Given so many of you liked my easy single serve choc chia pudding, I thought I would share with you my other breakfast recipe that I have been making on repeat in the last few months 😊 Again, this is a time saving make ahead breakfast that I meal prep on the weekend for the work week ahead (yes, I still meal prep now even though I am working from home) ☺️
To make this overnight oats, I simple use ingredients from my pantry such as rolled oats, almond/coconut milk and seeds such as chia seeds, hemp seeds and linseeds which are packed with healthy fats and hence, will keep you fuller for longer. And for toppings, I usually have frozen raspberries, peanut butter, desiccated coconut and nuts. But you can add whatever toppings you like, think fresh seasonal fruit such as figs, bananas, apples, nut butter of your choice and stewed fruits, just to name a few. The best part about this overnight oats is that you can have it cold straight out of the fridge or warmed up. In winter months, I tend to warm my overnight oats in the microwave and in summer, I tend to have my overnight oats straight out of the fridge. And there is added benefit of having soaked overnight oats over unsoaked oats – you can read about it here.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I have. As always, please let me know what you think of this recipe.

- 1/3 cup rolled oats (or quinoa flakes for gluten free option);
- 1/2 cup milk of your choice;
- 4 tsp seeds of your choice (I used a mix of hemp seeds, chia seeds & golden linseeds/flaxseeds);
- Optional: 1 tbsp protein powder;
- Optional: 2-3 tsp sweetener of your choice for sweeter overnight oats.
- In a small bowl/tupperware, place all the ingredients and mix until well combined;
- Allow the oat mixture to soak overnight in the fridge;
- In the morning, serve your oats with your favourite toppings. If I am having my oats cold, I typically have mine with 1/3-1/2 cup frozen raspberries warmed up in the microwave for 20-30 seconds (I like mine soft). If I want warm oats, I microwave the oats and frozen raspberries together in the microwave for 60-90 seconds. Then, I add a splash of milk (I usually use soy milk) and a tablespoon of peanut butter 🙂 YUM!
