This is a simple and delicious breakfast/snack. One of the reason why I love overnight oats is the shear simplicity of it. It all goes in one container, give it a stir and leave it there until the following day (or the day after in my case). You certainly do not need to heat overnight oats but I find it improves the flavor/texture.
1/2 cup jumbo oats*
1/2 cup rye flakes
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1 cup plant based milk (+ 1/4 cup extra when you are ready to eat)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch Himalayan salt
1 small pear, washed and cubed
1 tablespoon maple syrup/coconut sugar
Toppings: blueberries, chopped nuts (almond, cashews and hazelnuts are particularly recommended), cacao nibs, etc
* you can use regular by I prefer the texture of the jumbo oats
1. Add all of the ingredients to a mason jar (or a container with a tight fitting lid) and give it a good mix. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours.
2. Gently heat with a splash or two of plant based milk, add the toppings of your choice and enjoy.
