The only thing better than overnight oatmeal is an overnight barley breakfast bowl. How do you cook barley? Well, you don't have to when you soak it overnight. So go ahead and elevate your dish with maple syrup and chia seeds for the ultimate brunch menu idea.
Here's a dessert for breakfast you won't feel the least bit guilty about! This decadent-tasting, protein-rich meal will help keep you going all morning. I started with a pretty basic chia pudding: I combined low-fat milk (you can also use an alternative milk, such as unsweetened almond milk) with chia seeds and vanilla extract. I let the mixture plump up in the fridge for about an hour before taking it to the next level.
