Normally I like to eat oatmeal when it’s warm, but I kept hearing people talk about overnight oats. And then the woman who I sit beside in work started bringing these absolutely adorable mason jars of overnight oats with her. They looked so good, and in a variety of different flavors, I HAD to try them. Overnight oats are generally eaten cold, although you can probably warm them up if you prefer. They’re so delicious that I encourage anyone who is looking for a new snack to enjoy to try it out for themselves. There are a variety of different flavors you can make, ranging from apple raisin cinnamon, raspberry walnut, banana peanut butter, etcetcetccccc. The one in the picture is apple blueberry cinnamon. Pretty much just choose a fruit, a nut, a spice and you’re golden.
- ¼ c chia seeds
- ¼ c oatmeal
- ¼ c yogurt (I use regular but Greek yogurt also works)
- ¼ c vanilla almond milk unsweetened
- Fruit of your choice
- Nuts of your choice
- Combine the chia seeds with the yogurt and mix well, making sure the chia seeds are evenly dispersed. Nothing is weirder than a mouthful of chia seeds and barely any yogurt.
- Slowly mix in the milk until that has also been evenly distributed, and then add the oatmeal. 3. Leave this mixture overnight in the fridge.
- In the morning, top it off with whatever fruit or nut combination you choose. To sweeten this up a bit, I put a bit of honey or agave syrup on top and mix that in as well
