Most of us have already gone back to school or work.. so I thought I would share with you my favourite breakfast to have on the go.
I never skip breakfast and usually always eat it at the table. But this year, I have an early class and this overnight chia-oats (+coffee in my reusable cup) is perfect for the train so I can get an extra 15min in bed.
This recipe is another great breakfast mealprep that’s super easy and quick to make. It takes 3min to prep and you can run out of door with it in the morning (just don’t forget your spoon…)! They also last 3-5 days in the fridge so you can make a few at a time for the week.
I’ve had overnight chia pudding before, and while I think they’re heavy as I’m eating it, I find myself getting hungry not long after. However, the recipe I’m sharing with you today also includes a banana and oats – which fills me up until lunch!
You can top it with so many different things. Great combinations include: mango/pineapple and coconut chips, chocolate chips and berries, apple and cinnamon, blueberries and lemon zest, figs and honey, pistachio and raspberries, etc.
*This isn’t my personal recipe but I still wanted to share it with you, and I made a few adjustments. (Original)
- 1 small banana (ripe if possible)
- 2 tablespoons of chia seeds
- 1/2 cup of rolled oats
- 3/4 cup of almond milk
- Toppings: fresh fruits, granola, coconut chips, chocolate chips, lemon zest, almonds, honey or maple syrup, yoghurt, etc.
- Optional: replace the banana with 1/3 cup of yoghurt.
- Optional #2: add a scoop of protein powder
Using a plate, mash the banana and add the chia seeds. Mix well and transfer to a mason or jam jar.
Add the oats and almond milk. Close the jar and shake shake shake! If you’re using frozen fruits, add them now as well so that they defrost.
Refrigerate overnight (or for at least 2 hours).
In the morning, add your toppings and enjoy!
BON APPÉTIT! ❤
