Overnight oats are the perfect solution to fuel your day properly, without having to get up at the crack of dawn. Just mix up the ingredients before bed and allow them to soak overnight in the refrigerator. This long soaking time eliminates the need of cooking. Here's one no-cook oatmeal recipe, packed with fresh fruits.

- 2 tbsps (tablespoons) honey or sugar- optional
- 2 tbsp water

- 1 In a bowl, mash the banana with the cacao, sweetner if using, and water until it forms a smooth paste.
- 2 Stir in the oats and chia seeds, and then the milk, stirring continuously.
- 3 Place in the fridge overnight either in the bowl or in individual jars.
- 4 To serve it warm, add to a saucepan in the morning and heat over low to medium heat around 5 minutes. You may need to add some extra liquid at this point to thin a little if the porride is to thick.
- 5 Serve the jars topped with berries, coconut cream/yoghurt and chopped nuts.
