Vegan Overnight Oats (Gluten free options: Millet or Quinoa flakes)

Vegan Overnight Oats are the busy person’s breakfast secret weapon, since they take just a couple minutes to make at night before bed. When you mix together rolled oats, chia seeds, and almond milk, the chia seeds absorb the milk and the oats soften, creating an effortless no cook porridge. Place it in the kitchen counter and forget about it until morning, when you’ll wake up to creamy bowl of oats that’s just perfect any time of the year. Soaking oats increases its digestibility. The same goes for superfood powders. If you soak them overnight in liquid and then add the other ingredients for a smoothie, for e.g., your body will be able to absorb the nutrients much more easily, so you are taking more advantage of the super nutrients of these powders. Please see our blog article “Are you getting the most out of your superfoods and herbs?“ for a more detailed explanation of how soaking helps increase assimilation of the nutrients.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats or millet/quinoa flakes
  • 3/4 cup almond or rice milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla powder or cardamom powder
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut sugar

 Suggested Toppings:

  • Fresh fruit
  • Coconut flakes
  • Honey
  • Grated raw cacao paste or cacao nibs

Directions:

In a small bowl or jar, stir the chia seeds, coconut sugar and the almond/rice milk with the cinnamon, vanilla and cardamom until combined.

Cover and keep it in the kitchen counter overnight, or a minimum of 2 hours.

In the morning, stir the oat mixture to combine. If your Vegan Overnight Oats have a runny consistency even after they soak, simply stir in an additional 1 tablespoon chia seeds and place the mixture back in the fridge until it has thickened up. If the oat mixture is too thick, simply add a splash of milk and stir to combine.

Add your favourite toppings and enjoy and delicious super healthy and easily digestible breakfast!
