Makes: 1 portion of overnight oats

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 12 hours (refrigeration time)

Total time: 12 hours and 15 minutes

The Ingredients

½ cup rolled old-fashioned oats (substitute steel cut oats if you prefer!)

2/3 cup milk of choice (I use regular non-fat milk)

1 ½ tablespoons finely chopped walnuts

1 ½ tablespoons grated carrot (use a microplane or cheese grater to grate carrots)

1 tablespoon sweetened coconut flakes

1 teaspoon real maple syrup (or more to taste)

¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ teaspoon cinnamon

Pinch of fresh grated nutmeg

Pinch of salt

1 tablespoon regular or golden raisins, optional

 

 

 

The Steps

For toasted coconut: Toast coconut flakes in a dry pan over medium heat for 3-5 minutes, tossing often, until desired “toastiness.”

To assemble: In a mason jar, bowl or mug, add all ingredients, starting with the oats. Stir together all ingredients.

To store: Cover tightly and place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. 12-24 hours is best! Overnight oats keep well in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Stir before enjoying. Add an extra splash of milk if needed!
