Overnight Oats Recipe

Overnight Oats Recipe

Course Breakfast
Cuisine American

Equipment

  • Mason jar or small bowl with a lid

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 Cup Unsweetened plain almond milk (or sub other dairy-free milks, such as coconut, soy, or hemp!)
  • 3/4 Tbsp Chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp Natural salted peanut butter or almond butter
  • 1 Tbsp Maple syrup
  • 1/2 Cup Gluten-free rolled oats
  • Sliced banana, strawberries, or raspberries (optional)
  • Flaxseed meal or additional chia seeds (optional)
  • Granola (optional)

Instructions
 

  • To a mason jar or small bowl with a lid, add almond milk, chia seeds, peanut butter, and maple syrup (or other sweetener) and stir with a spoon to combine. The peanut butter doesn't need to be completely mixed with the almond milk (doing so leaves swirls of peanut butter to enjoy the next day).
  • Add oats and stir a few more times. Then press down with a spoon to ensure all oats have been moistened and are immersed in almond milk.
  • Cover securely with a lid or seal and set in the refrigerator overnight (or for at least 6 hours) to set/soak.
  • The next day, open and enjoy as is or garnish with desired toppings (see options above). See more flavor/topping suggestions in the blog post above!

Notes

OPTIONAL: You can also heat your oats in the microwave for 45-60 seconds (just ensure there's enough room at the top of your jar to allow for expansion and prevent overflow), or transfer oats to a saucepan and heat over medium heat until warmed through. Add more liquid as needed if oats get too thick/dry.
Overnight oats will keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, though best within the first 12-24 hours in our experience. Not freezer friendly.
