Overnight Oats Recipes

Preparation:

3.) Spread the raspberry puree on the overnight oats, close the jar and let the mixture infuse overnight.

 

4.) Sprinkle with the pistachios before serving and garnish with fresh raspberries if you like.

 

Prepare vegan overnight oats.

As you have probably already seen, we have given a vegan alternative for most animal-based ingredients. You only have to be careful with the honey because it is not vegan and must be replaced with another sweetener.

 

Otherwise, overnight oats are perfect for a vegan diet.

 

Since too little protein is often consumed with a purely plant-based diet, we recommend that you always use soy products. Almond yoghurt and other non-animal alternatives contain little or no protein. The same applies to milk substitutes and alternatives.

 

 

Containers and jars for overnight oats

You can use a large screw-top jar as a container for the cheapest option. Empty apple sauce jars, for example, are ideal for this.

 

However, if you make overnight oats frequently, it’s worth using a more professional container, as screw-top jars wear out very quickly and leak. The latter can cause a lot of trouble, especially on the go, if breakfast suddenly runs out.

 

How about, for example, this practical overnight oats glass with an integrated spoon*?

 

Otherwise, the 500-millilitre lunch pot* is also a perfect container for overnight oats. It currently has 4.8 out of 5 stars from over 22,000 reviews, which speaks for itself.
