Gingerbread Overnight Oats

Regular oatmeal is such a good breakfast, but overnight oats are better because you don’t have to cook them. I’ve made them before (link here) with great results so I wanted to make them for ginger week. I looked online for recipes and this one sounded really good (spoiler: it tasted good too). It has classic ginger bread flavours with ginger (obviously), cinnamon and molasses. It was very warming.

This oatmeal takes 5 minutes to put together, pop it in the fridge overnight and then it’s ready to eat in the morning. I dumped it out of my mason jar and topped it with some strawberries just to make it a little prettier. But normally, this would be the perfect breakfast on the go. The best part is that you feel full for hours because of the chia and flaxmeal. It’s a super healthy meal.

The only thing I changed for my oatmeal was using oat milk instead of almond, that’s just what I had on hand. Also, because unsweetened oat milk is slightly sweeter than unsweetened almond, I cut the amount of maple syrup in half. I tasted it before refrigerating and I liked the flavours.

If you’re going to make this recipe, I’ll say that it does look like a lot of liquid when you first mix everything together. But as it sits in the fridge, it thickens up because of the chia and flax. So don’t just add more oats right away, you’ll be surprised how much liquid they can soak up. You will love this oatmeal recipe though.
