No Fuss Overnight Oats!

by kellylavieri on March 30, 2015

Overnight oats are quickly becoming one of my favorite go-to breakfast treats. I am not one of those people who can skip breakfast, especially after a workout! 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

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (Bob’s Red Mill for gluten free)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 cup of almond milk or coconut milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional)
  • spices to taste. I like using cinnamon, nutmeg or even pumpkin pie spice; optional toppings fruit, nuts, seeds, raw unsweetened shredded coconut

Directions

Simply mix the oats, chia, nut 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. Top with your favorite fruits, nuts and other goodies.
