Make-Ahead Overnight Oats Chia Pudding with Berries
I’m not much of a morning person. Some mornings, even scrambling eggs or toasting bread sounds like way too much effort. But because of my blood sugar issues (thanks a lot, PCOS), it’s so important for me to eat breakfast.
So my never-fails, all-time favorite breakfast recipe is overnight oats or chia pudding.
In this case, a beautiful combo of the two that is super easy to make (seriously, we’re talking about pouring three ingredients into a jar and setting in your fridge the night before), but totally delicious and wholesome.
Did I mention overnight oats chia pudding takes ZERO time to make in the morning? This is my kind of breakfast. The kind where you can open your fridge and pull out something already made that’s healthy and satisfying.
This overnight oatmeal chia pudding is naturally gluten-free, naturally vegan (almond milk for the win!), dairy free, and just so delicious I can hardly believe I spent less than one minute preparing it.
Seriously, are you guys familiar with the trendy concept of overnight oatmeal or chia pudding? The beauty of this recipe is that you add your oats (I recommend gluten-free steel cut oatmeal) or chia seeds (or both!) to a mason jar (really, any old jar or bowl will do) and top with your dairy-free milk of choice.
The liquid will “cook” your oatmeal and/or plump up your chia seeds into a chewy texture that’s totally addicting and super good for you!
That’s it. Stir together, cover, and set in your fridge. When you wake the next morning, a delicious breakfast awaits, full of protein, fiber, and healthy fats (the three tenants of a healthy breakfast!).
Top with some fresh berries (you can use any variety you like, such as strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries) or your fruit of choice, maybe a drizzle of honey or maple syrup, and you are good to go!
Mornings just got a whole lot easier. Cheers to that!
Home Chef Tip: Almond milk and coconut milk both work beautifully in this recipe, but you could even just go for water to keep things light and easy.
