overnight oats seem to be all the craze these days in the food blogging world… why not jump on that wagon?!
 
who’s got time in the morning to boil up water/milk and sit there whisking the oats into a creamy goodness? err – def not me, we’re lucky i’m capable of assembling some sandwiches for lunch at the pre-6am hour, let alone lighting up a burner on the stove! and i dont know about you, but the plain jane instant oatmeal packets just arent cutting it for me anymore… maybe its knowing there is far better food out there 
 
so i did some conglomerating of info and recipes online to come up with a mel-able allergy free version of this goodness. ive tried out two variations the past two nights and was successful with both, now i can unleash my tested findings to you!
 
i put all of these ingredients into a tupperware before i headed to bed, stuffed it into my bag when i headed out in the morn, nuked it for one minute in the microwave, give it a stir, threw it in for almost another minute and BAM! prepare to feast on your nutrient packed tasty breakfast:
 
1/2 c. coconut milk
1/2 container of plain coconut yogurt
5 T. oats
1 T. agave nectar
1 T. chia seeds (info on these bits of goodness below)
1/2 t. cinnamon
pinch salt
any kind of berries, craisins, or fruit to your liking
 
and thats it… pretty dang easy huh?!?
 
 
here’s my version with this exact ratio 
 
in this one i did more yogurt and less milk… looks and tasted pretty much the same
 
 
and on to the chia seeds. ive been reading mounds of info on these lately and finally took the plunge to get a packet at the health food store the other day
 
they look kinda like a sesame seed but a little smaller in the dried state, but they poof up to these slimy lil bubbles when they soak up their surroundings
 
why chia seeds?
 
they are the richest plant source of Omega-3, actually they contain more than salmon!
they reduce food cravings, keeping you feeling fuller, longer
‘chia gel’ is a great source for athletes to hydrate on the go
reduce blood pressure
control blood sugar levels – great for diabetics
easier to digest than flax seeds
 
and there you have it ladies and gents! whip urself up a bowl tonight for tomorrow’s bfast, you will not be disappointed!!
