I like to bring breakfast in the office that is very simple, mess free and preferably one that can be prepared ahead of time. Overnight oats is one good example to make.
Overnight oats are oats soaked overnight that absorb the liquid you put them in – any kind of liquid you like! There’s no wrong way to prepare it. You can use any kind of milk or yogurt. For best results, let it soak in the fridge for a full 8 hours so they can absorb all the liquid you use. Use one-to-one ratio of raw oats and your choice of milk, yogurt or any other dairy product you like. That’s the base and the toppings are endless. You can use frozen fruits, peanut butter, hazel nuts, almonds, protein powder and honey. You can use almost anything you like.
There’s no need to cook anything but you might want to heat them just a tiny bit in the microwave to take the chill out.
· 1/3 cup rolled oats
· 1/3 cup of milk

1. Place the rolled oats and chia seeds together in a bowl.
2. Whisk together milk and yogurt and pour the mixture on oat-chia mixture.
3. Add a pinch of cinnamon.

In the morning or while in the office you can top it with something crunchy like nuts.
