Waking up and knowing breakfast is already made is a great feeling! Making overnight oats is so simple and it’s especially great if you know you will have a busy morning the next day. It is also a great breakfast option for the little ones because it’s so delicious you just can’t pass it up 🙂 It seems like recipes that are sweet and have a slight “tarty” kick make them so amazing,almost like a perfect combination! I think that’s why I love this recipe to much!
I used pretty much everything organic I think the chia seeds were the only thing that were not, yet you can make this with whatever works for you. Organic is a better option but just do the best you can either way. The rolled oats were gluten free and I used coconut milk which makes this breakfast gluten free and dairy free. If needed you can always make adjustments based on your preferences or requirements. If you were curious as to were I purchased the organic coconut extract, and organic raw coconut butter I got them online from Azure Standard. They seem to have a lot of foods that are harder to find elsewhere. I’ve been seeing more organic food at local stores too but I am not sure if that’s the case for everyone. I go to the farmers market for fresh food and the other dried goods etc. I shop around.
Place all of the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix together
Add in the coconut butter
and extract, then mix together.
Place berries on top and pour the milk over everything
Mix everything together again and place in the fridge over night. In the morning just pull it out and enjoy. I ended up adding some more fresh berries before I dug in 🙂

- -1 T. Shredded Coconut
