January is almost wrapped up which always gets me thinking about whether or not I’m actually sticking to those resolutions I made for the new year (spoiler alert: nooooot really). I could definitely try harder at achieving many of them, but I have found that I am more likely to make changes and reach goals if I don’t have to turn my life upside down do it. Making small corrections here and there can make a big impact, especially when it comes to living a healthier lifestyle. (I mean, I would definitely know. I’ve recently started to order a medium milkshake instead of a large. #GOALS, ya know?)
So, today I am sharing a wonderful and down-right delicious recipe for Almond Butter and Jam Overnight Oats that will fill you up with lots of goodness, and is the EASIEST to make. This recipe is such a win because it is so easy, you likely have the ingredients around right now, and it’s gonna keep you on the right track with minimal work.
Along with working to create a new you in the new year and strive to live a better lifestyle, I love the idea of including a little more healthy stuff and a little less of the foods that aren’t working as hard to make me healthy. That is why I have loved incorporating Silk Almondmilk and Silk Creamer into my recipes in place of milk. Silk Almondmilk is the perfect addition to this oatmeal recipe with a mildly nutty taste and a calorie count that isn’t nutty at all. Plus it has absolutely no cholesterol and no saturated fat. That’s the power of plant-based nutrition!
Here is how you make these Almond Butter and Jam Overnight Oats:
- 1/2 cup steel cut oats
- 1/2 cup Silk Almondmilk
- 1 T almond butter (or nut butter of choice)
- 1 T jam of choice (I used a mixed berry chia jam)
- 2 tsp chia seeds (if desired)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Sliced almonds, berries & shredded coconut, and extra almond butter and jam for garnish
- Put all the ingredients in a jar 16 oz. jar and mix well.
- Cover and place in the fridge overnight. In the morning, you can eat cold or warm them up. Feel free to add more or almond butter or jam to taste.
- If desired, top oatmeal with a swirl of jam and almond butter as well as sliced almonds, berries & shredded coconut.
You can also make this recipe on the stove if you forgot to put them in the night before! Simply bring 2 cups of water to boil. Stir in 1/2 cup of steel cut oats and reduce heat to a simmer. Let simmer for about 20 minutes uncovered or until you have achieved the desired texture. Drain water and add in remaining ingredients.
Doesn’t it look delicious? It’s kind of a adult-nod to PB&J, just a little more grown up and packed with nutrients. There isn’t an easier way to have a healthy breakfast than by making overnight oats. Plus, this stuff fills you up and keeps you full all morning.
I love the crunch of almonds and coconut along with the sweetness of the berries, too. All of it brings the best kind of satisfaction. This is DEFINTELY not your grandma’s boring oatmeal. Unless your grandma makes really, really, REALLY good oatmeal. (Also, if she does, can you send me her recipe?)
Using Silk Almondmilk in this recipe is my favorite. I love the flavor and love that it is plant-based. I also love using Silk Creamers in my hot drinks and baking. Silk Creamers are dairy-free, lactose-free, gluten-free and cholesterol-free!
You can find Silk Almondmilks and Creamers in the refrigerated section (watch for their new packaging coming out in mid-late January) at Walmart along with all of the ingredients for this recipe!
What is your favorite way to eat oatmeal? I’d love to hear!
