Now that summer is upon us, I’m ready to start making overnight oats again! I love them and they’re so simple and easy to throw together and grab on the way out the door in the morning…or down the stairs to my office. This version is a little different that previous ones I’ve made before, but it was a little too thin for me. I like my oats to be thicker and my husband agreed. I’m going to write the recipe as I made it but next time I make this version, I’ll substitute half of the milk for vanilla Greek yogurt to make it thicker.
The sunbutter and apples were so good together. I usually dip apple slices in sunbutter, so it reminded me of that but with all the added benefits of oats, chia seeds and almond milk. YUM!
1 cup rolled oats
2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2 Tbsp chia seeds
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp sunflower seed butter
1 medium apple, chopped
In a large bowl, combine the oats and almond milk. Stir in the chia seeds, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Divide the mixture between your mason jars until they are 3/4 way full. I used pint sized mason jars and was able to fill three with a little leftover. Top each jar with a some apples and a dollop of sunflower seed butter. Close with a lid and place in the refrigerator overnight.
