Overnight oats are a healthy, make-ahead breakfast option, but they’re not always enticing enough to get me out of bed. However, these overnight oats are legitimately delicious, and so easy to make!
- Adding fruit to your overnight oats is not only healthy, it adds so much flavour.
- You can use fresh or frozen fruit, frozen fruit is great for layering because as it defrosts, it releases juices.
- If you’re using fruit that tends to brown such as apples or bananas, toss them with a touch of lemon juice and/or place them at the bottom of the jar which will help keep them from oxidising (turning brown).
- 1/3 cup gluten-free rolled oats
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 2/3 cups oat milk (or other plant-based milk)
- 1/2 banana, mashed
- 1 tsp maple syrup (optional)
- 1/4 cup raspberries, fresh or frozen
- 1 tsp peanut butter
- 1 tbsp coconut shavings to sprinkle
- 1 tsp carob chips, to sprinkle
- In a bowl combine add oats, chia and oat milk. Whisk together. Mash banana and mix into oats to combine. Optional to add maple syrup if you like it sweeter. Place in fridge to soak overnight, or for at least 30 minutes.
- When ready to eat remove from fridge. Optional to add more oat milk if desired. Top with raspberries, or other fruits of choice. Add a scoop peanut butter, sprinkle with coconut shavings and carob chips.
