These easy berry overnight oats are a healthy and delicious breakfast that you can make ahead for busy mornings. Made in less than five minutes, all the hard work is done in the fridge overnight!
Overnight oats make a quick and convenient breakfast for rushed mornings. They also make a handy and portable breakfast (or snack) that you can take to work and school. One less thing to worry about in the morning rush!
The beauty about these clever oats is that all of the ingredients are stirred together in a jar and come together overnight. No cooking, no mess, no worries.
These easy berry overnight oats are packed full of healthy ingredients like chia seeds, fruit, cinnamon and oats. I used almond milk in this recipe, but you could use any other preferred milk.
Make these oats with any berries you like and mix the flavours up with your own favourite ingredients. Try apple, strawberry and cinnamon, blueberries with a little lemon juice or raspberry and coconut. Banana and chia is also a lovely combination. I used some beautiful, juicy blackberries that my mother in law gave me- and they were so yum!
Eat straight from the jar, or add these oats into smaller containers for school lunches. You can even freeze them into lunchbox portions. Delicious hot or cold, serve with a scoop of vanilla yoghurt and extra fresh berries.
- 2/3 cup rolled oats
- 3 tbs chia seeds
- 2/3 cup almond milk or milk of your choice
- 1/2 tbs vanilla bean paste
- 1/4 cup berries of your choice
- 1 grated apple
- 1/4 cup apple juice
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2-3 tbs maple syrup or sweetener of your choice
- 2 tbs currants
- TO SERVE
- Vanilla yoghurt
- Extra berries
Combine all of the ingredients together in a mason jar or other airtight container. I used a jar that has a 2 cup (500ml) capacity.
Stir the contents until they are combined. Place the lid on the jar and leave in the fridge overnight, or for at least six hours.
The oats and chia will thicken and soak in the liquid to set. Top with yoghurt and extra berries to serve.
