Author Notes: Overnight oatmeal makes a healthy breakfast packed with protein and soluble fibre. It is perfect in the Summer when it is too hot for porridge.
You need to prepare it the night before so the oats soak properly. This is a no-cook, gluten-free, quick and versatile breakfast option, where you can pile on your favourite fruits. You can also easily take it with you if you have breakfast on-the-go.
Here I have added some chia seeds. You can buy them in the health shop. They boost high levels of protein, calcium and fibre.
To make vanilla sugar just place some caster sugar in a jar with 1 or 2 vanilla pods in. Leave in you pantry and use as needed. (Alternatively you mix some vanilla seeds with some caster sugar).
Peach and blackberry add a real Summer punch. Enjoy! —The Flexitarian
