Overnight Creamy Oats

Overnight oats are similar to oatmeal except thicker, fluffier, and served cold. Flavour add-ins are limitless: For example, before they go in the fridge for the night, you can add yogurt, some chia seeds, half of a sliced banana, and a pinch of salt and cinnamon. Nutritionally, this meal can’t be beat. Full of fiber and protein, it provides a strong start to the day! What are chia seeds? These tiny, dark colored seeds can be found in most health food stores and are a nutritional powerhouse of fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Chia is also a complete protein, containing all 9 essential amino acids.
