Overnight Chia Seed Oatmeal Recipe + Tips for a Healthy Breakfast On-the-Go

Hello, friends! Let's talk about breakfast...

The busyness of the morning often makes it difficult for me to sit down & enjoy a balanced, healthy breakfast. I feel the pull to get to the office & usually grab an on-the-go breakfast, such as a boiled egg, but by 11am I am starving! 

Today I want to share with you my new favorite on-the-go breakfast - Overnight Chia Seed Oats - that can be prepared ahead & enjoyed on the road if you so please.

It's simple, really.

 - Grab a wide-mouth mason jar & add 1/2 cup rolled oats. 
- Pour 3/4 cup Bolthouse Farms B Strong™ Protein Shake in Vanilla. I prefer Bolthouse Farms' shake to others because it has 16 grams of protein, is lower in sugar & makes the oatmeal extra creamy!
- Add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract & 1 teaspoon chia seeds.

- Screw on your mason jar lid & shake well to combine! Add to the refrigerator & allow to sit overnight. 

I often make 5-6 jars on Sunday afternoon for the week ahead. It's a simple way to have a delicious breakfast that I can grab & go all week long!

In the morning, I grab whatever ingredients or toppings I have on hand & add to my jar. 

Some ideas include: 
- blueberry crumble: frozen blueberries & granola
- peaches & cream: frozen or fresh peaches with fresh whipped cream
- coconut banana: sliced banana & coconut shreds
- fresh fruit & cinnamon: sliced nectarines & cinnamon are quite delicious!

Once I've added my toppings of choice to my jar, I screw on my mason jar & head out the door - the perfect balanced & delicious breakfast for those extra busy mornings!

Let me know if you whip up this recipe. I'd love to know your favorite toppings! Please share below.

Hi Natalie! Which Vitamix model do you have? I love overnight oats - I like to add 1T cacao powder to mine to make them chocolate :) I'll be looking for Bolthouse to add to mine and for your awesome smoothie recipe!
