Overnight Oats

As college students we are often notorious for not being the greatest morning people. Yet, still some of us have early morning classes and full days scheduled. Sometimes along the way simple things like breakfast can get lost in the midst. One solution that has proved valuable to me is prepping breakfast the night before. That way when I’m running out the door in the morning, I can just grab breakfast from the fridge and go, no extra stops or extra money spent.

Vegan Overnight Oats:

1 banana, mushed (Optional, but adds natural sweetness)

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1/3 cup rolled oats (gluten free if gluten sensitive)

3/4 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (optional, but wonderful)

1 tablespoon peanut butter (or to taste, or optional, of nut butter of choice)

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl or container, set in fridge overnight. In the morning eat as is, or add toppings of choice. Good toppings might be fruit, crushed nuts, flax seed, etc.
