Overnight oats are one of my new favourite go-to breakfasts. They are fast and simple to prepare the night before, then you can either just grab and go in the morning, or take a few minutes to add some delicious toppings!
Below is my basic recipe which I add to depending on my mood. You could add in some cacao for a chocolate version or play with the toppings for your own personal creation!
Here I’ve gone for a “PB&J” style bowl with my homemade chia seed jam, almond butter (and almonds), along with a banana, some coconut flakes, and a dusting of bee pollen.
½ cup (125mL) non-dairy milk (I like almond or coconut)
⅓ cup (80mL) oats
¼ cup (60mL) yogurt (I use a full-fat Greek yogurt but would also be great with coconut yogurt!)
1 tbsp (15mL) chia seeds
½ tsp (5mL) vanilla extract
pinch of salt
In a medium sized bowl, or directly in your sealable storage container, mix together all ingredients.
Refrigerate overnight in a tightly sealed container (could be kept up to 2-3 days in the fridge).
Mix with your desired toppings and enjoy!
