Overnight oats and chia breakfast bowl

My Mum has taught me well, I am sure that you all have heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Well, I couldn’t agree more. I cannot start my day without a good breakfast.

Last year when I was commuting to work I would prepare my breakfast the night before. This allowed me to save time in the mornings, I would mix almond milk to dried fruits and oats and then put it in the fridge. My breakfast would then be ready for me to take to the office the next morning. I always loved how the oats had absorbed the milk and the raisins had become plump and chewy.

I have since discovered chia seeds and realised how much better this recipe is with them. It is so quick and easy, and the next morning you have a delicious, filling and healthy breakfast.

No excuses, eat your breakfast.

Serves 2

  • 60g whole oats
  • 2 tbs chia seeds
  • 300ml almond milk
  • 60g raisins
  • 40g whole almonds
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbs mixed seeds
  • 40g blueberries

Mash the banana and place into a large bowl. Add the oats, chia seeds, raisins, almonds and cinnamon. Stir in the almond milk and mix it all together thoroughly. Cover the bowl with cling film and leave overnight in the fridge.

Divide the mixture into two portions and serve with the mixed seeds and blueberries.
