Chia and Hemp Overnight Oats

Healthy eating doesn't get any easier than this!  

Overnight oats make a delicious healthy breakfast. Whole rolled oats are high in fiber and nutrients, low-glycemic, and inexpensive. Look for organic oats as they are not sprayed with pesticides. While oats are naturally gluten-free, check the label to make sure that they have not been exposed to cross-contamination if you are highly allergic.  Chia, hemp and coconut flakes add great texture and even more fiber, nutrients and healthy fats. 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup rolled oats
  • 2 teaspoons hemp seeds
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds
  • 1/2 Cup unsweetened almond milk, or nut milk of your choice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1.2 Cup blueberries, strawberries, raspberries for topping
  • Optional:  1 Tablespoon unsweetened coconut flakes
  • Optional:  Drizzle of honey or maple syrup

Directions:

Mix the oats, chia seeds, hemp seeds in a small bowl or jar; Top with unsweetened coconut flakes if using. Pour nut milk over the oat mixture, completely covering the oats. Cover and refrigerate overnight or up to three days.

In the morning, top with blueberries and/or a small drizzle or raw honey before eating.
