Overnight Oats & Chia Seed Pudding

Overnight oats are a great option when you need a handy breakfast to go but you still want to eat according to the Live Dirty, Eat Clean Lifestyle. Add omega-rich chia seeds into the mix, and you have an easy-to-make, portable breakfast. Combine the ingredients in a jar at night, then in the morning top with your favorite fruits and nutritional boosts. Eat right out of the jar or heat the mixture for a quick and warm meal.



½ cup gluten-free rolled oats
1 tablespoon chia seeds
½ cup DIY Nut Milk
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract (omit if nut milk is flavored)
1 teaspoon Manuka honey

TOPPINGS: fresh fruit (sliced bananas, apples, pears, chopped peaches, or fresh berries), nuts, shredded coconut, seeds


PLACE THE OATS, chia seeds, nut milk, cinnamon, vanilla, and maple syrup in a mason jar. Mix well. Place in refrigerator overnight. In the morning, stir the mixture and add any desired toppings.

VARIATION: For a thicker and more filling meal, mash together 1 tablespoon almond butter and half a banana. Place in the mason jar with the oat mixture to soak overnight.
