Monday mornings are hectic at our house. Everyone is up early and has left the house by 7:15am. I have been trying to figure out how to ensure Mondays flow a bit easier.

Then I remembered overnight oats!! They seriously tick all the boxes for a quick, healthy breakfast, and they’re kid friendly. #winning

Complex carbs – check

Protein – check

Fibre – check

Tastes great – check!

So you want to know my recipe?

Here it is!

Ingredients (per person):

To a glass jar add:

1/2 cup Organic rolled oats

1 tbsp chia seeds or flax meal

1/2 cup milk (I use coco quench because we’re dairy free)

1 tbsp local raw honey or maple syrup (optional)

2 tbsp nut butter ( I use Mayver’s dark roasted crunchy Peanut Butter)


Add ingredients to jar, stir and leave in fridge overnight.

Slice some fresh fruit and add on top when serving in the morning. (I use berries and apple)

If it’s a little gluggy for your liking, add some extra milk on top.

Oh and cinnamon goes so nicely on top too!

Other options:

1 tbsp shredded coconut

1 tbsp sultanas or cranberries

1 tbsp walnuts (they go so nicely with ripe pear)

Switch nuts for sunflower seeds or pepitas (if you’re nut free)
