Overnight chia oats with figs jam

Prepare the oat flakes and chia pudding the night before. The chia seeds will swell, become softer in texture and give a jelly texture to the pudding.

Servings 2 jars

Ingredients
  

  • 4 tblspoon figs jam I prefer making this myself without adding extra sugars
  • 2 tblspoon chia seeds
  • 2 tblspoon oats
  • 200 ml almond milk
  • 1 vanilla stick
  • 1 figs fresh
  • 1 tblspoon raw almonds
  • 2 mint leaves

Instructions
 

  • I made the jam before. On the website is a recipe of fig jam with ginger and clove. I prefer to use homemade jam because I do not add extra sugars and like to have pieces of fruit. Be aware that jam with less sugar can not be kept for a long time. It does not have to be a fig jam, you can choose any other one … according to your taste and choice.
  • Cut the vanilla stick lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Mix the almond milk, oat flakes, chia seeds and vanilla seeds. Put this mixture in the fridge during the night.
  • In the morning you add an extra spoon of almond milk and stir well until it is smooth again. (maybe you need to add some extra milk.) Chop the almond nuts.
  • Divide between two jars, alternating both the oat pudding and the jam. Sprinkle the finely chopped nuts on top. Finish with a little mint leave.

Notes

OAT FLAKES:
  • Contain dietary fiber that lower cholesterol levels.
  • Oat starch digests slowly. Oat gradually releases the glucose to the blood (low glycaemic index)
  • Longer saturated feeling that can counteract the “extra – in between – snacks”.
  • Rich in carbohydrates, fiber, protein and fat (more than other cereals)
  • Promotes good intestinal bacteria.
CHIA SEEDS:
  • Chia seed comes from the flowers of a Mexican mint plant Chia.
  • Contains many proteins, antioxidants, minerals and the healthy fats omega-3 acids.
  • Before use, briefly crush in the mortar.
  • Ensures a jelly binding in pudding.
