Here’s a family-friendly breakfast must-have that incorporates seasonal blood oranges – which are rich in vitamin C to keep your immune system fighting fit, and whole grain-rich oats that are a source of fibre to keep your digestive system on track right from the start of your day.
Ingredients (serves 4)
- 8 blood oranges, peeled, deseeded, quartered
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 ½ cups UNCLE TOBYS Traditional Rolled Oats
- 2 cups skim milk
- 1 tsp water
- 4 tbsp cinnamon
- 2 tbsp natural Greek yoghurt, to serve
- 2 tbsp almonds roughly chopped, to serve
- 2 tbsp blood orange zest, to serve
- To make your chia jam, place the blood orange pieces in a medium-sized pot on medium heat and stir occasionally. Use a fork to roughly mash them. Once the oranges break down, add the chia seeds and maple syrup, and stir until well combined. Remove from the heat. Place chia jam into a container and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to allow the chia to set.
- Meanwhile, place the oats in medium-sized pot with milk, water and cinnamon and cook over medium heat. Bring the oat mixture to boil, then allow to simmer on low-medium heat for 5-8 minutes until oats are soft and creamy, stirring continuously. Add more water or milk to achieve your desired consistency.
- Once oats are cooked, divide evenly into bowls, top with one tablespoon of chia jam, a dollop of natural Greek yoghurt and sprinkle with crushed almonds, blood orange zest and a drizzle of maple syrup or honey.
Remaining chia jam can be stored in fridge for up to 5 days.
