Tasty Porridge

Fitting in breakfast can be an issue for a lot of busy people so Atmo has searched for a good way to start your day with good old fashioned porridge and the great news is it doesn't have to be boring. 

If you are training or dieting you will already be thinking about meal preparation and this is no different, overnight soaked oats can be ready to help make the mornings stress free for you and the family. 

Overnight Soaked Oats 

The Recipe 


60g Rolled Oats  (228 Calories) 

100 ml of Alpro Unsweetened Almond Milk or Coconut Milk ( Almond/Coconut milk 52 Calories)

10g Chia Seeds (49 Calories) 

118g Banana (105 Calories) 

20g 90% Dark Chocolate (60 Calories) 

Total Calories = 524 


Wooden spoons

Mash up the banana in either a jar or one of those plastic takeaway containers that you never know what to do with.

Add Rolled Oats and Chia Seeds.

Break the chocolate up in small pieces and add to the mixture. 

Lastly add the chosen milk and stir. 

Seal with the lid and place in the fridge, you are now ready for bed. 

Wake up in the morning and your oats are ready to enjoy, you can either eat them cold on your way to work or if you have a little time you can use the microwave to heat them up usually a minute and a half is fine.



Its a cheap breakfast too!
