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.
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
200ml low-fat milk or fortified plant alternative
200g fortified soya yogurt or low-fat natural yogurt
Sweetener of choice, e.g., 3 chopped Medjool dates or 1 tablespoon maple syrup
Toppings of your choice (see method)
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:
