Overnight Chia Oats

Leave a Comment
So I have embarked on the Chia Bia Challenge. For the next 2 weeks, I am going to add 2 spoonfuls of Chia Bia to my breakfast everyday and share some delicious tips with you along the way.

LOOK how fantastic this lot is, I am so looking forward to breakfast time for the next fortnight.

I feel like there is some serious oaty hype at the moment, there are entire cafe's in London who just serve up fancy bowls of porridge - heaven.
Anyway, say hello to the easiest, tastiest and most convenient recipe there is – Overnight Chia Oats.

I've been going to the gym in the morning, which means getting up at 6:15 and leaving the house by 6:45. All the work with these jars of greatness is prepared the night before. So with one eye open, I can whip one of these out of the fridge, sprinkle on my toppings and I'm good to go.

You will need:
  • Milk/Water
  • Oats (rolled oats are best for this recipe) 
  • Whole Chia Seeds
  • Honey
  • Greek yogurt (Rachel's organic or Waitrose own is the best)
  • Blueberries
  • Almonds

  • Pour your oats into a jar/cup/whatever you can get your hands on. I did around half a cup of oats.
  • Scoop in 2 Tablespoons of chia seeds and mix it all up.
  • Pour your milk in - I put milk in until it covers the oats & chia seeds, then top it up with water. The little blighters love liquid and absorb it pretty quickly, so it's probably best to put more liquid in.
  • Put in a big spoonful of honey and give it a stir.
  • Pop it in the fridge and jiggy on in to bed, you deserve a rest.
  • In the morning, take out of the fridge and top it up with a dash of milk and give it a stir.
  • Add a great big dollop of greek yogurt and a bit more honey if you're feeling sweet.
  • sprinkle with almonds & blueberries
  • TA-DAAAAA. It's ready to be eaten.

Overnight oats are incredibly easy to make and are great for your digestive system too, both the oats and chia seeds are high in fibre and balance blood sugar levels.

Chia also helps to reduce inflammation and improves circulation.

These little cuties are a great source of plant protein and the highest known plant-based source of omega-3 in the WORLD, which makes for a happy heart and brain - I'll take 100 bags please.

Herbivores, lap em up.

Even Pepper, the queen of poultry, wanted my breakfast.
