
And at your desk.. add your chosen topping! Mine was blueberries and banana
*chia seeds are a fantastic source of protein, healthy fats including omega3 (for heart health), calcium and fibre, and they expand to create a deliciously creamy texture.. this also helps you to feel fuller for longer!
**I have also tried mixing a tbsp of PB2 into my over-night oats (before chilling) which tasted amazing!
The night before, mix your oats in a bowl with the yoghurt, milk, chia seeds (optional) and cinnamon (optional)
Cover and pop in the fridge
The next day top with your chosen toppings and enjoy the creaminess!!
