Turbo-charge your day with an on-the-ready breakfast packed with stick to your ribs oats, nourishing chia seeds and warming spices. Make ahead in jars for individual portions and convenience. Devour Overnight Turmeric Chia Oats warm or chilled. Vegan + GF.
In an eight oz (226g) or 16 oz (453g) lidded heat proof jar (I use canning jars), add the oats, chia seeds, turmeric, cinnamon, cardamom** (see notes below), milk and maple syrup. Add just a little maple syrup then adjust to taste before serving (sweetness can be such a personal thing.. add more or less, whatever you want! Additionally, nut milks have varying degrees of sweetness. Take this into account when adding maple syrup ). Place the lid on the jar and shake the jar vigorously to incorporate the ingredients. Let the jar rest for a few minutes and give it a good shake again to prevent clumping.
Store in the refrigerator and eat within three days. When you're ready to serve, enjoy chilled straight from the jar with desired toppings. Or, to warm the chia oats, bring a small pot of water to a low simmer. Turn to low and place the heatproof jar in the water to gently warm the chia oats, stirring occassionally for about five minutes. The water should come up to at least 1/2 way on the jar. Top with desired goodies.
*I use homemade cashew milk, diluted with 1/2 water.
**Spices can be adjusted to taste! If you prefer more cinnamon, go for it!
