I’ve finally given in to trying overnight oats, and may have found my new favorite breakfast food. Have you tried them? It’s seriously as amazing as you’ve heard. What’s better than adding a few ingredients to a jar or bowl, letting it sit overnight, and waking up to a delicious ready to go breakfast. Plus there’s endless mix-and-match possibilities; add as many or as little ingredients as you’d like for a variety of flavor options. The first overnights oats recipe ever I’m sharing here on the blog is this Apricot Almond Butter Overnight Oats.

Overnight oats can be made in large batches and are ready to go in the morning, saving you time. It’s can be as nutrient rich as you want, based the ingredients as you add to it, with plenty of protein and fiber. General ingredients you can add are milk (including regular, almond or soy milk), fresh or dried fruits, seasonings, nuts and seeds.

For this vegan Apricot Almond Butter Overnight Oats I’ve used only 5 ingredients. They’re some of my favorite flavors and meld together into a filling breakfast that literally tastes like dessert, but is oh so good for you. Start with vanilla almond milk and stir in almond butter until combined, then add overnight oats, dried apricots and fresh (ripe) bananas. It has perfect texture that blends with chewy bits of apricots. The almond milk is slightly sweet and ripe bananas top off this sweet breakfast treat.

Overnight oats ratio of oats to water

You want a 1:1 ratio of oats to liquid. So if you have 1 cup of oats, add 1 cup of almond milk for example. You can add any mix-ins and it won’t change the ratio much. For this recipe I used slightly less oats since I like mine with a bit of liquid leftover, plus the dried apricots soak up some liquid. Experiment and find your favorite ratio.
