Breakfast Recipe – Overnight Oats

I love oats!  I eat them most mornings for breakfast, however recently I was getting a bit bored of having simply “Porridge” every morning.  It’s like anything that you do too much, it eventually gets boring.  So I did a bit of digging around for some recipes to see what alternatives based around oats I could use.  Welcome to Overnight Oats.  The premise of the recipe is quite simple.  It’s no bake and they are prepped overnight in the fridge.

I’ve always been a fussy eater and I’ll be the first to admit I have a REAL problem eating food in ways I’m not used to.  For example I can’t eat cold Pizza it freaks me out, my brain has a little fit screaming “it’s meant to be hot this is blasphemy” and I can’t eat it.  I was initially worried that I wouldn’t be able to eat this as my whole life I’ve only every eaten oats in one way, Hot!!!!  To my surprise and after sitting there for 5 mins staring at it, I really really enjoyed it.  Anyway please see below for the recipe:

Overnight Oats Recipe 
1/3 Cup Milk2 Teaspoons Honey
1/4 Cup Rolled Oats1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/4 Cup Greek Yogurt1/4 Cup Fruit of Choice
2 Teaspoons Chia Seeds

Don’t forget you can substitute things if you need to.  For example milk can be swapped out for your choice; Almond Milk, Soya etc.  I find this breakfast is a great addition to my Pre-Workout, plenty of slow release carbs, quite filling and just all around good for you.  For the nutritional information (Without the fruit) please see below.

    I recently discovered this too – SO AMAZING. I actually look forward to waking up (big deal for someone who’s not a morning person in the least!)

      Yeah I can relate I don’t really like mornings either. At least this is quite refreshing.
