Need a quick breakfast for mornings on the run? This easy overnight oat recipe is an excellent option for a make-ahead and stress-free morning. Don’t be afraid to put your spin on it by including an assortment of add-ins to increase the nutrient value. Spice it up with a few of these optional add-ins: toasted coconut, hemp seeds, nuts/nut butter, seeds/seed butter, bee pollen, ground milk thistle, moringa, cacao nibs/powder, turmeric, cinnamon, etc.
1 cup Certified Gluten-Free Rolled Oats
2 tbsp. Chia Seeds
2 cups Homemade or Clean Plant-Based Milk
1 tsp. Clean Vanilla Extract
4 tbsp. Pure Maple Syrup (or less)
1/2 cup Fresh Fruit (chopped)
1/2 cup Microgreens (stick with broccoli, kale and/or sunflower if you want to avoid anything too bitter/spicy)
Optional add-ins: toasted coconut, hemp seeds, nuts/nut butter, seeds/seed butter, bee pollen, ground milk thistle, moringa, cacao nibs/powder, turmeric, cinnamon, etc.
In a medium-sized bowl with a lid, combine all ingredients and whisk until well combined. Let the mixture sit for 3-5 minutes and whisk again until thoroughly combined, and chia seeds are no longer clumpy. Place the covered bowl into the refrigerator and allow it to cool overnight.
Remove from the refrigerator and scoop portions into individual serving bowls and top with your favorite fresh fruit and microgreens.
