Overnight oats are a magical morning meal that fills you up with energy, tastes sweet, and, honestly, is just about as easy as making microwave oatmeal. Like the name implies, overnight oats need to be made the night before you eat them; letting them sit in the fridge overnight creates the creamy oatmeal texture we all love. Add in your favorite raw & unfiltered local varietal honey and you’ll never go back to microwave oatmeal again.
Note: You’ll want glass jars with lids or small bowls that you can cover with plastic wrap.
Overnight Oats with Honey Recipe
2 tbsp Local Hive New England Honey
2 tsp ground flax
2 cups rolled oats
3 cups unsweetened almond milk
4 tbsp almond butter
- Fill four small bowls or jars with ½ tsp ground flax, ½ cup oats, ¾ cup milk, and 1 tbsp almond butter each.
- Peel and mash one banana. Divide it into the four oat mixtures. Pour milk over the banana and oat mixture. Stir to combine.
- Refrigerate overnight: at least 8 hours.
- In the morning, serve cold, or warm each serving for 45 seconds in the microwave. (This is why you need to use a glass jar or bowl.) Slice the remaining banana and use it to top each serving, then drizzle Local Hive Honey on top. Enjoy!
