Maple Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are one of our favorite quick and healthy breakfast ideas. They are great for grabbing while heading out the door or for those times when the kids need to eat and you don’t want to cook. Overnight oats are great for road trips and vacations because they hold up really well and if you pack them in individual containers, all you need is a spoon and you are in business.

This recipe is awesome because there are minimal ingredients, which means you can whip them up in 10 minutes or less.

  • Almond Milk – I normally use unsweetened but this time I add some vanilla flavored.
  • Oats
  • Pure Maple Syrup
  • Chia Seeds
  • Salt
  • Water

To get started let’s add your dry ingredients to a large bowl starting with your oats. I like to use the One Degree Organic Sprouted Rolled Oats. The quality is really good and Costco started carrying them which makes getting them so much easier!

Next up add in your chia seeds. Chia seeds might not seem like much but they actually offer some great health benefits.

  • High in potassium, omega-3’s, niacin, iron and magensium
  • High in fiber and calcium
  • Rich in antioxidants
  • Help control blood sugar

This is just to name a few of the many benefits these great little seeds provide and last but not least add your salt.

Combine your dry ingredients together and then add your maple syrup, almond milk and water. For the almond milk, I really love the brand MALK because their milk only contains 3 ingredients: Organic Almonds, Himalayan Salt and Filtered Water. I had only seen this brand at Whole Foods but they have started branching out to places like Target and Haggen.

Mix all of your ingredients together, cover and put in the fridge for 2-3 hours. You can add more water or almond milk if you like a thinner consistency. Once finished you can leave in a large bowl or I like to make individual portions to make grab and go a little easier.

These are great served with fruit, peanut butter, jam or even more syrup. They can be eaten alone as a meal or as a side to something else. I hope you enjoy this quick, healthy and tasty recipe.💖💖
