This (semi!) healthy recipe for coffee overnight oats combines healthy, quick breakfast with a caffeine hit that’s sure to help you through your manic mornings whether it’s getting the children to school or powering through that first meeting of the day.
This recipe is easily adaptable for all health requirements and tastebuds, here’s how we made it…
I N G R E D I E N T S – Serves 2
80g of rolled oats (we used gluten free)
1 x tablespoon of chia seeds
1 x teaspoon of cinnamon powder (pumpkin spice is nice in the autumn)
1 x cup of coffee (we used Safi coffee)
8 x tablespoons of full-fat Greek yoghurt (or substitute for coconut, soya etc)
Mini chocolate chips
M E T H O D
1. Pour the oats into a glass bowl, then add the chia seeds, cinnamon and coffee. This recipe is not very sweet so if you’ve got a sweet tooth (like us!) feel free to squeeze in a little honey or maple syrup or a handful of chocolate chips. Mix well to combine.
2. Spoon into glasses, mason jars or whatever else takes your fancy.
3. Let sit in the fridge overnight.
4. When ready to eat, spoon over the yogurt and decorate with cinnamon, chocolate chips and a few coffee beans if you’re looking for that extra coffee hit.
