Ingredients

  • The main ingredient of blended overnight oats is…oats! I love old-fashioned oats (rolled oats) for the best texture but you can also use quick oats or steel cut oats. If you use steel cut you will need to blend it for longer to create a creamy texture.
  • To add to the creaminess use a plant-based milk such as oat milk or unsweetened almond milk. You can really use any type of milk you prefer! If you like it sweeter use a sweetened plant milk.
  • For more flavor and texture we will use ground flax seeds and chia seeds (adds more fiber!). The addition of vanilla extract and pure maple syrup adds a touch of sweetness and flavor.
  • For the simple raspberry jam you will combine fresh raspberries with chia seeds in a small bowl. If you want a sweeter jam, add in a dash of maple syrup. I personally love the taste of just the mashed berries with the chia seeds for the most natural sweetness.

🔄Substitutions/Variations

Add some fun flavors!

For extra protein add in a half a scoop of plant-based protein powder. You could use chocolate protein powder for a chocolate peanut butter flavor (or just regular cocoa powder if you don’t have protein powder). You can also add some vegan yogurt (such as soy) that is higher in protein. Hemp seeds are also high in protein.

For a little crunch on top add some granola, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, or pecans. You could also use crunchy peanut butter instead of creamy.

Add other fresh fruit such as blueberries or strawberries instead of raspberries.

Mix in some mini chocolate chips for some fun texture and extra sweetness.
