This is one of my favourite go-to breakfasts.

The oats and banana are great for sustained slow release energy, the chia seeds are full of fiber and high in essential fatty acids, and the peanut butter packs a real protein punch. Add the blueberries for an antioxidant boost.

 

Ingredients:

1/3 cup rolled oats

2 tbsp chia seeds

1 cup water or almond milk

1 banana

½ tsp cinnamon

1 tbsp peanut butter

A handful of blueberries (optional)

 

How to:

  1. The night before, mix the oats, chia seeds and water/milk together in a jar or container with a cover. Make sure to mix completely so the chia seeds are not stuck together. Soak covered overnight in the fridge.
  2. The next morning, chop the banana in half. Mash half the banana until it’s a puree. Mix it in with the cinnamon, peanut butter and oat-chia mixture.
  3. With the remaining banana, slice it into bite-sized pieces.
  4. Add the chopped banana on top of the oats. Add the optional blueberries if you like.
