If you've never heard of "overnight oats" they are a Pinterest sensation and for good reason!
They're an easy, make-ahead breakfast that has all the goodness a regular, plain bowl of oatmeal has to offer.
But you don't have to settle for a boring bowl of plain oatmeal...this layered cup of goodness contains fresh strawberries and chia seeds to give it extra nutrition.
Preparation takes about 5 minutes making it the perfect grab-and-go morning treat that will keep you satisfied.
All you have to do it mix the oats and strawberries in separate bowls, layer them in a mason jar, and put them in the refrigerator overnight and breakfast is ready to go!
Traditional overnight oat recipes usually aren't vegan because they contain some variation of yogurt, but this vegan-friendly recipe needs only 5 clean, real food ingredients.
This healthy breakfast option is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, no-cook, contains no refined sugar, and is Medical Medium® compliant.
Karielyn's Expert Tips + Ingredient Substitutions
Here are some of my expert tips to make this recipe perfectly:
Oats: I used gluten-free quick-rolled oats for this recipe, and haven't tested it using another type of oats.
Homemade Almond Milk: This is the milk of my preference, however, you can always use your favorite non-dairy milk. Another great option is JOI Organic Almond Milk made with 100% organic almonds.
Maple Syrup: This can be substituted with organic date syrup, organic date nectar, or even organic coconut sugar. The recipe isn't overly sweet, so feel free to increase/adjust the amount of sweetener to your preference.
Strawberries: You can use either fresh or frozen strawberries, just make sure they are diced very small. In addition, you can change the fruit by using organic wild blueberries, organic peaches, organic raspberries, organic blackberries, organic mango, etc.
Coconut Sugar: This can be substituted with organic maple syrup, organic date syrup, or organic coconut nectar. Feel free to adjust the amount of sweetener to your preference.
Chia Seeds: I added this ingredient to increase the nutritional profile, but they can be omitted if you prefer.
Serving Size: This recipe will make approximately (2) cups. Nutritional information is for (1) cup which is (1) serving.
