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.
