This vegan overnight oats recipe is excellent for anyone who likes to meal prep or is constantly going somewhere and has little to no time to make an elaborate breakfast. What makes this recipe really fun as well is the fact that it’s so easily customizable and it’s so easy to prepare you can turn it into a fun activity to do with your kids or family.
½ cup – Rolled Oats
¾ cup – Almond Milk
¼ cup – Maple Syrup
2 Tbsp – Chia Seeds
¼ tsp – Vanilla Extract
¼ tsp – Cinnamon
2 Tbsp – Raisins
Step 1 – In a bowl combine the rolled oats, almond milk, maple syrup, chia seeds, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and raisins.
Step 2 – Cover the mixture and leave in refrigerator overnight or for at least 2 hours.
Step 3 – Once the oats are removed from the fridge, stir the oat mixture to combine. If the oats are too thick for your taste then add a splash of almond milk. If the oatmeal feels too runny you can add an additional tablespoon of chia seeds to thicken.
This recipe is so simple to create it takes almost no time at all. Every time I’ve done this recipe it has come out perfectly and even with guests this recipe can be modified so easily that you could tailor every bowl to adhere to someone’s diet restrictions (if they have any.) Maple syrup can be easily substituted with agave. You can also replace the maple syrup by mashing a ripe banana and mixing it in with all the other ingredients before leaving the oats soak in the fridge.
