Chocolate & Cherry Overnight Oats
For one, overnight oats are served cold. Chia seeds, a super food high in antioxidants, fiber, and protein, are an essential ingredient. The tiny seeds actually expand into little jelly-like balls, assisting with thickening your oats. The oats are stored overnight in the fridge. During this time, the oats, chia seeds, and add-ins soak in milk. And in the morning, you wake up to a deliciously nutritious, thick, wholesome, and filling breakfast.
