Chocolate Chia Overnight Oats


Overnight oats is another item that has been on my to-do list forever. I am so glad that I finally got to tick it off. I have been trying various combinations with it and most of them have been quite successful. Whenever I have these oats for breakfast, I don’t feel hungry for longer hours and is perfect for rush mornings. The dish for today has cocoa and chia seeds with a splash of honey, dash of nutmeg soaked in milk and topped with bananas. I tried a similar dish with coconut milk instead of regular milk and that was delicious as well.


Protein – Oats

Recipe adapted from here

Serves 1-2
