Time for a throw back! During my early Instgramming days, I was an overnight oats addict. Breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner, desserts.. You name it, It was acceptable to eat. So in honor of being nostalgic about the past (and nice weather), I wanted to share with you one of my favorite overnight oats recipe.
Overnight Oats are the incredible invention by someone who wanted oatmeal, but knew ahead of time they would have time to make them. So in the fridge overnight they went, and in the morning he (or she) as a delicious bowl of soft oats. A treat when I was doing the Raw Vegan Lifestyle, I loved my raw overnight oats. I had ordered special raw unprocessed oats, and made my own almond milk. Throw in some banana and seeds, and it was heaven in a mason jar.
Now that I’m back on the non-raw bandwagon, I can have even more convenience with making overnight oats. They are not only delicious but:
- Fast and Simple
- Highly Customizable
- Can be eaten cold or slightly warmed
- Vegan + Gluten Free
- Oil Free + Sugar Free
I love adding some homemade Chocolate Chia Pudding (Here is the Link) to my stack of oats, fruit, and peanut butter. I find it adds another layer of texture, and of course, WHO DOESN’T LOVE CHOCOLATE?! But like I said, overnight oats are full of customization. Use this a guide for your own creations.
