I’m not a huge fan of oatmeal, in all honesty, but these overnight oats are a great, easy breakfast idea when you’re trying to stick to a whole food plant based way of living.
1 cup almond milk
2/3 cup gluten free rolled oats (not quick)
2 teaspoons chia seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 serving Stevia (optional)
2 tablespoons organic peanut butter powder (optional)
Before bed: Mix everything together in a mason jar and shake. Place in the refrigerator.
Morning: Mix and eat if you like it cold or place mixture into a pot and heat for 2-3 minutes.
This basic recipe can be mixed with so many different items to make it unique and different each day. You can also take out the oats and just do 1/3 cup of chia seeds instead. Sometimes I add in cacao powder to make it a chocolate peanut butter breakfast. Or mix in some berries.
AND…there’s no need to keep this just for breakfast. You can bust it out anytime of day. I’d just give it a few hours to sit and soak together.
Tip: I bought wide mouthed pint mason jars to make this in because the opening at the top is bigger and easier to get stuff in…and eat right out of the jar (and bonus…I use Ball jars because I went to Ball State University…the college the Ball family started).
