Overnight oats don’t have to be complicated. Here is a simple recipe that you can make and modify to your liking! Oh, and it’s vegan too!

Overnight Oats

(recipe by Oh She Glows)

Ingredients:

  • 1 large ripe/spotty banana, mashed
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (optional)

Suggested Toppings:

  • Granola
  • Fresh fruit
  • Coconut flakes
  • Pure maple syrup
  • Cinnamon
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Banana soft serve

Directions:

  • In a small bowl, mash the banana until almost smooth. Now stir in the chia seeds and cinnamon until combined.
  • Stir in the oats, almond milk, and vanilla (if using). Cover and refrigerate overnight, or a minimum of 2 hours.
  • In the morning, stir the oat mixture to combine. If your vegan overnight oats have a runny consistency even after they soak, simply stir in an additional 1 tablespoon of chia seeds and place the mixture back in the fridge until it has thickened up. If the oat mixture is too thick, simply add a splash of milk and stir to combine.

What’s great about this recipe is that you can add just about anything you want as a topping. For your guests, lay out a variety of options such as fruits, nuts, and granola and let them pick what they want. What a fun way to start the day!
