Overnight oats with chocolate chia base

Overnight oats 2

Working the early shift at work often feels like it can limit the options for breakfast. Not having time to make something before rushing out the door is a pitfall for many!
So this is a recipe I've put together that can be made the night before and grabbed from the fridge in the morning, you can also make a double portion to cover the next day too.

Time: 10 Mins Serves: 1


  • To make the chia seed base, place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well
  • Add enough just boiled water to cover the seeds and stir well again
  • Leave to stand whilst you make the oats (the longer you can allow the better, I sometimes leave them separate until the morning)
  • To make the oats, place all of the ingredients in the blender apart from the oats
  • Blast until smooth
  • Place in a bowl and stir in the oats
  • Layer the oat mixture over chocolate chia base and keep in the fridge overnight .


For the chia seed base:

  • 15g Chia seeds
  • 2 tsp Raw cacao
  • 2 Dried dates (chopped up into small pieces)
  • 1 tsp Maple syrup
  • Boiling water

For the oats

  • 30g Oats
  • 1/2 Cup frozen berries
  • 1 Scoop of vanilla or plain protein powder
