Tropical, sweet, satisfying, nourishing, these tropical chia seed oats make the best, fruity breakfast!



  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1 cup diced fresh pineapple (or canned pineapple chunks)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 sliced banana
  • 12 tbsp of toasted coconut


  1. Add the oats, pineapple, chia seeds, almond milk and vanilla to a container and stir or shake vigorously to combine.
  2. Place in the fridge overnight or at least for a few hours.
  3. When you’re ready to eat, top with the toasted coconut and sliced banana.


To make toasted coconut, spread unsweetened shredded coconut or coconut flakes on a baking sheet and toast at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes until golden brown. Keep an eye on them, once they brown they’ll burn quickly!

If you’d like to make this higher in protein for a more balanced meal, mix in 1/2-1 scoop of your favourite vegan vanilla protein powder.
