Whip up a batch of these healthy overnight oats today and enjoy it all week long for breakfast (or heck, even enjoy it as a healthy snack!).
We Love Oats!
We’re back with another healthy overnight oats recipe, my friends! We know how much you love our oatmeal and overnight oatmeal varieties, so today we’re comin’ atcha with a vegan overnight oats recipe.
It’s creamy, protein and fiber-filled, and can be meal-prepped and enjoyed all week long. Before we get into this overnight oats recipe itself, let’s chat through a few of the overnight oatmeal staples that we make sure we always have on hand in the Fit Foodie Finds kitchen.
Overnight Oats Pantry Staples
Vanilla extract: You can’t go wrong with vanilla. We almost always add a teaspoon of vanilla extract to all overnight oatmeal recipes!
maple syrup: All natural sweeteners are key when it comes to overnight oats. Ditch the table sugar or brown sugar for something more natural like maple syrup.
How to Make Overnight Oats
Preparing a batch of overnight oats could not be easier! Once you have all your ingredients on-hand, you can whip up a batch in about 5 minutes, and then place them in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight.
We recommend preparing your overnight oats in the same container (HERE’S our fave for batches of any size) that you’re going to store them in for simple clean up.
Whip up a batch before bed the night before you want to enjoy them so you can wake up and have breakfast already made. #yourewelcome.
How long do overnight oats last?
Overnight oats will typically keep in the fridge for 3-5 days (depending on what recipe you use), so we often triple or quadruple an overnight oats recipe to have them on hand for breakfasts and snacks all week long.
