Basic Recipe for Overnight Oats

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional – I actually don’t add sweetener)
  • Spices to taste: I like using cinnamon and cardamom.
  • Optional toppings: fruit, nuts, seeds, shredded coconut.

Directions

Simply mix the oats, chia, almond milk, vanilla and spices in a mason jar. Seal it up and give it a good shake. Place it in the refrigerator overnight.

In the morning you can either gently heat it up, let it come to room temperature or eat it cold. Personally, I heat it in a pan on low for about three minutes stirring frequently.

Top with your favorite fruits, nuts and other goodies.

Wishing you Vibrant Wellness,

Kate
