Instructions

  1. In a jar or container with a tight-fitting lid, combine the rolled oats, chia seeds, maple syrup, plant-based milk, vanilla extract, and salt. Give it a good stir or shake to ensure all the ingredients are well combined.

  2. Secure the lid and place the jar in the refrigerator overnight or for at least 4-6 hours. This allows the oats and chia seeds to absorb the liquid and create a creamy and pudding-like texture.

  3. In the morning, give the mixture a good stir to distribute any settled ingredients. If the mixture seems too thick, you can add a splash of plant-based milk to achieve your desired consistency.

  4. Now comes the fun part! Customize your overnight oats by adding your favorite toppings. Fresh fruits like berries, sliced bananas, or diced apples add a burst of flavor and natural sweetness. Sprinkle some nuts or seeds for a satisfying crunch, and don't forget a drizzle of nut butter or a sprinkle of coconut flakes for extra indulgence.

  5. Enjoy your vegan overnight oats straight from the jar or transfer them to a bowl. Either way, you're in for a nutritious and delicious start to your day!

 

Benefits and Variations

Vegan overnight oats offer numerous benefits. They are packed with fiber, which promotes healthy digestion and helps keep you full until lunchtime. The chia seeds add an extra boost of omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and protein. Plus, with the versatility of toppings, you can create endless flavor combinations to suit your taste preferences.

To add more nutritional goodness, you can incorporate other ingredients into your overnight oats. Try adding a tablespoon of flaxseeds for an extra dose of fiber and omega-3s. For a protein boost, mix in a scoop of plant-based protein powder or a dollop of vegan yogurt. Feel free to experiment with spices like cinnamon or nutmeg for added warmth and flavor.
