Easy Overnight Oats

Breakfast

Mornings are busy! 

Spending 20 minutes making healthy oatmeal usually doesn't fit into the schedule!

And packages of instant oats are usually over processed and full of sugar...

Solution?

Easy Overnight Oats. 

These oats are so easy to make - you put all the ingredients in a mason jar (or any type of airtight container) the night before and in the morning you have a delicious, healthy breakfast that you can take anywhere or eat quickly at home. No mess, no cooking and no need to wake up earlier than you already do!

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 Mason jar (any airtight container will work)
  • ½  cup oats (rolled or steel cut)
  • ⅔  cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 tsp pure maple syrup
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup chopped fruit (I like to use bananas or blueberries)
  • Handful of walnut halves (optional)

Tips & Nutrition

The oats, walnuts and hemp seeds are full of protein and iron that provide long lasting energy and keep you full. Oats are a whole grain -  meaning they release long term energy without a crash so your energy level is maintained and you aren’t looking for a snack 30 minutes after eating.

This is the perfect busy morning breakfast for everyone in the house. Try experimenting with other fruit/nut/seed additions and combinations to see what you like best!
