OVERNIGHT OATS

Chocolate Overnight Oats with Chia Seeds

All you hear about is overnight oats lately and I’m so horrible about eating breakfast that I figured I’d give it a try.  After some research (because where else do you start?) I found one with chia seeds that sounded yummy.

INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1

Get your Ingredients

I’m all about my mise .  So my first step is always to get all the ingredients laid out and ready to go.  Not so important with this recipe but it still makes the process easier.  I never used to do this before we had a dishwasher because there was no reason to make more dishes than I need to.

STEP 2

Combine

This breakfast can’t be any easier to make.  You literally mix the dry ingredients together.  I like to do this so you don’t end up with weird clumps, then add the wet and give it one more mix.

STEP 3

Chill

You need to let is sit overnight.  I added it to a clip top Tupperware and let it chill in the fridge overnight.  Just like the title tells you to do.  

STEP 4

Enjoy

Voila, Chocolate overnight oats!

This is the most fun part in my opinion.  The recipe didn’t call for toppings but even with yogurt I need something to give it texture.  A little more greek yogurt, walnuts, raspberry jam and fresh raspberry.  

Who doesn’t love the combo of chocolate and raspberry so this was a great choice.   I don’t know if I would change my choices.

MY THOUGHTS

Did it Work? What Didn’t?
Will I adjust anything next time…..

It’s not rocket science or anything but I liked them more than I thought I would.  I would say the portions that I made were too filling and could be even smaller.  This will definitely be adding this to my list of summer breakfasts.
