So I work early in the morning. Very early at a bakery. I wake up and I normally don’t eat till after my work is done. When I calculated how long I went without food for I was surprised. I went 14.5 to 15 hours before eating. So to remedy this I tried making overnight oats.
Now this was the first time making this and I used what had on hand to make something I could eat in the morning.
I used oats, chia seeds, nuts, raisins, honey, and whole milk. I usually like soy or almond milk. So I used what I had.
I am happy to say it was delicious. I can’t wait to make and try out other variations.
It was quick, and easy. I mean it took me 5 minutes to mix together and put nuts in a baggie. Then it sits in the fridge overnight.That is a great plus. It tastes great and it was quick and easy. On not to mention healthy.
Overnight Oatmeal w/ Raisins, Chia, and Nuts
- 1/2 cup or 4 tbs old fashioned oats
- 1/8 cup or 2 tbs of chia seeds
- 3/4 cup of milk (use dairy, or my favorite Soy or Almond Milk)

- 1 tsp of honey
- 1 tsp vanilla
- pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp of Nut-rition mix
- Mix together oats, chia, milk, raisins, honey, vanilla, and salt. Mix well.
- Let it sit overnight.
- Take with you to work, and add toppings before eating.

I am going to try to see if I can get my husband to eat it. If he likes it that is great. It is healthy and full of fiber. Score one for the wife and healthy foods.
This is full of fiber, only has natural sugars, and gluten free. Depending on what you put into it. This can be dairy free, nut free, and fat free.
Try it out, and let me know what you think. Thanks for reading my blog. Go out and eat healthy. =) If you get a chance to try this let me know if you liked it.
