Overnight Oats

Recipes for overnight oats have been around the food blogging community for I don't know how long but I keep forgetting to make. I'm not an oats person and I eat it once in a blue moon. I keep a supply of rolled oats for cookies and breads and for when I suddenly want it for breakfast. The idea of uncooked oats didn't appeal to me right away but then I thought why not try a small serving using my homemade kefir milk. I make kefir milk with pasteurized non-homogenized whole milk but if I have access to raw milk, I'd prefer that. I love love love kefir milk and its slightly acidic sweet flavor makes it the perfect liquid for me to soak the oats in. The overnight oats is surprisingly good and I think healthy too. Try the basic recipe and if you like it, you can experiment with other flavorings that suit your taste. I prefer it with just fresh fruits specially mangoes and strawberries.

1 tablespoon chia seeds
