Breakfast on the Go with Overnight Oats

If you haven’t taken part in the Overnight Oats breakfast trend, you should totally give it a try! Overnight Oats are very easy to prepare and can be packed in jar for those with rushed mornings. The 1/3 cup of large flake oats in this recipe provides 3g Fibre and 4g Protein – A perfect way to load up on long-lasting energy before a run or a busy day!


While the base is always the same: oats, yogurt, milk and whole chia seeds, overnight oats can be very versatile as you can customize them the way you like. For every 1/3 cup oats you can use 1/3 cup yogurt (use Greek for a protein boost), ½ – ¾ cup milk and 2-3 tsp chia seeds. The oats will soak up the liquid from the milk / yogurt, and the chia seeds will make the mixture pudding-like. If you are aiming for tropical flavors, try using coconut milk and vanilla extract, sweeten with honey and top with mangoes.

Here I share with you a Blueberry Vanilla version:
