Overnight Oats

Overnight Oats

The perfect breakfast for those busy mornings. Prep the night before and grab it as you run out the door!

In a small mason jar (2 cup/16oz) place 1/2 cup dry rolled oats and 1/2 cup quick cook oats. Add cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla, and some dried unsweetened fruit (raisins – not Craisins, golden raisins, goji berries, cherries. Pour in enough unsweetened plant-based milk (soy, almond, hemp) to cover the oats plus a little more. Mix with a spoon, screw on the lid, and place in the fridge. Pack some berries or other fresh fruit along with some walnuts, pumpkin seeds, ground flax seeds, chia seeds, or sunflower seeds to mix in. Grab your jar and fruit as you head out the door (don’t forget a spoon). Eat cold or at room temp. Enjoy!

    I definitely need to try this for the busy week days!

  2. I only have dry rolled oats; could I just use that in the mean time? Going to give this one a try.

  3. Had this for breakfast this morning and it was good! Right out of the fridge; breakfast was ready for me. I put in chopped nuts that I had on hand–chopped almonds and pecans, sprinkled in flax and chia, put in golden raisins—that took the edge off, too.
