NO SUGAR ADDED BLUEBERRY ALMOND OVERNIGHT OATS
The pace of life is quite chaotic at the moment as well, and I’ve noticed that my diet has been ruined, So it’s time to begin meal planning. In addition to my brand new Monday Meal Prep series, I also decided to prepare my breakfast meals this week. I thoroughly enjoyed the Zero Sugar Added Apple Pie Overnight Oats I designed in the past. I had a few blueberries that I had frozen, so I thought of making a new flavor called Blueberry Almond, Overnight Oats.
CAN I USE NON-DAIRY MILK?
Any kind of dairy or non-dairy milk can be suitable for this recipe. Be aware of the sugar in non-dairy milk if you’re worried about the sugars added to the recipe.
IS CHIA REQUIRED?
I also added chia seeds into the Blueberry Almond Overnight Oats this time, purely because I’d got them in my pantry and wanted to make use of them. Although they add fiber and texture, overnight oats are cheaper with no chia. Suppose you want to skip the chia seeds; just up the number of oatmeal in each jar from 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup.
WHAT TYPE OF CONTAINERS SHOULD I USE FOR OVERNIGHT OATS?
There’s no need to make these Blueberry Almonds overnight Oats in Mason Jars. I chose mason jars purely because I’m using them. They’re beautiful, and my job is to make food appear beautiful. Any resealable container works perfectly
1 cup old-fashioned, rolled oats ($0.17)
1/4 cup chia seeds, optional* ($0.62)
1/2 cup chopped almonds ($0.87)
1/4 tsp nutmeg ($0.02)
1 1/3 cups of unsweetened applesauce ($0.88)
1 cup blueberries, whether fresh or frozen ($1.20)
2 cups of milk ($0.62)
1/2 teaspoon of almond extract ($0.14)
Each four container includes 1/4 cup of oats, one tablespoon of Chia seeds, 2 Tbsp chopped almonds, and a pinch of cinnamon.
In addition to the dry ingredients, add 1/3 cup blueberries and 1/4 cup applesauce in each container.
Incorporate the almond extract into the milk. Add 1/2 cup milk into each container. Mix the containers thoroughly to keep the chia seeds from becoming clumped. Cover the containers and chill for at least 8 hours or up to four days.
If you’re ready to eat it to eat, stir using a spoon, and then have a delicious meal!
