What’s better than a restful night’s sleep? A delicious breakfast that’s waiting for you when you wake up. Your future self will thank you with these delicious chocolate overnight oats. Oats are a glorious grain and a potent source of fibre, zinc, magnesium, and thiamine (B1). Beta-glucans are a kind of fibre that helps increase feelings of satiety, keeping you fuller for longer. Oats are also smart for the heart, with research showing that daily consumption can help decrease low-density level (LDL) cholesterol by 7%. Top these with antioxidant-rich chia seeds for added (healthy) fats and flavour!

- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Toppings: sliced strawberries, coconut flakes
- In a small bowl, mix all of the ingredients together.
