Overnight Oats

These jars are so versatile and great to prepare in the evening (all of 5 minutes) and pop in the fridge for breakfast the next morning.  It starts with a base recipe in a mason jar and you can add whatever toppings you like.  These are a staple in our house and make mornings a little less hectic!  My toddler loves these.

Ingredients (For the base): Makes 1 jar

3/4 cup Almond milk (or milk alternative)

1/3 cup Oats

1 Tbsp Chia Seeds

1 Tsp. Honey

1/2 Tsp. Cinnamon

Combine all ingredients in the jar, pop on the lid and shake to combine.  Put in the fridge overnight.  In the morning pop off the lid, throw some of your favourite toppings in and grab a spoon!  That’s right….we eat ours right out of the jar.  Easy. Simple.

Some topping ideas include:  Greek Yogurt, Blackberries & Shredded Coconut, Strawberries & Dark Chocolate chips and Banana & Sliced Almonds.   The possibilities are endless.  Get creative!

      Hmm..if you would prefer the consistency a bit thicker you could always try adding more chia seeds (these are what really thicken up the mixture) …maybe 1/2 tsp more? Or adding more oats…you would have to play around with it a bit.
