Happy Red, White + Blue! Hope you have the day off to enjoy, picnic and firework.
We are out of yogurt, yet we have a lot of food in the fridge so I haven’t wanted to go to the store just for one thing. I was craving overnight oats last night so I made a yogurtless version – much like the vegan overnight oats that float around the blogworld. Mine wasn’t vegan because I used organic milk, but I upped the chia seed ratio and enjoyed this very much. It doesn’t have that doughy, sticky texture that I love so much with the yogurt version (I still prefer that), but the fluffy chia seeds were fun to eat and this still was delicious!
- 1/4 cup oats (because I knew I was going to top off with granola)
- 1 cup organic 2% milk
- 2 tbsp chia seeds (I normally use about 1/2-1 tbsp in my overnight oats)
- Pinch salt
- Splash vanilla
- 1 nectarine, diced
- TJ’s sunflower butter
On the side – some iced coffee! Making the overnight kind is so easy. I use 1/4 cup decaf grounds and about 20 ounces of water for 1 mug. Stir them together at night and put in fridge overnight. French press in the AM and you have cold brewed coffee!
