I LOVE oats, hot, cold, in my yogurt, in my muffins, in bread, I mean the possibilities are endless. Lately I have been searching blogs and the web for perfect “overnight oats”! Basically, overnight oats are just oats you let soak in some combination of liquid, yogurt, and spices (optional) overnight and then enjoy in the morning! I couldn’t find the perfect combination of ingredients for myself online so I decided to experiment and here is my first trial:
Overnight Cinnamon Raspberry Peach Oats
· ½ cup plain non-fat Dannon yogurt
· ½ cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk
· ½ cup old fashion oats
· 1 tsp cinnamon
· 3 slices frozen peaches
· handful of raspberries
· ½ oz of almonds
The night before I combined to oats, yogurt, almond milk, some peaches, and cinnamon in a bowl:
Next I mixed the ingredients together:
Then I covered them with foil and placed them in the fridge to soak overnight!
In the morning I added the almonds and raspberries and Taaadaaa:
Often people add more liquid in the morning but I didn’t need to because I was happy with the consistency! Overall I was very pleased with my first attempt at over night oats! The texture is unqiue and the toppings are endless. For more protein you could add peanut butter or protein powder instead of the fruit.
