Method

  1. The night before, put the oats, chia seeds and pumpkin seeds into a bowl or container, pour over the milk, and add the maple syrup, vanilla and a squeeze of lemon juice. Mix well, then cover and pop into the fridge overnight.
  2. In the morning, chop the pears into little chunks, sprinkle over the cinnamon and add the sour cherries. Either layer them up with the oats and seeds in a glass or bowl, or just run out of the door with everything in a little container.

Tips

Chia seeds give a rich creaminess – if you don’t want to add chia, just don’t add as much milk. These amazing little seeds boost the nutritional value of the breakfast tenfold. They look a bit like poppy seeds and come in a variety of colours: black, white and grey. I use the white ones here. Chia seeds were the food of choice of Aztec and Mayan warriors, and a single tablespoon would keep them going for 24 hours. They are high in protein, so they’re perfect for breakfast time. You can also use them in smoothies and baking.
