Make this breakfast the day before you start the plan and finish assembling it in the morning or once the oats have set. Layer the oats into mason jars with lids to make this breakfast super easy to take with you on the go.

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 1½ cups quick oats
  • 1½ cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 apple (cored and diced)
  • 1 cup walnuts (chopped)

Preparation

1. Combine oats, milk, chia seeds, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract, and water in a large glass container. Stir well to evenly mix. Cover and store in the fridge overnight.

2. Remove from fridge. Use single-serving size jars (250 mL or 500 mL in size) and place a few spoonfuls of the oat mixture in the bottom of each. Then add a layer of diced apple followed by a layer of chopped walnuts. Repeat until all ingredients are used up.

3. Store in the fridge up to 4 days or until ready to eat. Add an extra splash of milk and/or a drizzle of honey/maple syrup (optional). Enjoy cold or reheat in the microwave for 1 minute before eating.
