I love the idea of those overnight oats… You know the ones that you put oats, some kind of milk and some kind of sweetener in a mason jar, mix it up and put it in the fridge. Your breakfast is all ready for you the next morning. Unfortunately, I can not eat too much in the way of oats. I can have a little in an apple crisp, but too many don’t agree with me. 🙁
So then I was trying to come up with different ideas for an instant breakfast and I came up with my Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding. You can eat it for breakfast, dessert or a snack. Chia seeds are great for you containing omega 3’s, protein, fiber, antioxidants as well as calcium.
I will not only eat this as a quick breakfast on the go, but also as an afternoon pick me up snack. Eat it as is, or add your favourite fruit, nuts or seeds.
Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding (Gluten Free/ Dairy Free/ Refined Sugar Free/ Vegan/ Paleo/ Nut Free/ Breakfast)
1 1/2 c. milk alternative (I use my cashew milk)(Use different milk alt. if nut free)
3 Tbsp. chia seeds
2 Tsp. vanilla (I use mine)
4 grams (2 small pkg) stevia to sweeten or 1/4 c. desired sweetener
Mix together all ingredients and put into a mason jar or bowl. Stir a couple of times of a 1 hour period. Then serve with fruit or on it’s own. Great as a breakfast, dessert or snack.
