You’re going to flip for these sweet and satisfying overnight oats. Just prep them the night before and you’ll wake up to a delicious breakfast in the a.m. I added hemp seeds to provide a dose of plant-based protein, fiber, heart-healthy fats, and zinc to boost immunity. If you prefer to enjoy your oats warm, simply make this version in the microwave (in 2 minutes!) by adding an extra ½ cup of milk or water. Grab your spoon and dig in.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 1 serving
  • ½ cup milk (skim, 1%, almond, soy or oat milk)
  • • ½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • • 1 to 2 tablespoons hemp seeds, chia seeds, or ground flax seeds
  • • ½ banana, thinly sliced or mashed
  • • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional)
  • • ½ cup sliced strawberries
  • • Dash of ground cinnamon (optional)

Place all ingredients in a container or small bowl and thoroughly mix. Tightly cover with a lid and stash in refrigerator overnight. In the morning, top with strawberry slices.

To make a warm version in real time, mix the oats, your choice of seeds (hemp, chia, or flax), banana, milk, plus ½ cup water (or extra milk) in bowl, cover with a paper towel and microwave for 2 to 3 minutes. Add in the vanilla extract, optional maple syrup and cinnamon and mix well. Top with strawberry slices and an extra sprinkle on ground cinnamon if desired.

Makes 1 serving.
