­­­Warm Chia Oats

MAKES 1 | PREP 5 | COOK 10-12


  • ⅓ cup organic oats
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 cups liquid of choice (water, almond or coconut milk)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • raw nuts, to serve
  • fresh berries, to serve


  1. Place the oats, chia seeds and 2 cups of liquid in a bowl. Allow the oats to soak overnight.
  2. In the morning, add the mixture to a pot and place on stovetop over medium heat. Bring mixture to boil, then reduce heat and simmer until fully cooked. This should take 10–12 minutes.
  3. Once the oats are cooked, stir in the cinnamon and top with berries or nuts.

Note: Enjoy a serving of protein with your oats to keep your blood sugar levels stable. I like 2 tbsp Greek yoghurt, 2 tbsp LSA mix or 1 serve (25g) of protein powder
