Overnight chia oats with chocolate & orange

overnight chia oats

This is truly one of the most delicious breakfasts I have eaten is a long time! I had it for the first time the other morning and I was just in breakfast heaven! The combination of chocolate and orange is one of those perfect matches. It’s great any time of year but seems especially fitting as christmas is fast approaching! For me the wonderful thing about this breakfast is how comforting it is at the same time as being awakening. It’s really creamy and filling and the addition of the orange brings a quality of freshness and zest to a very comforting dish. The juiciness of the orange goes so well with the creaminess and the chocolate. I hope you love it as much as I do!
