Breakfast in a Jar–Overnight Oats

IMG_8325IMG_8278IMG_8270 IMG_8271This has become my go to breakfast this summer. So packed with nutrition , delicious not to mention so very filling.  Low in fat and low in sugar. Fiber from the chia seeds and anti-oxidants from the blueberries!  I make 2 of them at nighttime and my breakfast is ready and waiting for me in the morning and then I have one for the next morning. No fuss at all, easy simple ingredients and substitute any fruit you like. I happen to love blueberries but bananas would work as well as peaches, etc. If you don’t like nuts or chia seeds just omit or use any kind of seeds (flax) or nuts you like. Awesome! I used a mason jar because they have such a good lid and you can shake it up and close tight. Take it with you on the go , before the gym, before a hike and before a bike ride! My new favorite breakfast.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup old-fashioned oats

1 Tbsp. slivered almonds

1 Tbsp. Chia Seeds

1 Tsp. Brown Sugar (now this is such a little bit of sugar but if you like a substitute you can do what ever makes you happy) I personally like the brown sugar flavor

dash of cinnamon

app. 1/3 cup of blueberries

3/4 cup of milk ( any milk you like) I use fat-free and 2% depending on what I have in the house.

Directions:

Load it all in the mason jar and shake it up good.

Place in the refrigerator overnight and there you have a delicious healthy breakfast ready for you before you start your
