Fall Overnight Oats 2 Ways: Gingerbread and Apple Cinnamon

Fall Overnight Oats 2 Ways: Gingerbread and Apple Cinnamon

Healthy breakfast you can prepare for up to 5 days ahead. In the morning, just grab a jar from the fridge, stir and enjoy.

Overnight oats isn't a new recipe but one that's great to revisit this time of year. Kids are back in school (double yay from this mom), vacation days are over, and sports activities are in full swing. In one word, it's real life chaos.

A jar of creamy oatmeal that tastes like gingerbread (with a hint of molasses and ginger), or an apple pie (bursting with cinnamon and nutmeg) is a great thing to have waiting for you when times are hectic.

Whatever style of overnight oats you choose, it pairs smoothly with Bio-K+ NEW coconut flavour. Made from fermented pea and hemp proteins it is a great dairy-free option (keeping these overnight oats 100% plant-based). Unlike pea and hemp protein powders, there is zero hint of chalkiness. Lightly sweet, the taste works amazingly well in this recipe; perfect for sneaking in your daily dose of probiotics.

Overnight oats are prepared ahead of time and can be refrigerated for up to 5 days.

Just place Bio-K+, almond milk, oats and spices in glass jars, screw on the lid tightly and shake, shake, shake. Before serving, stir and enjoy. Do not warm up this oatmeal because heat destroys the live probiotics.

You can adjust the consistency of the finished overnight oats (i.e. what you get the next morning) by adding extra milk for a thinner consistency. These recipes are very flexible. Add more or less maple syrup to taste, use any plant-based milk you prefer, or replace quick oats with old fashioned or steel cut oats for a chewier textured oatmeal.

The texture of Bio-K+ fermented pea and hemp probiotic's texture adds additional creaminess to oatmeal. Just make sure you shake the bottle well before adding to the recipe. Otherwise some of the liquid will be left at the bottom of the bottle (happened to me once because I ignored package’s instructions).

Enjoy!
