Happy Thursday you all! I hope you’ve been having a wonderful week. I don’t know about you, but between early mornings and chasing a toddler around, eating a good breakfast is not only incredibly important to me (and my family), but fast and healthy options are just as important!
These easy vegan overnight oats are one of our favorite go-to options for busy mornings. There are SO many different variations to these, but today I am going to share a SUPER easy option with only 7 ingredients that can be whipped up in a flash the night before, and customized to your heart’s desire. 😉 Plus, they are full of fiber and protein, and the oats provide a kick of energy to hold you through the morning. Oh – and you’ll have less dishes to wash after breakfast. Win-win!
Simply shake it up, let it sit in the fridge overnight, and enjoy when you wake up! These easy vegan overnight oats are super yummy as-is, or you can add any of your favorite toppings.
Some of my favorite toppings include:
Chocolate chips or cocoa nibs
Nut or seed butter
Jam or fruit compote
Fruit (I chose peaches for mine!)
Granola (look here and here for two of my favorites)
This recipe makes one moderate-sized serving, so you will want to make multiple batches if you are planning on feeding your whole family, or double it if you like hearty helpings. 😉 One recipe is enough for me, but my husband can eat almost two, and my 20-month-old eats about half a recipe. Leftovers keep well in the fridge for a couple of days, and just get thicker and creamier the longer they sit.
I hope you’ll try this recipe out, and let me know what you think in the comments below! As always, have a lovely weekend! 🙂
