berry overnight oats

This is by far my most favorite breakfast at the moment. It's quick, easy, cheap and delicious. Not to mention good for you too, plus the options are endless. Since it's still summer and we still have some blueberries and managed to find some decent looking strawberries at the grocery store, I've been making berry overnight oats and they are just so good! You could even eat this for dessert!

I don't know about you, but I always keep my pretty jam jars. I was on a kick of buying Bonne Maman jam for a while and btw, I adore that brand! It's delicious jam and of course the other selling point for me was attributed to the fact that the jars are so aesthetically pleasing! I love using these jars for my oats as well as storing leftovers, so these are what I use for my oats. If you don't happen to have a jam jar, feel free to use a bowl. It'll still be delish, I promise!

Recipe

Makes one serving

1/2 cup of whole oats

2 diced strawberries

1/8 cup blueberries

1 tsp chia seeds

1 tsp coconut sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup unsweetened flax milk or other unsweetened plant-based milk

Add all ingredients to your jar and then slowly pour in the plant-based milk. Place lid onto the jar and shake until ingredients are well combined. If you're using a bowl, just stir well and cover with foil.

Place oats in the fridge overnight. In the morning they will be thick and ready to eat! Feel free to top these delicious oats with crushed walnuts or almonds!

YUM!
