When it comes to a quick and easy post-workout meal oats are a great option. Not only do oats contain a type of soluble fibre that is excellent for heart health as it can lower cholesterol re-absorption. Oats are also a slow releasing energy food meaning they can power you through the remainder of your day without feeling overly tired and fatigued. In addition, it will also keep you from excessively snacking throughout the day!

For basic overnight oats, you'll need:

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt

Optional extras include:

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 medium-sized banana
  • 1 cup raspberries smashed
  • Cacao nibs to top

Method: Simply combine the oats, chia seeds and almond milk (and Greek yoghurt if you are using). Add spices and place mixture in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours. The longer the oats are in the milk mixture, the more their digestibility improves. Simply top with desired toppings when ready to serve.

These overnight oats are: - Gluten Free - Diabetic Friendly - Nut free (avoiding peanut butter) - Vegetarian and Vegan-friendly (avoiding Greek yoghurt)
