Overnight Oats

Overnight Oats

Overnight oats is something I have been wanting to try for a while now. I have come across so many different recipes for them, while looking for new breakfast ideas. Well, I finally tried it and it’s good! I didn’t know what to expect, because in the instructions sound like it would just be soggy, nasty oatmeal. This recipe is nothing like that at all. It’s more like a breakfast desert! The combination of the soaked oats, peanut butter and chocolate chips are delicious. Since I love peanut butter, I personally am going to start adding more to mine.

My son on the other hand did not like this at all! He already doesn’t like oatmeal, but I thought maybe since it taste like a desert dish, he would like it. I was very wrong… He doesn’t seem to like the texture of oats, except for the maple granola that I make. I’m still looking for an oatmeal recipe he would like. If anyone has a suggestion, it would be greatly appreciated! For those who do like oatmeal, this is a great recipe to try.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Old fashion rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup Almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp. Pure maple syrup (or agave nectar)
  • 1 Ripe banana
  • 2 Tbsp. Peanut butter
  • 3/4 Tbsp. Chia seeds
  • Optional toppings: Chocolate chips, walnut or pecans, banana slices, chia seeds

Instructions:

  1. In a mason jar or small bowl, combine almond milk, chia seeds, peanut butter, and maple syrup and stir with a spoon. Do not completely blend the peanut butter with the almond milk. This leaves swirls of peanut butter along the sides of the mason jar or bowl.
  2. Mix in the oats and stir a few more times. Press down with a spoon to ensure all oats have been moistened and are immersed in almond milk.
  3. Cover with a lid or plastic wrap and set in the refrigerator overnight for at least 6 hours.
  4. In the morning, remove lid or cover and garnish with desired toppings.
  5. Enjoy!

*Overnight oats will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.  It is best within the first 12-24 hours.
