You guys know how much I love easy recipes! As much as I often wish that I could do the whole fancy/chef/advanced cook thing (bahaha!), one of my life motto’s tends to be the driving force behind my easy/lazy girl recipes: know thyself.

What are Overnight Oats?
Overnight oats are a healthy breakfast or snack that it super easy to whip up and prep ahead. They are usually eaten cold and consist of rolled oats, flavorings (spices, fruit & vanilla etc) and liquid.

I like to use nut milk to make my chia overnight oats, almond milk is my favorite but you could use any milk be it dairy, coconut milk or cashew milk.

Why You Should Incorporate Chia Seeds into Your Diet
Chia seeds are awesome and so healthy and good for us. They are packed full of fiber, protein and omega 3 fatty acids plus they’re an unprocessed whole grain so they can be absorbed by the body as seeds, unlike flax seeds. It’s safe to say that chia seeds are full of goodness.

The great thing about them is that you can easily add them to salads, smoothies or breakfast recipes like these chia overnight oats. They absorb a lot of liquid so are great for making healthy puddings and desserts too!

Top Tip: Keep them in a little jar in your kitchen so next time you whip up a smoothie or avo toast just sprinkle them on top for an added health boost, simple!

I like to meal prep these for the week by combining everything except for the almond milk in jars and keeping them in the refrigerator. The night before I plan on eating them, I fill one (or two, if Cody’s joining me) up with almond milk and let it sit overnight. The next morning it’s ready to go!

Top Tip for Making Chia Overnight Oats
A note about these Easy Blueberry Chia Overnight Oats: the chia seeds soak up a ton of liquid! If you enjoy your overnight oats pretty thick, these should be perfect. However, if you would prefer more liquid, simply add a splash of almond milk to the overnight oats in the morning!
