Eggnog Overnight Oats (DF, GF, V)

Want to wake up to something that tastes like cozy, happy, dessert for breakfast?  Good, me to, keep reading.  I've been pouring a dash of Califia's almond milk eggnog in my coffee and the other day I realized it would be perfect to make overnight oats with.  I've never been a huge breakfast person but there are three things that get me excited for the first meal of the day; it needs to be quick, travel well, and taste like a treat.  These oats check all those boxes and add a dash of holiday cheer.  This recipe captures the flavor of eggnog, makes it easy to prep three servings at once, and is full of protein, fiber, and omega 3s.  I hope you enjoy them!

P.S.  These are dairy free, gluten free, refined sugar free, and vegan!

Makes 3 servings
You will need 3 air tight containers, I like using leftover jam jars/mason jars.

  • 1 1/3 cup gluten free oats
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder
  • 3 tbs chia seeds
  • 4 tsp flax seed meal
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • 2 cups eggnog almond milk (or eggnog of choice)
  • 3/4 cup plain unsweetened almond milk

Whisk together dry ingredients and set aside.  Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients.  Evenly divide into your three containers and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.  I like to prep mine on Sunday for the week ahead!
