Overnight Oats Method

To make these as overnight oats, add everything to a container and mix well, making sure it’s well combined and the chia seeds are all mixed in. Place in the fridge overnight. In the morning, enjoy cold with your favourite toppings.

Stovetop Method

To make these stovetop, simply add everything to a saucepan, cook until thick and enjoy! I like to use rolled oats for their thick, chewy texture but you can use quick or minute oats to reduce the cooking time.
