I’ve noticed that Overnight/Chilled Oats are a thing and is pretty popular at the moment so I decided to give a it a try. This is great as mornings are getting warmer, sometimes I don’t feel like having hot porridge for breakfast and fancy something cooler.

No cooking is involved so microwave or stove not needed, just combine and mix ingredients in a bowl, food container or a jar (apparently that’s the way to have it), and then put in the refrigerator overnight.

Below is the base recipe for the Overnight Oats for one serving:-

  • 60g of Oats
  • 150ml of Milk
  • 4 tablespoons of Greek Yogurt (I use Low Fat Yogurt)
  • 1 tablespoon of Honey
  • 1 tablespoon of Chia Seeds

Toppings: Blueberries and Rasberries

        

Sometimes I feel like being a hipster and eat it from a jar, sometimes ideal when I’m running late and I can bring it to work!

        

It actually tastes surprisingly good and feels like eating a dessert, this is also ideal for breakfast for the following reasons:-

  • Oats – contains fibre which apparently reduces cholesterol
  • Greek Yogurt – creamer than normal yogurt and has more protein
  • Chia Seeds – contains fibre that aids digestion, omega-3 fatty acids and makes you feel full and satisfied
  • Berries – low in sugar compared to most fruits, high in fibre, full of antioxidants

These are great reasons to have this for breakfast!
