Vanilla Almond Overnight Oats

Vegan, gluten-free (with gf oats), oil-free

Serves 1


1/2 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup almond milk

2 tsp. chia seeds

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

1/8 tsp. almond extract

1-2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup


Combine all ingredients except oats in a small bowl or jar. Stir to combine.

Add oats, gently stir, and make sure they're all fully submerged.

Cover and place in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.

Enjoy as is or top with banana, berries, granola, nut butters, etc. before serving.


I use unsweetened plain almond milk for this recipe. Adjust the syrup as desired depending on how much sweetness you like (or if you're using a sweetened milk). You may find you need a little less vanilla if you're using a vanilla flavored milk.

The almond extract is strong so be sure to only use the 1/8 tsp. otherwise it can overpower.
