Overnight oats are becoming a popular breakfast these days for a reason. It’s a great way to have your old-fashioned oats in the morning with some creative additions. Unknown to many, though, you can actually enjoy this classic breakfast without having to use dairy milk or other animal products. There are many milk alternatives to choose from. There’s soy, almond, cashew, coconut, hazelnut, and even rice milk! To make your overnight oats even more exciting, there are a number of toppings to use. You can top it with your favorite fruits (fresh or dried), nuts, seeds like chia or pumpkin, some sweet things, and spices. The possibilities are endless.
This recipe features the use of almond milk for your overnight oats. The nutty flavor and creamy texture of almond milk give your overnight oats a pleasant, interesting taste. This recipe uses peanut butter and berries, but feel free to change it up to your liking.
