This is a great recipe for when you know you’ll want something filling and healthy to keep you going throughout a busy morning. Simply assemble the ingredients in a bowl (or a jam jar if you want to take your breakfast to work) the night before and you’re good to go.
Chia seeds are high in fibre, omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants which means that they support your digestive function as well as your immune system. Combining carbohydrates (from the oats), good fats (from the nuts) and protein (from the yoghurt) will keep your blood sugar levels stable – preventing any unwanted energy dips or hunger pangs before lunch.
Combine the oats, milk, chia seeds and cinnamon in a bowl or jar and stir well. If you’re using frozen berries, add them to the mixture now too. Place in the fridge to soak overnight.
In the morning, add a little extra milk if it looks too thick – then top with your yoghurt, fruit (if you’re using fresh not frozen) and nuts. You could also add a little honey but the cinnamon and fruit should really make it sweet enough already!
