If you haven't heard of overnights you might be living under an internet rock. Overnight oats are a super easy and customizable grab and go breakfast option. All of you need is a canister of quick oats, almond milk, and about 3 minutes to get the party started.
Once you've created your base (oats + milk) feel free to get creative. Popular add-in's are cinnamon, vanilla extract, fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, nuts, chia or flax seeds, and protein powder.
Rather than add fresh fruit, I decided to use a beautiful zucchini a member from the gym had shared with me from her garden. Turning overnight oats into a quick, easy, and incredibly delicious zucchini bread recipe.
For a single serving you'll need:
- About a 1/4 of a large zucchini - peeled, chopped, matchstick'd, or diced
- 1/2 cup of quick oats
- 1/2 cup of almond milk
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon of flax seeds (whole or ground)
- Optional raisins, almonds, walnuts, or pecans
- Optional chocolate chips
Word to the wise, make a double batch at the very least - I enjoyed this recipe combination a lot and plan to make another batch or two this week
