This Maple Sugar Overnight Oats is an incredibly effortless yet healthy make-ahead breakfast for your busy mornings! Vegan, Allergy-friendly

As a food blogger and busy mom, I’m always looking for recipes that will make our days run a little smoother, especially in the mornings when I’m sending off 3 kids to 3 different schools at 3 different times.  Geesh, it can get crazy but I know I’m not alone out there!    So,  if I can find things that help our family, hopefully it will help yours as well, which is why today, I have an incredibly easy, make-ahead, grab-n-go, healthy breakfast for you – – – Maple Sugar Overnight Oats.

I’m sure you’ve seen overnight oats pop up on Pinterest or as you’re scrolling through Instagram…but let’s just say for a second that you have no idea what this is.  Overnight Oats are simply mason jars filled with oats, milk (dairy-free for us) & your choice of flavoring that’s mixed together then refrigerated overnight.  No cooking or baking needed, but by morning, your oats will have become delicious, plump oats after absorbing all the liquid and flavor.  Easy peasy, right?

Because my kiddos are picky with their breakfast (smoothies, oatmeal and SunButter toast is on the rotation), they typically don’t reach for refrigerated oats so I wanted to create a recipe that would tempt them – – enter pure MAPLE SYRUP!

Maple syrup has benefits

Not only does maple syrup add the perfect amount of sweetness, it also adds numerous antioxidants and minerals, like zinc, manganese, calcium, iron & potassium.   It is also lower on the glycemic index, fights inflammation due to its antioxidant support and overall is a healthier alternative to artificial sweeteners.  No wonder it has been used as a healing sweetener throughout history….just be sure to select pure, darker, grade B maple syrup for higher nutrient support.

More Delicious Ingredients

Oats: Without this key ingredient, this breakfast would just be syrupy milk!  Rolled oats (gluten-free for us) are our “go-to” as they retain texture and provide more flavor than traditional old-fashioned oats.  You can find rolled oats in these recipes too: Blueberry Lemon Snack Cake {with coconut} &  Triple Berry SunButter Bars.

Dairy-Free Milk: I’ve used a lot of different types of DF milk but lately, we’ve all really been loving Good Karma’s Flaxmilk.  What I love about it, is that is has neutral flavor with a real creamy consistency which is hard to find.  Also, with several different food allergies in the home, it just is a smart option for us. Feel free to use the milk or your choice or give this one a try & let me know what you think. You could also use water, but the results wouldn’t be nearly the same.

Sweeteners: In addition to the maple syrup, this recipe calls for a little bit of brown sugar as well.  Our family likes to use an organic, vegan brown sugar by Wholesome because they are also allergy-friendly, gluten-free & fair trade certified.

Cinnamon & Spice: A little vanilla extract & a dash of cinnamon always do wonders to a recipe.  I love how the addition of those 2 ingredients turns this breakfast into dessert mode.

That’s it!  That is all you need to make these Maple Sugar Overnight Oats.  Feel free to top it off with an extra drizzle of syrup, some fresh berries and handful of vegan chocolate chips if you want to go all out (which I did of course!).

    I’ve been wanting to get into Overnight Oats more. The first time I tried them I didn’t flavor them right apparently…lol…they were pretty gross. But I think it’s all in the flavoring. I just have to try again! These look awesome!

      Hey Jennifer, yes Overnight Oats can be a hit or a miss depending on how you flavor it up. This is one recipe that even my kiddos enjoy, which speaks a ton! Hope you enjoy them this time around. 🙂

    Raw oatmeal has always underwhelmed me! Does this work as well if you pre-toast the rolled oars? This recipe is sooo simple I won’t mind taking the extra step, if it adds to the flavor. Thanks

      Hey Richard, I love the flavor that toasted oats bring to a recipe although I haven’t tried it in these overnight oats. But I am with you, it’s typically not my “go-to” breakfast, however, there is just something about this combo that had me wanting more. Let me know if you try the toasted oat method…I’d love to hear how it works for you.

    Sorry if this is a dumb question but, do you eat them cold? I’m thinking my kids will want them warm and I’m wondering if microwaving them will “over cook” them.

      Not a dumb question at all! I have a child that wants theirs warm and I microwave it for them without any mushiness factor setting it. I think as long as you watch the microwave, you’ll be fine. Let me know what they think.

    I love the simplicity of this breakfast Nicole – definitely a sweet treat for the a.m., but still hearty enough to sustain!

      Thanks Alisa. These oats do fill you up until lunch (or later).
