Overnight Oats Two Ways

Overnight Oats recipes

My friend Katie is obsessed with Overnight Oats. She raves so much about them, we just had to share how much we love them now too thanks to her! It is so nice to make them at night and have a healthy and delicious breakfast ready in the morning. I love how you can mix and match flavors of fruit, seeds, nuts, and natural sweetners to the oatmeal and have a new recipe each time. You literally toss in all your ingredients and you are good to go! I use my favorite Weck Jars and they work perfect. Katie shared her basic recipe with us and we have found a few favorites to share with you. Enjoy!

Overnight Oats recipes

Mango and Coconut Overnight Oats (non-dairy)

3/4 C old fashioned rolled oats

3/4 C unsweetened almond milk

1 T chia seeds

1 T maple syrup or agave syrup

chopped fresh mango

2 T unsweetened shredded coconut

Mix the almond milk, chia seeds and maple syrup in the Weck Jar. Next add the oatmeal and gently stir all the ingredients. Top with mango and coconut and sprinkle more chia seeds on top and cover with lid. Place in fridge overnight. Eat within a day for best results. If it’s not sweet enough for you, add a bit more syrup.

Berries and Peanut Butter Overnight Oats (non-dairy)

3/4 C old fashioned rolled oats

3/4 C unsweetened almond milk

1 T chia seeds

2 T natural peanut butter

1 1/2 T honey

blueberries, strawberries or raspberries (I think blueberries work best overnight.)

Mix the almond milk, chia seeds and honey in the Weck Jar. Add the peanut or almond butter. Next add the oatmeal and gently stir all the ingredients. Top with berries and cover with lid. Place in fridge overnight. Eat within a day for best results. If it’s not sweet enough for you, add a bit more honey.

You can mix and match the ingredients anyway you would like. I have found that doing mostly equal parts almond milk and oats works best. You will have to adjust the measurements to fit the jar that you use.
