Chia Overnight Oats with Chocolate and Strawberry for an easy, plant based and gluten free breakfast
For the past two weeks straight I have been on a overnight oats kick for breakfast. Overnight oats are so creamy, delicious and require minimum effort to make when I’m busy. They are perfect for summer too, when I don’t always feel like something warm in the morning.
I tried adding chia seeds to my overnights and it instantly became my favourite way to enjoy them. They not only make the texture perfect, but they also add some plant based protein too.
The flavor combo and consistency so good and the healthy fats and nutrients in this bowl left me full and satisfied in the best way possible.
For toppings I went for the classic combination of strawberries and chocolate. I added some coconut flakes for added crunch too. This combination was amazing, these overnight oats tasted just like cake. For the chocolate sauce I used Sweet Freedom Choc Shot which is made from 100% fruit syrup, cocoa and carob.
