The most convenient breakfast/snack all times has to be overnight oats and chia puddings! Since they’re prepared in advance you know you will have a yummy, nutritious and healthy breakfast or afternoon snack to eat next day. Just pull it out from the fridge, eat it right away at home, on the go or bring it with you and have as a late breakfast or afternoon snack. This overnight oats and chia pudding is cinnamon flavored with an option to include sunflower and buckwheat seeds to make it more crunch and filling, topped with ginger and honey fried pears and chopped hazelnuts. The fried pears taste better freshly fried, but can also be eaten cold or reheated.
A few tips:
- You can use any milk of your liking, I used almond milk.
- You could use other ratios of chia/oats but that will also affect the amount of milk needed. Just add more if the pudding looks too dry.
- Buckwheat and sunflower seeds are optional, but makes it extra delicious. You can skip them or use any seeds you like or have at home.
- I added some dried apples and pears to the pudding, just to have some extra sweetness and texture in the pudding. You can however omit them, use grated pears or apple or use some other dried fruits.
- The amount of cinnamon can be adjusted according to taste.
- You can serve the pudding with warm or cold fried pears. Even though I prefer warm ones.
- This chia oat pudding is good to store in the fridge for up to five days.
