Overnight Oats

Author: Cookie and Kate

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 0 minutes

Yield: 1 serving

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup muesli or 1/3 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 1 tbsp natural peanut butter or almond butter
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice for a very thick consistency or up to 2/3 cup milk for a lighter consistency
  • 1/2 cup fruit (fresh or frozen berries- strawberries, raspberries, blueberries)
  • Drizzle of maple syrup or honey, if desired

Instructions:

  1. In a jar or bowl (1 pint mason jar is perfect), combine the muesli (or old fashioned rolled oats), chia and flax seeds, and nut butter. Add a splash of the milk and mix the nut butter into the oats. Then add the rest of the milk and stir to combine.
  2. Top with your fruit of choice. (If you used more milk than 1/2 cup and you want your fruit to stay on top, wait to top the oats until you are ready to serve. If you are using fruit that doesn't store well, like sliced apple or banana, wait to top the oats until you're ready to serve).
  3. Place the lid on the jar and refrigerate overnight, or up to 5 days. When you're ready to serve, add a drizzle of maple syrup or honey if you'd like, and enjoy chilled or heated.

Warm it up: Overnight oats are typically served chilled. However, if you prefer warm oats, you can heat them in the microwave. Just use a microwave safe jar and stir frequently while you are warming them up.

Make it gluten free: Use certified gluten free oats.
