Berry Chia Overnight Oats

Berry Chia Overnight Oats
It’s Sunday night and everyone in the house is scrambling to get ready for the work/school week. Before you know it, your alarm goes off and you are running around trying to get everyone in order – it’s Monday already? Half asleep, everyone piles into the car and head to school or the office and someone yells out – we forgot breakfast! Starting your day without a healthy nutritious meal makes it hard to concentrate.

To avoid days like this (and I know we have all had them), I have a make-ahead recipe that is a grab and go meal packed with nutrients that would give you all the energy you need for school, your first meeting of your day or tackle that chore list you have set out to do.

Overnight oats are so easy to make. Add your favorite fruit on top for a little extra boost and dig in!

Servings: 3

Ingredients

• Take out 3 class jars (I recycle our glassware, but you can use whatever you have on hand).
• Place ½ cup oats in each jar.
• Add ¼ cup chia seeds.
• Pour in 1 cup of vanilla almond milk (you can use soy milk, cashew milk or regular milk).
• Stir in a pinch of salt, a pinch of cinnamon and a drizzle of honey, agave nectar or maple syrup (I use local honey from the farmer’s market).

Directions

o First thing in the morning, set your overnight oats on the counter and spoon your favorite fruit on top. I like to add fresh strawberries and blueberries. Sometimes I’ll add a spoonful of applesauce and another pinch of cinnamon.

Notes: I like to have a few different topping options available for our family and each person can finish off their oats just the way they like them. A little trick to get everyone involved in breakfast!

Toppings may include: coconut shavings, yogurt, granola, various fruits, flax seeds and carob chips or mini chocolate morsels.
