Recipe | Overnight oats, an update

2014-02-27 08.50.21

I posted last year about my love for overnight oats. I’ve modified my recipe a smidge since then, so here’s the update. I eat it pretty much every week day, and it keeps me full until lunchtime easily!

30g oats//10g chia seeds//150g or 3/4 cup non dairy milk//couple of drops of almond extract

Weigh out your ingredients and put in a tub with a lid. Add the milk and extract, give it a stir, put the lid on, and wait until morning!

I still top mine with pumpkin seeds, flaked almonds, and raisins and it hasn’t got boring yet! This is a very cheap breakfast as oats can cost as little as 75p for a massive bag, chia seeds are £3.50 for me from my local health food shop for a big bag, and milk is about £1.38 for a litre carton where I am.

What do you eat for breakfast? I keep seeing these banana and egg pancakes which  I want to try out, but always on the hunt for more things to try which are easy to take to work!

    I’m really loving soaked buckwheat for breakfast at the moment, hope to put up a recipe soon! But overnight oats are always good in this weather, love that you add some almond extract too!
