Meal Prepping Overnight Oats

on March 16, 2017

I’m getting much better at being organised and ensuring that I’ve done enough meal prep so I don’t end up eating unhealthy. One of the areas that I’ve improved lots in is breakfast. I used to often end up buying a pastry or muffin on my way to work but now that’s very much swapped up being an occasional treat.

I actually don’t miss it as I’ve found my groove in overnight oats. I’ve a collection of different tubs to take it to work in and prepping two or three days work takes no time at all.

My current favourite and what I’m having four times a week is mango chia overnight oats. The ‘recipe’ to make 4 portions is as follows,

For each tub you’ll need

50g porridge oats

15g chia seeds

125ml coconut or almond milk

Plus 1 can mango with juice to use for all 4.
Mix the chia seeds and oats roughly together, add the milk and juice from the tinned mango and stir.

Empty the mango into a bowl and chop into bits size pieces. Add 1/4 into each tub. Add a lid and leave in the fridge for at least 8 hours and for up to 4 days.

In the morning give it a quick stir before enjoying. It really is that simple.

I wandered about the cost and I worked it out as 52p per serving and £7.44 for all the ingredients. Some of them like chia seeds are expensive but you only need 15g per portion so they’ll last ages and usually have a long expiration date.

I’m looking forward to spring arriving and more options for fruit being available. I love berry overnight oats too but they are so expensive during winter I’ve pretty much stopped.
