Overnight Chia seed and Oats Breakfast Pudding

This is definitely the easiest and healthiest breakfast and a favourite with my family. By now whoever has read my recipes must be aware that I always like the fast forward kinds where the lazy me is not tortured by being in the kitchen for too long :)

I have really started to enjoy chia seeds filled with goodness!! They are an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids, which help to raise HDL(the "good" cholesterol that protects against heart attack and stroke) cholesterol. Chia seeds also are rich in antioxidants, and they provide fibre, iron and calcium.
Indeed they look a little strange specially when they absorb all the liquid and bloat up and enlarge (just like the basil seeds) and sure look funny! :)

15gm chia seeds
4 tbsp. rolled oats
200ml milk of your choice
2 tbsp. rose syrup
2 tbsp. honey
Fresh strawberries

The night before place in different jars the chia seeds in about 100 ml of milk along with 1tbsp and oats in the remaining milk with another 1tbsp of honey. Mix well to combine. Leave it in the refrigerator (it's pretty cold here in Sydney so I just left it outside) overnight to thicken.

In the morning I  just layered it up starting with the oats at the bottom and alternating it with chia seeds in a jar or glass. Since my little one is very fond of rose syrup I decided to add two tbsp. into the chia seed layer for her. Added some freshly sliced strawberries and it was ready in no time and the best part is with no effort!!
This delicious breakfast really saves me a lot of time as my busy mornings are always rush rush...

Hope you will enjoy this breakfast as much as I do. Thanks for dropping by and have a great day ahead. Cheers!!
