Overnight Chia Oats (GF, DF)

It’s finally April – already! Have you fooled anyone? I used to do that when I was younger all the time, but I’m lacking the creativity to fool anyone nowadays – or maybe I’m just too nice for it! My day has been quite calm after yesterday’s surgery on my right wrist. It sucks – I am right handed and suddenly I feel so handicapped, well, I am actually! I’m wearing a huge blue cast for the next 2 weeks and then my physiotherapy starts. I saw my surgeon/doc today, who wanted to do a first check after yesterday but everything seemed fine (other than the normal swelling). Other than that I really haven’t done much. I finished an assignment for uni, but it took forever when only being able to write with one hand. I am hoping for a little less pain in the upcoming days so that I can at least type normal again! However, here’s to my actual post: Overnight Chia Oats! I am a huge breakfast lover as you all have noticed by now; a foodie in general. Since everything in my kitchen is made gluten free (GF) and dairy-free (DF), I have amended the normal overnight oats for me to be able to eat them. I love it so, so much – and have it regularly for breakfast at the moment! Especially with fresh fruit, such as strawberries and raspberries – there is nothing better. It is super quick to do and since it is done the night before, you have breakfast ready within seconds upon waking up.

Here is what you need:

– ½ cup buckwheat flakes (or any other GF oats)
– ¾ cup almond milk (or any other DF milk)
– 1 tbs chia seeds
– fresh fruit (or any other topping of choice)

Here is how you do it:

– Mix the buckwheat flakes and chia seeds in a mason jar (or similar glass)
– add the milk and mix once more

– add the fruit of your choice (or add them in the morning) and place the jar into the fridge
(make sure the oats get an overnights sleep of at least 6 hours!)
– enjoy upon awakening :-) 

I find this quick and easy fix breakfast amazing for the summer, as I prefer warm oats or porridge in winter. With more fruit being available in summer (at least here in Zurich), many more variations of this delicious breakfast will be made for sure. Since I’m always on the lookout for more inspiration, do tag your version of it with #OvernightChiaOats on Instagram and I’ll make sure to check it out! Till then, I wish you a great continuing week. xo
