This breakfast recipe (overnight chia oats) will take you 30 seconds to make – pop it in the fridge overnight and wake up to a beautiful breakfast, all lovely and ready to eat straight from the fridge! Just add some chopped nuts and a drizzle of honey in the morning and you’re good to go!
30g rolled oats
1 tablespoon chia seeds
150-200ml milk or milk alternative / or natural yoghurt
Handful frozen berries
Handful frozen blueberries
1 teaspoon runny honey
Pop the milk and the frozen berries into a blender, like a Nutribullet or whatever you have.
Add the oats and chia seeds to a little pot, a bowl or if you’re trying to be fancy – a Kilner jar.
Mix the berry milk mixture to the oats/chia seeds and mix well with a fork or spoon.
Pop in the fridge overnight. The chia seeds will thicken the mixture.
In the morning, crumble the walnuts over the top and add a little teaspoon of honey to sweeten if you need to. DELICIOUS. You can add some extra frozen blueberries to the top in the morning too for added yum.
This recipe will also double up as a great snack too, if you don’t have time to leave it overnight, give it at least 2-3 hours in the fridge to allow the oats to soak up the milk, and allow the chia seeds to start setting the mixture. A lot of people ask me if you could have this heated up, if you prefer to have it hot – I would leave the chia seeds out and instead increase the volume of oats to 40-5og instead. But yes, it would work nicely as a warm breakfast too for those crisp winter mornings that are coming in now!
Hope you enjoy it, and don’t forget to share if you do!
