Breakfast while you sleep…

Let it be known I am crazy lazy when it comes to breakfast. As a child Quaker maple brown sugar instant oatmeal was my daily breakfast of choice. As much as I want to be a breakfast person I just can’t do it.

What truly holds me back is the time it takes to prepare a fully nutritious breakfast.

Enter Overnight Oats…

The joy of overnight oats is that it takes minutes to prepare and the next morning you are greeted with a delicious transportable breakfast you can eat hot or cold.

So if you are lazy like me the recipe below will become your new best friend.

Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup Only Oats rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon Black Chia Seeds
  • 2 teaspoons Manitoba Harvest hemp hearts
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon Cracked Coconut bourbon vanilla bean coconut spread

Toppings:

  • Your choice of granola, seeds, nuts or fruit

Directions:

  • Place oats, chia seeds and hemp hearts in bowl, mason jar or any container with a lid
  • Add almond milk and coconut spread (if you don’t have coconut spread add your flavoring of choice – maple syrup, vanilla powder, cinnamon)
  • Stir ingredients, place lid on container and place in fridge overnight
  • In the morning just stir the oats and place your topping on choice on top!

* I use the Only Oats Gluten Free Rolled Oats
