Layered Overnight Oats with Chia Pudding (VE, GF, DF)

Layered Overnight Oats with Chia Pudding (VE, GF, DF)

One of the breakfasts that never fails me is overnight oats. It’s so versatile, easy to make and easy to take on the road. I’m usually not hungry until a couple of hours after I wake up, so it works out perfectly as I can eat it later on in the morning when I’m at work. This recipe is a slightly fancier version (they don’t always look like this!) but you can make it with anything really! I like to add some chia seeds for extra omega 3, some spirulina for healthy protein and B-vitamins, and acai powder for antioxidants, making it the perfect boost to start your day.

Ingredients:

Bottom layer:

  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp coconut milk
  • a splash of maple syrup or coconut nectar
  • 1 tsp spirulina powder (I like this one for it’s great quality)

Middle layer:

  • 3 tbsp Oats
  • 1-2 tbsp vanilla coconut yoghurt (I used this one)
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk
  • a splash of maple syrup or coconut nectar

Top layer:

  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp coconut milk
  • a splash of maple syrup or coconut nectar
  • 1 tsp acai powder (I like this one for it’s great quality)

 

Toppings (optional):
  • raspberries
  • coconut flakes
  • blueberries
  • dark chocolate
  • peanut butter (I love this one)
  • banana slices

 

Method:

Make both chia pudding layers by mixing the chia seeds, coconut milk and coconut nectar in two separate little bowls, adding spirulina powder to one of the mixes, and acai powder to the other.

Meanwhile mix all the ingredients for the middle oat layer.

Pour the spirulina chia pudding into a glass jar. Carefully spoon the oat mixture on top (I also added some slices of banana at this point), then spoon on the acai chia pudding on top of the oats. close the jar and leave in the fridge overnight. Top with any of the desired toppings. It goes really well with peanut butter and raspberries 🙂

You can of course also mix the chia and acai or spirulina powder with the oats instead of layering.

Enjoy!
