Overnight Oats are a big craze these days, but when I've tun out and crave a sweet, raw and healthy breakfast, these are my next go-to! I put all of the ingredients together before my morning workout, giving everything time to set and combine nicely without the long wait! All you have to do is mix this healthy combo together in a bowl, walk a way for a few minutes, then come back to add your favorite toppings and devour!
Here's what you'll need:
1/3 cup raw extra thick cut oats (Bob's Red Mill)
1 TBSP hemp hearts
1 TBSP Chia seeds
1 tsp maple syrup
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder (Orgain)
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
Toppings: I used 1/2 cup fresh berries and 2 tbsp pomegranate seeds.
In a cereal bowl, combine everything except the fruit, mixing well. Cover and allow the ingredients to set for 15-20 minutes. This will ensure the oats absorb enough of the milk to be tender, but still have some bite to them!
After the time is up, stir the oats again, then add your toppings! Feel free to mix it up, with different fruit combinations and nuts for some extra crunch ☺️
I hope you'll find this recipe both simple and delicious. It's my hope to share meals that are healthy and not overly complicated, so please let me know what you think!
