Summer overnight oats are made with fresh local ingredients. They are easy to make and just perfect for an on the go breakfast.
This week a few of my blogging friends and I are celebrating farmer’s market week, and we are bringing you a week full of farm fresh recipes. My first find is these overnight oats. A few weeks ago I went to a local farmer’s market and picked up locally grown oats from a farm that’s right in the town where I live. And I have to say that these oats were super fresh, and created a nice and creamy batch of overnight oats without any dairy products. My other finds that day were sweet and juicy local peaches and blueberries to add to this super fresh breakfast that I found myself happily eating all week long.
Even though overnight oats are kind of passe now, they are so easy to make and transport, and a great way to eat oatmeal in the summer. The thing that I like the most about overnight oats is that they are far from boring, there are so many different ingredients you can add to them. I make up a few jars at one time, and I have my breakfast ready to go for the week. One less thing to worry about on those busy mornings!
The base ingredients for these overnight oats are pretty basic; oats, chia seeds, almond butter and filtered water. They are gluten free, dairy free, vegan and the almond butter and chia seeds add an extra punch of protein.
- ½ cup old fashioned rolled oats - not instant
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon almond or peanut butter
- 1 cup filtered water
- 1 medium peach chopped
- a handful of blueberries
- place oats into a pint sized mason jar or pint container
- add the chia seeds, nut butter, and water
- cover and shake or mix well
- add the peach and berries mix again
- place in refrigerator overnight
- top with fresh fruit and nuts if desired
- Add 1/4 cup Greek yogurt in place of nut butter
- Use any combination of your favorite fruit
- Stir in 1 1/2teaspoons of cacao powder and a 1/2 teaspoon (or more to taste) of organic maple syrup
