overnight oats with chia and flax – the details…

Let me show you how easy it is to make these healthy overnight oats with a chia and flax breakfast recipe. Get a large bowl and place all the ingredients in the bowl except the fruit. Give it a good stir to mix everything.

Then, gently stir in the fresh or frozen fruit, and transfer the mixture into serving bowls. Cover the bowls with cling wrap and refrigerate overnight. That’s it, nothing complicated, no cooking and only five minutes of your time. 

what about toppings?

This gluten-free pudding…yes, I call it pudding because it is so yummy, doesn’t need a topping. However, if you want to spruce it up, add a dollop of yogurt, nuts, seeds, a drizzle of maple syrup and fresh fruit.

A gluten-free breakfast or a snack has never been simpler to make. The best part, this satisfying breakfast is creamy, filled with fresh fruit and ready for any time of the day.

What do we know about chia seeds?

One of the ingredients in this recipe that excites me is chia seeds. 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. When following a plant-based diet, including complete protein foods is vital for a well-balanced vegan diet. 

In addition, this tiny seed is rich in antioxidants, iron, calcium and fiber. Chia is also low in carbs and calories, making it a good choice for someone following a keto or low-carb diet.
