Overnight Oats 3 Ways

I tried my first overnight oats recipe about six years ago and thought it was awesome that I had finally found a grab and go breakfast option that I enjoyed.  What I really loved was that I could mix and match flavors on a simple base of oats, ground flax, and chia seeds to get the perfect combination.  I have tried so many options, but these are my 3 go-to recipes.  May I present VegInspired’s Overnight Oats 3 Ways so you can get out the door in a hurry on those busy mornings.

Overnight Oats

The ratio of dry to wet is the critical component of the success of these oats, we’ve tried a bunch of ratios, but find our base of 1 cup rolled oats (we like Bob’s Red Mill), 1/2 tablespoon chia, 1 tablespoon ground flax, and 1 1/4 cups of nondairy milk to be perfect.  I share three awesome recipes, but honestly, the combinations are endless.  Do you have a favorite combination?  Share it in the comments below so we can create an excellent overnight oats resource.

Non Dairy Milk

We elect to use almond milk, but any nondairy milk would work perfectly in these overnight oats.  I think the Elmhurst Walnut Milk would pair well with some frozen strawberries for another superb recipe.  Snag some Elmhurst HERE with our discount link. (Use code Autumn25).

You could also use nondairy flavored milk like vanilla or even chocolate.  Ooohhh I love brainstorming combinations like this!  I am thinking peanut butter, and chocolate milk overnight oats would be another good one.  Yes!  Add those ingredients to the grocery list.
