How to Prep Overnight Oats for the Week
Hey Everyone! It’s a new week, a new year and a new you!
Breakfast has not traditionally been something that I have espoused and I want to change that. In the past, I would always skip breakfast, unless I had easy access to a sweet baked “something”. I would head straight for the coffee with my creamer and that would be fine until mid-morning when I would be so hungry that I could eat an 8-course dinner!
Really, having breakfast and taking care of yourself is just simply taking responsibility for yourself and that’s always a good thing.
Yeah, no more of that! Taking care of yourself also means literally feeding yourself nutrient-dense and satisfying foods. What is satisfying will differ from person to person which is why I love how you can customize overnight oats.
Chose whichever fruit you like and is in season, include cinnamon if you want, honey (for non-vegans), agave, maple syrup – whatever suits your fancy!
Getting my overnight oats prepped for the week actually gets me excited about breakfast. New Year, New Me 🙂
Since I mentioned flavor, let’s talk milk, as in Silk Milk and Silk Creamer. I love the FLAVOR infused in these milks and it adds to the deliciousness of your new favorite breakfast.
Eric and I are always trying to include more plant-based foods into our diet. We feel that it is cleaner, better for the environment and Eric is lactose-intolerant.
I found Silk Cashewmilk, Almondmilk in the refrigerated beverages section of Walmart. I also found Silk Almondmilk Hazelnut creamer which is so tasty that I actually contemplated drinking it out of the carton! I love how creamy it is, so I used it in the same amount (1/2 cup) for one of my overnight oats for a super duper creamy version! FYI, Silk products will feature new packaging coming out in mid-late January, so keep an eye out.
How to Prep Overnight Oats for the Week Tutorial
Step #1 – Gather Your Ingredients & Containers
I love pint size mason jars and they work GREAT for this recipe tutorial.
Walmart also sells the exact pint size mason jars that I use in this tutorial.
Step #2 – Add Dry Ingredients to Your Containers
You can double or triple this recipe amount for your serving size preferences.
- 1/2 cup whole oats
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds *optional
- you can also add 1 tablespoon peanut butter, sunflower butter, almond butter, cashew butter or any favorite fruit/nut “butter” *optional
- 1/2-1 teaspoon flax *optional
Step #3 – Add Wet Ingredients to ONE Container Before Each New Day of the Week
The night before each morning, add 1/2 cup of Cashewmilk, Almondmilk or preferred milk to a mason jar pre-filled with your dry ingredients.
Step #4 – Each Morning Add Toppings like Fruit and Preferred Sweeteners
This is the fun part! You can heat up your overnight oats in the microwave (make sure the container is microwave safe) or enjoy them cold. Top with berries, fruit, drizzle with chocolate, more cinnamon-sugar – anything you want!
