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
- 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.
- 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.
