Overnight Cold Oat Porridge

Soaking rolled oats the night before means that this breakfast only takes a minute to pull together in the morning. Cold overnight oat porridge is a delicious summery alternative to hot porridge. It tastes a little like rice pudding. You can make a bigger batch to last a few days if you like.

Oat porridge is so good for you; it is a filling source of soluble fibre known as beta-glucan which can help to maintain healthy cholesterol levels.

Makes 1 breakfast

50 g jumbo porridge oats

1 tbsp chia seeds

125 ml your choice of milk, almond works well

1 tbsp Greek yoghurt

  1. Tip the oats and chia seeds into a bowl or sealable jar, and give them a quick stir. Pour in the milk and yoghurt and stir again. Cover and put in the fridge overnight.
  2. In the morning, add whatever topping you like, and eat cold as it is. Alternatively for a hot breakfast, tip the mixture into a saucepan and heat through for 1 minute until hot. You might need to add a little water to loosen.
