Here’s a spring take on a favorite winter breakfast: Overnight oats! They’re simple, nutritious, and can be very versatile if you let your imagination go. For these recipes we used steel-cut oats (they’re whole and still contain oat bran), as well as old fashion. But use what you have handy! If you’re putting this together in a bowl follow the oat directions below. If you’re using a mason jar allow oats to take up close to half the jar. Nut milk should cover the grains in both recipes but not overflow container.
½ cup of oats
1 cup of nut milk
½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 dash of cinnamon
Place all ingredients into a container and gently mix. Refrigerate overnight. When oats are ready add some fixins and you’re good to go.
1 small chopped banana + 3 Tbs of walnuts + 2 Tbs of raisins + honey to taste
5 chopped strawberries + 1 Tbs of chia seeds
1 Tbs of peanut butter + 1 Tbs of favorite jam + 1 Tbs of flax seeds
