Yield: 2 Servings

We worked with our nutritionists to devise this hearty breakfast that combines oats, apples, nuts, and matcha — four key foods that “help to lower cholesterol levels and slash the risk of heart disease.”


For the Oats

  • 1 cup (80g) rolled oats
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1-1/2 cups (375ml) almond milk (or hazelnut, rice, or oat milk)
  • 1 tsp matcha powder
  • 2 pinches of ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp runny honey

For the Topping

  • 1 apple, peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1 tsp pumpkin seeds
  • Handful of mixed nuts


If you have time make this in advance — ideally the night before you wish to eat it.

  1. Place the oats and chia seeds in a bowl or container.
  2. In a separate bowl or jar, add 1 tbsp of the almond milk to the matcha powder and whisk to make a smooth paste. Top with the rest of the milk and mix well.
  3. Pour the matcha milk mixture over the oats, then stir in the cinnamon and honey. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  4. When ready to eat, transfer the oats to two bowls and top with the chopped apple, pumpkin seeds, and nuts.
