Recipe: Overnight Oats

The first time I had over-night oats it was for breakfast before a long day of cross country skiing, where a great start to the morning is necessary. Enjoyed with a warm cup of coffee, this easy breakfast is how I start my day quite a few days of the week. This is my spin on the original recipe shown to me by Dorian over at CoutuKitsch, I’ve tweaked it to make it my own & you can too!



– 1/3 Cup of Rolled Oats, and Spelt Flakes mixed together
– 1 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
– 1/4 cup mixed pecans, dried cherries, raisins, and quinoa flakes
– 1.5 Tbsp Chia Seeds
– 1 cup milk of your choice ( cows, soy, rice, almond, coconut)

– 1 ripe banana

– 1 tbsp maple syrup


Almond Milk


The Night Before:

1. Mix your chia seeds, milk, vanilla, and oats together in a bowl.

2. Cover your bowl with a lid, or plastic wrap.

3. Place in fridge, leaving over night

Mixed Oats


The Next Morning:

1. Grab your bowl from the fridge.

2. Add nuts and dried fruit, and quinoa flakes

3. Add a cut up ripe banana ( optional )

4. Pour in a little maple syrup ( my fav!)

5. Stir it up and Enjoy!

All Done
