Quick, easy, and healthy; if you need something to keep you going all day though this winter, nothing beats oatmeal. Rolled oats are among the most nutrient-dense foods you can eat. Perfect for slow-release energy, they are full of antioxidants and fibre and can lower cholesterol – though quick oats don’t contain the same benefits. Great for those avoiding sugar and, if you leave out the fruit and milk, it’s a wonderful natural face cleanser, too.


  • ½ cup rolled oats (not quick oats)
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened almond / coconut milk by Bruce
  • 1 tbs chia seeds
  • 1-2 tbs honey or maple syrup (to taste)
  • 1/3 cup Born Cultured Vanilla Yoghurt (dairy free)

Suggested toppings

  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • Sliced bananas
  • Fresh blueberries
  • Crushed nuts
  • Cinnamon
  • Anything you like, really


  1. In a sealable jar or container, add all the ingredients together and mix well.
  2. Leave in the fridge overnight.
  3. When you’re ready to eat, just add your toppings and enjoy!
