Chai Spiced Overnight Oats with Pear

Can you believe it? another breakfast recipe.  I’ve been all about the breakfast for the last couple of months going on a year and now that I have baby I’m always on the search for really yummy breakfast ideas that seems a little bit fancier than toast with crudely spread peanut butter, I want something that takes the same amount of effort.  That’s why overnight anything has just become my lifesaver, it doesn’t beat sourdough pancakes, but its pretty close!

Overnight oats is just the perfect breakfast for people in a constant rush.  You just dump everything in your jar. shake everything up, cover and leave in the fridge overnight and wait for the delicious magic to happen!  You can even eat it directly out of the jar.  I like placing mine in a bowl and sprinkling all the little extras in there to really make it seem like I created the fanciest breakfast you’ve ever seen.

This chai spiced inspired overnight oats is just amazing, filled with warming spices that make for a delicious breakfast that will give you all the flavour without any of the real effort.  Topped with chopped pear that beautifully compliments all the spices and just a sprinkle of coconut makes this a wonderful flavour explosion.
