RECIPE: Almond Joy Chia Overnight Oats

Tuesday, February 18, 2014

Why weren't overnight oats around when I was a kid??  Seriously, the breakfast game has jumped leaps and bounds from when I was a child.  I used to hate breakfast, and now days - I can't function without eating in the morning.

WHAT? ANOTHER BREAKFAST RECIPE??  I know, I know - a trend is happening here at 91D.  Other recipes are soon to follow, but lately - I've been on a breakfast kick, can you roll with it? I hope so!  I'm just loving the freshness of it all and could probably eat it for lunch and dinner too!

Its been over a year since I've seen countless overnight oat recipes, and I never tried it til now.  What a mistake that was!  Such an easy breakfast on the go and its packed full of whole grains, protein and a ton of nutrients you need to get a healthy start to the day.  The milk and/or yogurt softens the oats perfectly and its just the perfect make a head breakfast to take with you on the go!

Almond Joy Chia Overnight Oats
1/4 c rolled oats
1/3 c milk (I use Almond Milk)
1/4 c low fat coconut greek yogurt
2 tsp Chia seeds

Chocolate nibs or morsels
Sliced Almonds

Combine first four ingredients and let set overnight.  Top with toppings and mix in the morning.

Do you have a favorite on the go breakfast, or other toppings you like to include with your overnight oats?

  1. I've never tried chia seeds before but I've heard they're great for breakfast! I have to go and look if I can find any at my local grocery store :)

  2. I got mine at a health food store. Sometimes they are sold in bulk which is nice, so you can buy some within your budget to try it out!

  3. my friends all "eww" at me because i like my oatmeal made on the spot with boiling water. i'll add honey and greek yog only after... i'm afraid if i'll try it with milk it will taste so much nicer and i wont have it quick and cheap anymoreeee
