Kid Friendly Overnight Oats- The Perfect Back to School Breakfast!

I know every parent wants to make sure their kiddo has a nutritious breakfast to start the school day off right but making a quick, healthy breakfast on those early school mornings isn’t always easy.  Overnight Oats are all the rage and everyone seems to have their favourite recipe.  Well, so do I!  It’s a delicate balance with a little one when you’re trying to create a breakfast they will enjoy but is still healthy & nutritious.

Here’s one that works for my little guy!

Ingredients

1 container unsweetened dairy free yoghurt (Almond or Coconut milk are my fav)

1/2 cup unsweetened, fortified, dairy free milk (I use Almond)

1/4 cup chia seeds

1/4 cup hemp hearts

1/4 cup quick cook oats

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 dropper of stevia

 

Method

In a container that has a matching airtight lid combine the yoghurt, milk, vanilla & stevia and stir until combined.  Add each of the Chia seeds, hemp hearts & oats, slowly stir until combined. Seal tightly and refrigerate overnight. Add fresh fruit (if you’d like) serve and enjoy!

A few things to note!

This is a very nutritious breakfast!  If you use the ingredients listed above your little one will be getting:

Calcium

Vitamin D

Fibre

Protein

Omega-3 & 6

Vitamin B12

Amongst many other vitamins & minerals.

Also, this recipe contains NO SUGAR if you use the unsweetened version of both yoghurt & milk, the sweetness comes from the vanilla & stevia.

Lastly, if your little one prefers regular milk & yoghurt this recipe can easily be altered to include them.

I hope your little one enjoys this breakfast as much as mine does! Looking for a during the day snack that’s just as healthy? Check out my recipe for no bake energy bites!
