Okay, so many people have asked about my overnight oats and how to prepare them. It’s super easy, and great for workdays because
you just whip it up the night before and then throw it in your lunch pail in the morning for your workday. Here is the basic recipe:
1/2C oatmeal flakes (I use gluten-free)
1C milk substitute (almond, flax, hemp, coconut, soy milk – whichever you prefer)
1TB – vanilla protein powder (optional – I use a vegan based)
berries (whatever you like – strawberries, blueberries etc. – best to use in season fruit)
1tsp – chia seeds (you can also add any kind of seeds such as flax, hemp etc.)
Mix all of your ingredients together in a sealed container (I like to use mason jars) and put in the refrigerator overnight.
That’s it…simple, easy! You can be as creative as you like with your fruit and seeds. I like to use fruit that is in season so during summertime I use a lot of berries, whereas during the winter you can use apples, pears, oranges, tangerines etc. Also, the vanilla protein powder gives it a hint of sweetness. If you do not want to use protein powder then you may want to add a pinch of agave or stevia, or even pure maple syrup.
