I’ve been on the overnight oats bandwagon for quite some time now. Despite all the recipes that I see on blogs, it was actually Mom’s hairdresser that finally got me to make a batch.
And now, they are my favorite quick and easy breakfast. They are healthy, vegan, gluten free, and ready to go in the morning when I know I’ll busy and don’t want to spend tons of time thinking about what I’m having for breakfast or making it.
I always start with gluten free oats and almond or coconut milk, but from there, the sky is the limit. Sometimes I add cinnamon or ginger. Vanilla is a great go-to. So is carob or cocoa powder. Oh and dried fruit is fun too because it adds some sweetness and the fruit becomes so plump and juicy.
The sky is basically the limit with overnight oats and the different flavor possibilities. So when this Sunday Supper’s theme was coffee and I didn’t want to bake something, I thought coffee would be a welcome addition to overnight oats.
And it is, but milk and sugar are musts because the bitterness is intensified by soaking overnight with the oats. So if you love coffee, you will love these, and if not, maybe mix your oats with something different.
I am on a huge coffee kick, so I really enjoyed kick starting my morning with some caffeine and this healthy, hearty dish!
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats (gluten free if necessary)
½ cup brewed coffee, cold
½ cup almond or coconut milk
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
In a medium bowl stir together oats, coffee, milk, syrup, and vanilla until well combined. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, divide into two bowls and add an additional ¼ - ½ cup coconut or almond milk to each bowl. Top with fruit and/or nuts and serve immediately.
Additional chilling time is necessary
