I have never been a morning person. I usually like to take my mornings slow with a coffee followed by some yoga and then once I have decided I am awake I like to make myself breakfast. These slow mornings are rarities for me though, pretty much exclusive to weekends. During the week I have to be up early and out the door by 7:30 a.m. and I never like waking up to get my breakfast organized. That’s why these overnight oats are a serious life saver. I put all the ingredients together in the evening and in the morning both my boyfriend and I have a quick easy breakfast we can take as we are heading out the door. Its super easy and delicious.
Serves: 2 | Prep Time: 10 Mins
3/4 cup Rolled Oats
1 tbsp Chia Seeds
2 tbsp Maple Syrup
1/4 cup Mango (diced)
1/4 cup Pineapple (diced)
2 tbsp Coconut Flakes
1 cup Coconut milk (I like the boxed kind the best)
- In a medium bowl, add rolled oats, chia seeds, maple syrup, fruit, coconut flakes, and coconut milk together. Mix well.
- separate the mixture into 2 mason jars or containers of your choosing. Once they are evenly separated I like to push down the oats at the top so they are covered by the liquid. Add some extra chunks of mango and sprinkle on some coconut flakes. Cover with lid. Place oats in fridge to soak overnight.
- In the morning your oats will be ready to eat.
