Perfect Weekday Breakfast

Header

Extra early morning start? Make overnight oats the night before. Breakfast will be ready and waiting for you when you wake up! Overnight oats is a great alternative to porridge, and requires no cooking. The oats and chia seeds will swell and thicken overnight making a delicious filling breakfast dish. There are a number of recipes around but this is my one.

Recipe: Berry Overnight Oats

They are ‘berry’ good!

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 heaped cup frozen berries
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (optional)

Step 1 before stirring

1. Add everything to a bowl or mason jar and stir

2. Cover with cling film or the mason jar lid and chill overnight

3. Remove cling film, stir once more, and eat!

(Note: All of my photos are from overnight oats I only left for around 3/4 of an hour (long story…) rather than overnight. Chilling overnight is recommended for a thicker result – hence the name ‘Overnight oats’  obviously!)

Basic Nutrition:

This breakfast provides a great source of slow-release energy and iron from the oats, fibre and a number of other nutritional benefits from the chia seeds (a superfood tracing back to Aztec times), calcium in the milk, and vitamins from the berries.
