MACA MAPLE CINNAMON OVERNIGHT OATS

MACA MAPLE CINNAMON OVERNIGHT OATS

If you’re looking for a meal-prep friendly recipe, a healthy breakfast option, or just a vehicle for nut butter, you’re in the right place. I frequently go through phases where all I want to eat in the morning is overnight oats. They’re creamy, not overly sweet, and are equally filling and satisfying. Plus, since it’s incredibly easy to change up the flavor of overnight oats, it’s hard to get sick of them.

I created this version of the breakfast staple when I was following the low-FODMAP diet about a year ago, but they still make a regular appearance in my oats rotation. They’re loaded with spices, full of healthy fats, and easy to digest so that you can go about your day fueled and content. And, like every good breakfast recipe (in my opinion), they offer the perfect base for your favorite toppings.

Maple Maca Cinnamon Overnight Oats
Ingredients:
1/2 c. rolled oats (GF if necessary)
– 1 heaping T. chia seeds
– 2 tsp. hemp seeds
– 1 tsp. cinnamon
– 1/2 tsp. ginger
– 1 tsp. maca
– 1 T. unsweetened coconut flakes
– 1 T. raisins
– 1 T. pure maple syrup
– dash of vanilla
– 3/4 c. nut milk of choice
– Optional toppings: fresh berries, coconut flakes, nut butter

In a small bowl or mason jar, mix all ingredients together. Cover, and let sit overnight in the fridge. I topped these oats with raspberries and blueberries, a sprinkling of coconut flakes, and a big spoonful of 88 Acres pumpkin seed butter — which is a delightful option for those with nut allergies or anyone who needs to add some variety to their peanut/almond butter obsession.
