Overnight oats are one of my fav breakfasts to make ahead of time as you literally put everything together in a jar and let it sit in the fridge overnight. In the morning all you need to do is take it out and eat it. Literally no 'active' waiting time!! In this recipe, I will be breaking down the basic components of overnight oats and once you know the basics, you can add any other flavours you can think of. You can also use up your chia jam in this recipe, so if you'd like to check out how to make the chia jam, click here. This breakfast usually comes to around 360 calories in total with all the healthy toppings 🌞
Difficulty: Level 0
Health factor: ⭐⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
100gr rolled oats
100ml nut milk (or normal milk, whatever you prefer)
100gr low-fat greek yoghurt (you can use greek / natural / vegan / full-fat / 0% fat, up to you but beware that it obviously will affect your total calories)
Dash of cinnamon
4tbsp chia jam
1 banana, sliced
1 handful blueberries
6 almonds, roughly chopped
2tsp maple syrup (optional)
In a large mixing bowl, mix together your oats, nut milk, yoghurt, and cinnamon. Move to a sealed container big enough to hold the ingredients. If not you could also equally measure out the 2 in 2 separate jars to make things easier for the next morning.
Put it in the fridge and let it sit overnight.
In the morning, divide the oats into 2 bowls. Add 2tbsp of chia jam in each bowl and stir through.
Top your overnight oats off with bananas, blueberries, almonds and maple syrup if desired. Enjoy!
