Quick And Easy Overnight Oats
Serves: 1
  • 1 cup of dried rolled oats
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 tbsp of ground flaxseed
  • A splash of unsweetened plant-based milk
  • 1 cup of berries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 small banana
  1. The night prior to consumption, mix the oats, flaxseed, and water in a microwave-safe bowl and set out to soak.
  2. The next morning, add a splash of plant-based milk, give the mixture a stir, and throw it in the microwave for 2-3 minutes, or until it has thickened up. To ensure that it cooks evenly, give it a quick stir if/when the sides start to boil up (keep an eye on it so it doesn't boil over the sides).
  3. Top with fresh berries (if you're using frozen berries, stir them in right away and put the whole thing back in the microwave for another minute) and sliced banana (or any other toppings you want).
The portions in the recipe can be halved or quartered for smaller portions, if desired.

Best enjoyed before a day of hiking while listening to The Clancy Brothers' "Will Ye Go, Lassie Go."
