How to make overnight oats

I make the base with Steel cut oats, Chia Seeds for added fibre and almond milk as an alternative milk for creaminess. I add the option toppings when they are ready to serve each the morning. You can make ahead up to 5 serves to last weekdays or you can download your Free 7 Day Low Carb Meal Plan to help you with other healthy breakfast options.
