I am always looking for ways to save time, recently I have began using overnight oatmeal dishes for a breakfast staple.  You can’t get any easier, simply combine a few power foods in a glass jar, and the next morning breakfast is served.  I have swapped the oatmeal in this recipe for chia seeds for a series of reasons, the obvious is to make a grain free dish, but also to reap the benefits of the chia seeds: a quality protein, fat and fibre.

Here is what you will need:

3 tbsp chia seeds, 1 cup almond milk, 1 tsp raisins, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1/2 banana and 1 tsp cinnamon.


Here is what to do

Mash the banana and place in a glass jar, place all the other ingredients in the jar and stir. Place in the refrigerator overnight and serve the next morning.  For added crunch, just before serving add one tsp of raw nuts and/or seeds.
