Vanilla Almond Overnight Oats
An easy, nourishing, make-ahead breakfast. Take 5 minutes to assemble this the night before, then it's ready for you in the morning!
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (gluten-free if desired)
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 2 tsp. chia seeds
- 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 and gently stir. Lightly press down with a spoon to make sure they are all fully submerged in the liquid.
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.
Plant milk: 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.
Almond extract: It is very strong so be sure to only use the 1/8 tsp. otherwise it can overpower.
