* Gluten-free if using gluten-free oats and spices

Ingredients:

¼ cup oats

2 ½ tsp chia seeds

2 tbsp coconut or soya yogurt, unsweetened

2 tbsp raisins

½ tsp cinnamon

½ cup almond milk, unsweetened

Directions:

Place all ingredients into a small mason jar and shake until well combined. Alternatively, if you want a more portable option put the ingredients in a plastic tub with clip lids.

Place in fridge and let sit overnight.

Eat cold, or heat if desired. You can pop it in a bowl and microwave it for a couple of minutes. Top with your fresh fruit of choice (optional). Enjoy!

For the yogurt look out for one with ‘no sugars’.

This recipe can easily be doubled up so you have enough for two days.

If you are used to very sweet cereals and trying to wean yourself off then you may want to add a drop of something like date syrup or maple syrup if this isn’t sweet enough for you.

If you’re short of time in the morning mix the milk, water and oats the night before. You also get a creamier consistency this way.
