Strawberry Overnight Oats
These strawberry overnight oats are SO delicious and such a perfect make-ahead healthy breakfast. It is super creamy, slightly sweet and filled with protein and fiber to help you stay full until lunch time.
- 1 ¼ cup vegan plain milk
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp almond butter - or other nut/seed butter
- 1-1 ½ tbsp maple syrup - or to taste
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ½ cup fresh strawberries - chopped
Stir all the ingredients together in a jar until the almond butter is combined.
Transfer to the fridge and let sit for at least 2 hours before enjoying, but preferably for 8-12 hours (or overnight). The raw oats will soak up on the liquid and soften during that time. Enjoy cold with toppings (more strawberries, vegan yogurt, nuts, coconut milk, etc), if desired.
If making this overnight oatmeal ahead of time (more than 24-48 hours ahead), then simply let the strawberries sit on top of raw oats mixture instead of incorporating them (or leave the fruits out until ready to eat). Your raw oatmeal will stay fresh longer that way.
