How to make OVERNIGHT OATS for Breakfast
Simplify your busy mornings with this easy recipe that can last up to a week in the fridge.
Ingredients and Instructions
This oat recipe soaks overnight in liquid (in this case, milk or coconut milk), and they absorb the liquid, becoming soft and creamy. If you ask me, there is nothing better than eating nutritious oats every morning. They are rich in fiber, loaded with vitamin B, and they keep the heart healthy. Start your day with this tasty (and filling) meal that’s good for your gut, heart, and brain. Read on for the step-by-step instructions.
1/3 to 1/2 cup dairy milk, (Vegan) almond, cashew or coconut milk 1/3 to 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (Vegan) 2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
1/3 to 1/2 cup yogurt, optional 1 teaspoon of chia seeds, optional but highly recommended 1/2 bananas, mashed (optional)
Serving suggestions: fruit (fresh or dried), nuts, nut butter, seeds, protein powder, granola, coconut, spices, citrus zest, and vanilla extract
1) Add the desired amounts of milk, oats, yogurt, chia seeds and banana to a jar or container and give them a good stir. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 5 hours.
2) In the morning, add additional liquid if you’d like. Once you achieve the desired consistency, top with fruit, nuts, nut butter, seeds, protein powder, granola, coconut, spices, zest or vanilla extract.
The mixture will keep for up to 2 days.
- If you don’t add the banana, up to 4 days.
However, once you are experienced, you’ll have no problem whipping up another batch
midweek if needed!
