Overnight Oat and Chia Porridge Recipe

Try this creamy no-cook overnight chia seeds and oat porridge for a healthy start to your day. Oats are a great source of beta-glucans, which are known to decrease blood cholesterol and reduce the rise in blood glucose and therefore the insulin response after a meal. Both oats and chia seeds are fantastic sources of dietary fibre, in fact this porridge gives you almost 15g fibre, half your daily requirements. Oats and chia seeds also both have a healthy balance of healthy fats, good quality protein and energy giving carbohydrates, and they both keep you fuller longer, making this porridge ideal breakfast food.

Method

  • Simply put the oats, chia seeds and milk alternative or coconut yoghurt plus water in a bowl, stir to combine, cover, and allow to soak overnight in the fridge.
  • In the morning, or when ready to eat, stir the porridge, add a little water if needed to get your preferred consistency. Add toppings of your choice (fresh fruits such as banana and blueberries, dried fruits such as goji berries, seeds such as shelled hemp seeds, etc) and serve.
  • You may also choose to multiply the recipe, as the soaked oats and chia will safely keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.
