No-cook chia seed oatmeal

I’m not a huge breakfast person, and so by the time I get hungry it’s usually mid-morning and I’m in the middle of something at work. Normally I just keep working, get really cranky and stay cranky until I get lunch. Not the most healthy, or friendly, approach. I tested out this recipe as something I can make the night before, keep in the fridge at work and just grab when I’m hungry. It was incredible easy to make and best of all, the end result was delicious and kept me bad-mood free until well into the afternoon.

No-cook chia seed oatmeal


2 c rolled oats (NOT instant)
1 1/2 c greek yogurt
1 c milk (I used almond milk)
5 T chia seeds
1/2 pint Mason jars

Flavorings: Cranberries and lemon zest, pecans and vanilla, banana/walnut/honey, blueberry maple.

Mix oats, yogurt, milk and chia seeds together. Distribute into jars and add a 2 T of a sweetener, like maple syrup, vanilla or honey, per jar. Leave as is, or add a fruit and nuts like the combinations above. Refrigerate overnight.

Enjoy while multitasking.
