These overnight oats are gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and most importantly: EASY! I make them every Sunday night to ensure that our Monday mornings of getting kids out of the door and getting ready for the week are smooth and calm. Slow carbs are great for hormone health because they keep your blood sugar steady, contribute to a healthy microbiome, and are amazing for PMS cravings as well. If you want to add some extra protein, try adding some protein powder (my recommendations are below) or organic, grass-fed Greek yogurt, if you tolerate dairy well. The toppings for these are endless and I usually make them seasonal, which my boys love. Don’t forget to try the fall version if you don’t have berries on hand. I love pairing this with Tejari’s organic pumpkin spice protein powder. SO good.

The EASIEST Overnight Oats

Ingredients

This recipe makes about 4 servings of overnight oats.

For the overnight oats:
1.5 cups of organic* overnight oats
1 cup vanilla almond milk, I like the Malk brand – regular almond milk will work as well, you’ll just add some pure vanilla extract instead
1 cup of CocoJune yogurt, or yogurt of choice
2 tbsp pure maple syrup
1 tsp pure vanilla extract, if not using vanilla almond milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp Himalayan pink or sea salt
Optional: 4 tbsp of Tejari Superfood protein powder

* Oats are one of the most heavily sprayed crops out there and contain high levels of glyphosate (aka “RoundUp”) that can disrupt your gut and hormones. I would put purchasing organic oats at the top of my list.

The toppings:
1 cup of organic blueberries & strawberries
1 – 2 tsp of hemp seeds
sliced almonds
a sprinkle of cinnamon

Fall version:
1 apple, diced
1/2 cup of walnuts, chopped
a sprinkle of cinnamon

Process

  1. Mix all overnight oat ingredients together in a large bowl. Divide into four smaller containers. You could use Mason jars as well, but I really like the 8 oz glass prep bowl set by S’well.
  2. Refrigerate overnight.
  3. Add toppings and dig in! Marvel at how easy and relaxing that made your morning.
