I recently jumped on the overnight oats bandwagon (a bit late, I know), but I think i’ve now found my favourite recipe, which lets you get your morning coffee and oatmeal all in one go. The oats and chia seeds combo helps keep you full all morning, whilst the coffee provides your caffeine hit. They’re also good as a mid-morning or pre-gym snack.
I am not exaggerating about the prep time. It will take you no longer than TWO minutes to prepare. So there’s really no excuse now to not start the day with a healthy breakfast every morning!! These should be prepared the night before in a mason jar, bowl, or tupperware box, so you can just quickly grab and go in the morning. You can use your milk of choice, I personally prefer full fat milk as you end up with a nice creamy coffee. Feel free to leave out the honey if you normally don’t put sugar in your coffee!
Prep time: 2 minutes (overnight refrigeration required)
- 50g rolled oats
- 3 tablespoons instant coffee (in liquid form)
- 100ml milk of your choice
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- Dash of honey (to taste)
- In your mason jar, mix your oats, milk, chia seeds and honey together. Pour the coffee over the mixture and stir.
- Refrigerate overnight.
