Nothing says, “I love my life!” like overnight oatmeal-in-a-jar. The possibilities are truly endless. Whether it’s fruit, nuts, seeds, chocolate chips, (veggies!), you name it, throw it in! You can even make a “carrot cake” overnight oatmeal with grated carrot, raisins, walnuts, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and any plant-based milk. Go to town!

These measurements are a good sized portion for one.

In a mason jar put 1/2 cup rolled or steel-cut oats, 1 1/4 cup (Silk!) almond milk, 1 TBSP chia seeds (I stayed away from chia seeds for years because they sounded too healthy and weird. Turns out they’re amazing (and super healthy!) – they give it a bubble tea-like texture and they are LOADED with fiber, protein, and omega-3), drizzle in maple syrup, sprinkle in cinnamon. Sometimes I add a dash of nutmeg. If you add in other stuff, keep adding a little bit more milk to absorb the extras. 

Shake it up (after you put the lid on) :), put in fridge, and when you wake up in the morning you will have the most delicious oatmeal! 

Be daring. Go vegan.
