Overnight Oat Parfait

Now that the weather is warmer, this girl has been craving a chilled breakfast. No worries oatmeal, I have not deserted you!

Angela from Oh She Glows makes the most fantastic breakfast parfaits :) I have been wanting to make one of these guys for the longest time; I am SO GLAD I DID! There are countless variations and I have a feeling I may have found my staple summer breakfast.How-To make an Overnight Oat Parfait 

Step 1: Prepare your overnight oats. In a small tupperware mix together 1/4 C rolled oats, 1/4C oat bran, 1T chia seeds, cinnamon, 1/2C vanilla almond milk (or any kind of milk), and 1/2C water. Chill in the fridge overnight.
 

This is what it should look like in the morning: chia seeds expanded and very creamy!

Step 2: Assemble your parfait! I layered my oats with sliced banana, peanut flour sauce (peanut flour + milk), and raisins. Then, I topped my parfait with more goodies: sun flower seeds and unsweetened coconut shavings.

 

Step 3: Unnecessary but necessary at the same time. I am guilty of poring my beautiful parfait back into a more accessible container. Oops :) I also added a bloob of my deliciously perfect maple cinnamon almond butter.

Well that breakfast took all of 2 minutes to devour. The vanilla almond milk gives it a hint of sweetness that is just irresistible! Did I mention the texture is extremely creamy?? I am off to my internship! We are making frittatas today!! YIPPIE.

    I’m so glad to have found this post! Finally a healthy recipe I can prepare in my dorm room without much hassle. No more breakfast burritos for me… well maybe just one or two every now and then :)

    found you via pinterest. made this concoction last night. so yummy. my mods were as follows:
    unsweeted soy milk, no nuts, no banana, and added one-half tablespoon UNCOOKED red lentils for extra protein. next time i’ll add even more lentils. they gave quite a satisfying crunch. am thinking the addition of raw shredded carrot would be quite nice.
