Before you ask, this lovely mason jar came from Wilko and cost £1.50. I’m no hipster, but I saw it and thought it was pretty, not because all the foodies are using them! I’ve read about overnight oats and thought ‘what’s that about?’ since I have porridge almost every day for breakfast. 

Simply, this is 3/4 cup of oats, 1 small handful of chia seeds, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 drop vanilla essence and 1 cup milk. Mixed and left in the fridge overnight.

I have to say, I just couldn’t deal with it cold. It was super tasty, but it went straight in the microwave! Something about this needed to be warm – maybe it’s the Christmassy flavours, and the fact it’s the 22nd December.
