Easy Overnight Oats Recipe

Overnight oats are such an easy breakfast whether you're in a rush or have some times to relax in the morning. Oatmeal is a super nutritious meal to add into your diet; oats are loaded with fibre, protein, magnesium, potassium and omega 3 fatty acids. Oats are naturally sugar free, an added bonus for all my sugar free fam out there.


Hot oatmeal with a sprinkle of brown sugar has always been a staple in my household but overnight oats are now a new favourite, and I've gotten a few friends hooked on it. Overnight oats are raw oats that are soaked overnight in some form of liquid like almond milk or coconut milk. The oats absorb the liquid and soften them, the same way that cooking them would.

There are HUNDREDS are overnight oats recipes on the internet, so take a look and see which one tickles your flavour fancy. Personally, I prefer more simple overnight oats with a side of berries, or a nut topping.

Overnight Oats Recipe
1 cup of gluten free oats
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp maple syrup OR coconut sugar
1 tbsp hemp seeds
1 tbsp flax seeds
1 tsp MCT oil
1 cup of nut milk (I like almond) or enough to cover oats

Optional Extras
Nut Butter
Raisons
Dried cranberries
Pumplin Seeds

Add the oats, seeds and spices to a small mason jar (mine is from Muji). Add in your nut milk, enough to cover the oats up. Mix everything together or put the lid on and give it a shake. That's it! Store in the fridge overnight and enjoy in the AM. If you forget to do it the night before, switch out your regular oats for some kind of fast cooking oats. These will absorb and 'cook' faster so you can eat them as soon as you get to work.
