Overnight Oats have become my overnight happiness! It's so easy to make ( Thanks, Gwen!) and tastes delicious. I've actually been on a pretty strict diet lately due to some a couple projects I'm attached to right now. That is also an exciting update that I will share later. In fact, later this month, this blog will receive a bit of a make over. But, back to Overnight Oats.
Overnight Vanilla-Orange Steel Cut Oatmeal
serves 4 big portions
2 cups steel cut oats
2 cups almond milk
Juice of 1 orange
1 tablespoon chia seeds
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon french vanilla extract (or sub in more vanilla extract)
Mix all ingredients together in a seal-able container and place in the refrigerator overnight.
Because I've been on a pretty strict diet, I don't use maple syrup. I'm currently not consuming dairy, gluten, sugar, or alcohol. I use unsweetened almond milk as well. I do add goji berries for a bit more sweetness.
I hope you enjoy like I do!
