Overnight Oats with Chia and Flax is a healthy, delicious way to start your day. Morning is a busy time for most of us. Having a power-packed healthy gluten-free breakfast ready when you are, is always welcome. This creamy and delicious overnight oatmeal breakfast is packed with omega-3’s, protein, iron, vitamin C, fiber and calcium.

Let me show you how easy it is to make this healthy overnight oats with chia and flax breakfast. First, you stir everything together except the fruit. Then, gently stir in the fruit, transfer into serving bowls, cover and refrigerate overnight. That’s it, nothing complicated, no cooking and only five minutes of your time.

What do we know about chia seeds?

One of the ingredients in this recipe that excites me is chia. It is not often we use chia in recipes, and we should. This tiny seed is considered to be a superfood. Chia seeds are the richest plant source of omega-3 fatty acids. Also, chia seeds are a complete protein, containing all nine essential amino acids that cannot be made by the body, rich in antioxidants, iron, calcium and fiber. Chia is also low in carbs and calories. In conclusion, chia seeds should be included in a well-balanced diet. Another chia recipe that I love is Vegan Mocha Chia Pudding
