Ingredients
  • ⅓ cup large flake oats
  • ⅔ cup skim milk or soy beverage
  • 1 Tbsp. chia seeds
  • ½ cup grated carrot (~1 medium carrot)
  • ¼ canned crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 Tbsp. raisins
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp. nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla extract
  • Sweetener to taste
  • Topping:
  • ½ Tbsp. shredded coconut, unsweetened
  • 1 Tbsp. walnut crumbs
Instructions
  1. Combine the first 11 ingredients into a 2 cup (16 oz) container (ie. plastic food container or Mason jar). TIP: To prevent unwanted lumps, I like to whisk the spices, sweetener and chia seeds into the milk before adding the other ingredients.
  2. Mix well. Place top on container and store in the refrigerator overnight (or for a minimum 3 hours).
  3. Give a quick stir and add a little extra milk or yogurt if needed.
  4. Add toppings and enjoy!
Notes
*Overnight oats will keep in the refrigerator for 3 - 5 days, though best eaten within the first 12 - 36 hours (depending on preferred texture).
