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.

This recipe makes 1 serving
  • ½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ banana, thinly sliced or mashed

  • ½ cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional)
  • Dash of ground cinnamon (optional)



In a container with a lid, add the milk, oats, hemp seeds, banana, vanilla extract and optional maple syrup. Close lid and shake to mix well. Place in refrigerator overnight. In the morning, top with strawberry slices.

To make a warm version in real time, mix the oats, hemp seeds, 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.
