Overnight oats my favorite way. No measuring! Plant-based. Only 5 mins of prep! And good enough to last for several days.
chia or flax seeds
maple or agave syrup
fruit - fresh or frozen
Pull all listed ingredients out of your pantry.
Grab a big bowl and fill it 3/4 of the way with rolled oats.
Cover with your choice of plant-based milk.
Pour just enough to cover all the oats.
Add in the following ingredients: cacao powder, chia or flax seed, maple or agave syrup, cinnamon, a giant spoonful of nut butter, frozen fruit (if doing fresh, wait until the morning).
Stir all the ingredients together. Stick in the fridge overnight. It'll be ready for you when you wake up!
Serve cold or warm.
I promise there is no such thing as adding too much or too little of an ingredient. I usually find myself needing to add more in the morning.
If you are wanting to err on the side of caution, you can definitely wait to add more in the morning.
The biggest reason for letting the oats sit in the fridge overnight is to give time for the chia and oats to soak up the milk.
