Ultimate Overnight Oats

Prep time 10 min cook time 0 min serves 2 Super Easy

This is the ultimate on-the-run breakfast. You can have everything done the night before and just grab it running out the door in the morning for a filling and nourishing breakfast filled with ingredients like oats, seeds and soya yogurt that are great for your heart and your gut health. We love using dates as the wholefood sweetener because they lend a deep toffee flavour that also provides fibre and other nutrients.

The night before, put the oats, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, sweetener, yogurt and milk into two glass jars and mix. Place the lids on the jars and chill in the fridge overnight.

In the morning, pimp your oats with as many textures and flavours as you like. In the picture, we use banana and almonds. Here are more ideas:

      • Something crunchy – toasted nuts (flaked almonds, pine nuts, walnuts), toasted seeds (sunflower, sesame, pumpkin, chia), reduced-sugar granola, toasted coconut flakes
      • Something fruity – frozen berries, stewed apple and cinnamon, fruit compote, freshly sliced fruit
      • Something creamy – soya yogurt, low-fat yogurt, coconut yogurt, any nut butter or nut butter powder
      • Something sweet – chopped dates, date syrup, maple syrup, cinnamon, few drops of vanilla extract, raisins, dried mango
