  • chopped nuts according to your choice



  • Take a glass Jar with a lid. Now add oats to the glass jar. Can use old fashioned oats or instant oats. Both work well with this recipe.
  • After that add Chia seeds to the oats. Chia seeds become soft and increase in size after absorbing milk.
  • After that add cinnamon powder to the oats and this is optional. This adds extra flavor to the oats.
  • Then add honey to the jar and adjust the honey according to your taste. This adds sweetness to the recipe. Can replace the honey with maple syrup.
  • After honey, add milk to the oats. Then mix all the ingredients well with the spoon and check the taste. Adjust the taste.
  • Finally, close the lid and keep it in the refrigerator for overnight.
  • Next morning, layer the oats with chopped nuts and sliced fruits of your choice and enjoy your healthy and tasty breakfast.
  • Or else simply add nuts and sliced fruits to the oats before refrigerating, for the busy mornings. So can simply grab the jar and go for work.
  • If you want to add banana make sure that add Banana slices before serving or else they become soggy.
  • Can add more milk before having the oats because the chia seeds and oats absorb all the milk. Can heat the oats slightly for the warm breakfast.
  • Avoid heating if the oats have yogurt in it.
