Chocolate Hazelnut Overnight Oats Ingredients:
Rolled Oats: These usually work best compared to quick-cooking or steel cut oats. If you have celiac or gluten-intolerance, use certified gluten-free oats.
Chia seeds: These absorb liquid, creating the creamy oatmeal consistency without cooking.
Non-dairy milk: Choose your fav, but unsweetened, unflavoured usually work best.
Vegan Nutella: Use my recipe for 3-ingredient homemade Nutella, or another Nutella or chocolate hazelnut spread.
Pure maple syrup: To add sweetness. Feel free to omit this!
For homemade Nutella: If you prefer not to make your own homemade Nutella, you can use store-bought Nutella or another chocolate-hazelnut spread. Keep in mind traditional Nutella is not vegan!
For maple syrup: Instead of pure maple syrup, you can use agave syrup for a vegan option or honey for a non-vegan option.
How to Store Overnight Oats:
Store overnight oats in an airtight container in the fridge. They last up to 3 days in the fridge but are best enjoyed after 24-48 hours. However, they are freezer friendly!
Now, if you prefer to eat overnight oats warm, you can heat them up in the morning. Using your microwave and in a microwave-safe dish, heat oats for 45-60 seconds. Or using the stovetop, heat overnight oats in a small saucepan over medium heat.
