I started meal prepping my breakfast lately and I am loving it! Specially when you have an early morning or a busy day starting the day with a yummy and ready to go breakfast is the greatest thing! I have been working on a grab and go breakfast series and this has been my favourite recipe! An oats and chia pudding breakfast pot.
Hearty and chocolatey pot filled with only wholesome ingredients! I love how sweet and satisfying this pot is. The oats and chia seeds give it the perfect boost for that morning energy we all need and the banana and the cacao makes it the perfect sweet combo.
So if you are like me and are rushing through the morning this is the perfect recipe for you! So let's get to it.
