Overnight Oats


1 part porridge oats

1 part natural yogurt

1 part milk of your choice

Step 1: Before you go to bed put oats, yogurt, milk and chia seeds (if using) into bowl or container. Mix everything together. Cover and put in fridge. 


Step 2: In the morning take it out of the fridge and add whatever toppings you feel like. I put blueberries, banana and mixed nuts. Enjoy for breakfast.
