It’s meal prep Sunday, so today we are bringing you an insanely easy recipe that you can go make right now! The best part? You can customize this recipe to add in your favorite flavors and toppings.
Simple Overnight Oats
-1/2 cup whole grain oats
-Unsweetened plain or vanilla almond or coconut milk
-Jar for storing
Toppings (all optional):
-1 teaspoon cinnamon
-1 tablespoon walnuts, almonds, or pecans
-1 tablespoon chia seeds
-1/2 banana, slices
-Couple strawberries, sliced
-Handful of berries
-1 teaspoon maple syrup or honey
Pour the oats into a jar. Pour about 1/2 cup of milk (maybe slightly more) to just cover the oats. You can seal the jar now and store in your refrigerator overnight and top in the morning, or place some of the toppings, like the honey and cinnamon on first, and then store in the fridge. However, if you are planning on using nuts, we suggest you wait to put those on in the morning so that they stay crunchy and do not become soft.
The next morning, add desired toppings, a pinch more of milk if needed, and dig in! Or, you can reseal and take with you to work!
*Please note, this overnight oat recipe is a chilled oatmeal. You can heat up in a microwave if you prefer warm, but this chilled version is a tasty change.
