Overnight oats are quickly becoming one of my favorite go-to breakfast treats. I am not one of those people who can skip breakfast. This Pitts girl wakes up hungry! With my busy schedule overnight oats make an easy, affordable, healthy breakfast that pack a lot of energy boosting nutrients to start my day. I have played around with lots of different flavor combinations. Blueberry and almond butter. Mango and coconut. Dates and apples. Experiment and enjoy!
Basic Recipe for Overnight Oats
- 1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 cup of almond milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional – I actually don’t add sweetener)
- spices to taste. I like using cinnamon and cardamom optional toppings fruit, nuts, seeds, shredded coconut
Simply mix the oats, chia, almond milk, vanilla and spices in a mason jar. Seal it up and give it a good shake. Place it in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning you can either gently heat it up, let it come to room temperature or eat it cold. Personally, I heat it in a pan on low for about 3 minutes stirring frequently. Top with your favorite fruits, nuts and other goodies.
