A 5-minute chia oats recipe for busy weekday mornings

Mornings are chaotic in most households. Add children to the mix and it can double the chaos.

It can be a struggle to get yourself (not to mention the kiddos) dressed, fed and out the door with your sanity (and theirs) intact. That’s why this breakfast is going to be your new best friend.

Enter: no-cook chia oats.

Let your refrigerator do all the work in this protein-packed, portable and healthy breakfast. Simply mix the ingredients in a mason jar, pop it in the fridge the night before, and sleep like a baby knowing a healthy breakfast will be ready in the morning. All your family has to do is grab a spoon, top it off with their favorite fruits and enjoy!

Chia seeds are a great plant-based source of protein and fiber. Two tablespoons of chia seeds has roughly 10 grams of fiber and almost 5 grams of protein. That dynamic duo is great for keeping blood sugar levels stable and providing sustained energy — a fantastic way to start your morning on the right foot.

To make this recipe vegan, just use a plant-based milk and agave instead of honey.
