A few months ago I discovered OverNight Oats (aka, ONOs) from Brittany’s blog. The basic concept behind ONOs is simple: mix oats with milk of choice and leave in the fridge overnight. These oats are similar to cold cereal or grits, and I find them delicious! Added bonus: ONOs keep you full until lunch time! No mid-morning snacks for this girl.
I started to experiment with different flavors, and I think I have found a winning combination. My beloved raspberries and chocolate… to die for! I ate this for breakfast for a week straight when I first discovered this combo!
1/2 cup of steal cut oats (or old fashioned)
1/2 cup of Almond Breeze unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 T cocoa powder
1/2 t vanilla extract
1 t chia seeds (optional)
1 t honey (optional)
1/4 cup frozen raspberries
Mix the first 6 ingredients together until combined. Mix in frozen raspberries. Put in fridge overnight. So simple!
The following morning I topped the concoction with a little extra almond milk to loosen up the oats. This is becoming a favorite for breakfast or desert!
