We’re all about simplifying this holiday season by focusing on what matters most...and that means cutting down on time in the kitchen and instead savoring the present with our loved ones!
To help you do just that, here’s a simple, festive overnight oats recipe that everyone in your home will enjoy.
It’s full of healthy fats, fiber, and prebiotics to support your gut bugs and satisfy your seasonal cravings. It’s gluten-free, and has a sweet and luscious flavor profile that just screams holiday cheer (hello, apple-maple-cinnamon-pecan goodness!).
The Perfect Holiday Overnight Oats
Prep time: 20 minutes
Raw Apple Compote
1 1/2 red skinned apples
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Cut the apples into smaller pieces, then combine the pieces in a blender with the lemon juice and cinnamon. Blend it all until the mixture is completely smooth. Store in a glass container in the refrigerator.
1 cup pecans
2 tablespoons maple syrup
Preheat your oven to 350℉. Chop the pecans slightly by hand or in a food processor and mix with the syrup. Pour the mixture onto a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 15 minutes (being sure to stir them occasionally so they don’t burn!). Let the mixture cool, then chop the nuts a little more until they form a delicious crumble. Store in a glass container for use the morning of.
1/8 cup chia seeds
3/4 cup rolled oats
1 1/2 cups almond milk (homemade is easy to do!)
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil
Melt the coconut oil in the microwave or on the stove, then mix it together with the chia seeds, rolled oats, almond milk, and maple syrup. Now, time to wait a bit! Let the mixture sit on your table for a half hour, giving it a little mix every now and then to help your chia seeds plump up and absorb the delicious flavors. Then store in the refrigerator to let the whole thing soak overnight. (Trust me—it’s worth the wait.)
How to build your fabulous oats: For each serving, start with a layer of compote, then a layer of pudding, and top it all with the pecan maple crumble.
Then, curl up with your breakfast parfait and enjoy your friends and family!
