Overnight chia seeds

overnight chia seeds

Overnight porridge oats have been a popular breakfast in recent years, but sadly oats are tricky for many women to tolerate in the morning.

However, swapping the oats with chia seeds can make for a much better tolerated alternative which is quick and easy to prepare and makes for a sweet and filling alternative.

Nutrient dense chia seeds are low carb, packed with goodness! They are high in fibre, protein, natural fats and antioxidants, making them a great choice for a gestational diabetes breakfast! They will also help your digestive system 😉

Chia seeds soak up liquids, swell and become gelatinous much like tapioca and so the texture is not to everyone's liking.

Recipe Notes

This recipe can be played around with to suit your own tastes. Adding vanilla seeds, or a small amount of good quality vanilla extract works well, as does adding coconut flakes or nuts. Adding fruit or chocolate increases the carb amount and so if doing this, it will cause higher blood sugar levels.
