No-cook overnight porridge with chia seeds

    8 hours 5 min

    I love making up a few of these at a time for a quick, on-the-go breakfast. The oats and chia seeds keep you really full. You can use different types of milks, such as almond milk and sweeten to your own taste with maple syrup or agave, if you prefer. You can use almost any fruit - bananas, peaches, or any variety of berries work well. Experiment until you find your favourite version!

    Excellent! I loved this tasty breakfast! I'm making it again tonight. This is so versatile, you can easily use different fruits or milks. I made it with non-fat milk last night, but tonight I will use almond milk. The consistency is perfect. I might use a tiny bit less cinnamon (personal preference), but other than that, the ingredients are spot on. Yum!  -  22 Jun 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This a good idea to start with but needs tweaking. I used half the cinnamon and it was still too much. I did not like the taste of uncooked cinnamon. I also replaced the chia seeds with hemp seeds, as uncooked chia seeds sets off my irritable bowel. Next time, I will use vanilla instead of cinnamon. I do love the idea of having a cold oatmeal to eat in the hot summer, and not having to heat up my house cooking it. Update: I used 1/4 tsp. vanilla instead of the cinnamon and it tasted much better.  -  16 Aug 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Wow, this was good. And so easy. And so customizable. I used my homemade almond milk instead of regular milk, and added fresh fruit the next morning plus a splash more almond milk to loosen up the texture just a bit. In my next jar, I added a tablespoon of unsweetened shredded coconut plus blueberries. In the jar after that, I added a few chopped nuts and fresh peach. There's really no end to what you can do with this excellent base recipe.  -  24 Jun 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
