Overnight Chia Seed Oatmeal. Overnight oats is the perfect breakfast if you want a wholesome, homemade meal but you don’t want to add anything extra to your morning routine. Rolled oats, milk and a few other tasty ingredients are combined in a container and left to chill overnight in the refrigerator. The oats become soft and creamy by morning, just like slow-cooked oatmeal. Chia seeds, popular for their omega-3s and other health benefits, become pleasantly soft as well and add a light nutty flavor. A little maple syrup, cinnamon and vanilla make this breakfast dish just sweet enough. We added dried cherries, toasted almonds and banana to ours for some extra natural sweetness and lots of texture. Swap these out for your own favorite toppings.
