One of my favorite things to have for breakfast are these Overnight Chia Oats. They are loaded with fiber, protein, healthy fat, omega 3’s, antioxidants and more, which makes them a perfect balanced breakfast. They also keep you feeling satiated for hours, without leaving you feeling sluggish or extremely full!

They are also pretty convenient. Something I like to do is prep them over the weekend and that way I can grab them and go and have them readily available throughout the week (you can also make them the night before, as well). I find this really helps me during busy or lazy mornings!

Now, if you are one of those people who prefer their oats to be warm, no need to worry… All you need to do is warm them up for about 1 minute, and then you can add your toppings (ie. nuts, nut butter, fresh fruit, etc). I do this quite often, since I really don’t care much for my oats to be cold.

Let’s talk about the ingredients you will need:

  • gluten free rolled oats 
  • unsweetened nut milk 
  • chia seeds 
  • maple syrup 
  • vanilla extract 
  • cinnamon
  • Pinch sea salt  
  • glass mason jar or glass Tupperware


  • Nut butter 
  • Raw chopped nuts (pecans, walnuts and almonds are my fave) 
  • Fresh berries, banana or fruit of choice
