I’m in love with a new breakfast food. For the past several years, nothing has gotten between me and my Cheerios. I’ve been faithful and true. But there comes that point in every relationship when a bit of excitement is needed. I found it in overnight oats. This little recipe fits all my requirements: healthy, easy, and tasty. But it also has a bonus of variety. Simply by adding different fruits you can get a different taste. Without further ado, meet my new love.
- 1/2 c old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1/2 c coconut milk
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch cinnamon
- 1 mason jar
- Mix all ingredients in a pint-sized mason jar.
- Cover with lid and store in fridge overnight.
- In the morning, top with your favorite fresh fruit. Enjoy!
Note: For added flavor and variety, mix in a couple of tablespoons of your favorite jam or preserves. Experiment! Add some peanut butter for extra protein. A Nutella nut? Add that in one jar. The options are limitless!
