This is the first overnight oats recipe in my new series of Dessert Overnight Oats. Berry Cobbler is a sweet and delicious way to start your day, who said you can’t have dessert for breakfast?
Overnights oats are the latest craze in easy, vegan, and whole food recipes. And I can definitely understand why. Who wouldn’t like something easy to make, good to eat, and super healthy? When I decided to venture down the overnight oats road, I wanted to do something a little different and also catch my kids attention. Being vegan, protein is always something we make sure we are getting enough of. Our newest protein packed love is hemp seeds. I really like the Hemp Hearts brand, they have a great texture and add so much nutrition to our meals! So I decided that in my series of overnight oats, I was definitely putting these in there. To catch my kids attention, I ventured out to make my very own Overnight Oats Dessert Series! Dessert number one, Berry Cobbler…enjoy!
- ½ cup fresh or thawed frozen berries chopped or mashed
- ¼ ripe banana mashed about 2 tablespoons
- 2 tablespoons date paste or other sweetener of choice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- ¼ cup raw shelled hemp seeds I use the Hemp Hearts brand
- ½ cup gluten free rolled oats or regular rolled oats
- 1- 1 ½ cups almond milk depending on how runny you like your oats (or other milk of choice)
- Put all ingredients in a mason jar (or other container) in the order listed. Close lid tightly and shake well. Store in the refrigerator until the next morning.
- You can purchase my Overnight Oats Jar to use with this recipe as well!
- Before eating, shake well again. Serve cold or warm, if serving warm take the lid off of the jar before warming in the microwave or pour the oats in a pot to warm on the stove. You can also add a little more milk when serving to give it a "soupier" feel.
- Instead of using the hemp seeds, you can sub more oats.
- You can also use the berries straight from the freezer but don’t expect them to mix well until the next morning.
