Easy, healthy make-ahead breakfast! Take 5 minutes to assemble these vanilla almond overnight oats at night and they’re ready for you in the morning!
I love this easy, 6-ingredient, make-ahead vegan breakfast! It only takes 5 minutes to assemble in the evening, then just cover and set in the fridge for a quick grab-n-go breakfast in the morning. You can either eat it as is, or top with fresh berries, bananas, granola, nut butters, etc. The vanilla-almond flavor is SO GOOD with a bit of sweetness from the maple syrup (and a chia seed boost!) I always look forward to the simple yet delicious, sweet flavor. Hope it gets your mornings off to a great start as well!
Vanilla Almond Overnight Oats
Easy, healthy make-ahead breakfast! Take 5 minutes to assemble these overnight oats the night before and they're ready in the morning.
- 1/2 cup rolled oats (GF if desired)
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 2 tsp. chia seeds (I use this brand)
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp. almond extract
- 1-2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
- Combine all ingredients except oats in a small bowl or jar. Stir to combine.
- Add oats, gently stir, and make sure they’re all fully submerged.
- Cover and place in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.
- Enjoy as is or top with banana, berries, granola, nut butters, etc. before serving.
I use unsweetened plain almond milk for this recipe. Adjust the syrup as desired depending on how much sweetness you like (or if you’re using a sweetened milk). You may find you need a little less vanilla if you’re using a vanilla flavored milk. The almond extract is strong so be sure to only use the 1/8 tsp. otherwise it can overpower.
