Layered Overnight Oats (Vegan, Gluten & Refined Sugar Free) From Front

Overnight oats is one of my all time favorite breakfast and snacks to make. I love that you can vary it endlessly and that it’s both easy and quick to prepare. I’m really not a fan of preparing breakfast in the morning, I love waking up and just get going. No time to cook or prepare a complicated or time consuming breakfast in the morning. This overnight oats is made with chia seeds and rolled oats and made in three delicious and flavorful layers that make a wonderful combination together. You have a rich chocolate layer at the bottom, a creamy and nutty peanut butter layer in the middle and a sweeter vanilla layer at the top. I also love adding a fresh and a little sour taste to cut of the intense chocolate and peanut butter layers hence I added some vegan Greek style yogurt on top along with sliced bananas, mixed chopped nuts and coconut flakes. This overnight oats is really super delicious, intense in flavors yet still not too heavy or overwhelming. It is perfect to make if want to prepare your breakfast the day before of if you want to have a snack to grab whenever the hunger kicks in. This overnight oats is both vegan, gluten and refined sugar free and can be made low carb.

A few tips:

  • I like to prepare this overnight oats in separate bowls and then layer it when I know the texture is just as I like it after it has rested in the fridge for a few hours.
  • The chocolate and peanut butter layer is not sweetened at all, but if you prefer a sweeter overnight oats you can add some stevia drops or a little bit of fiber syrup or agave to those layers.
  • The vanilla layer is sweeter since it is made with stevia vanilla drops.
  • This overnight oats is made with both chia seeds and rolled oats. But you can also make it low carb by replacing each tablespoon of rolled oats with 1/2 tablespoon chia seeds.
  • You can also only use rolled oats and skip the chia seeds. Then replace each tablespoon of chia seeds with 1 1/2 tablespoon rolled oats.
  • I recommend you to store the overnight oats in the fridge for at least two hours.
