Here’s a recipe from our much-beloved chef to jazz up your oats for the season! This was originally shared on December 11, 2012.
Easy Overnight Holiday Oats (for one — multiply as necessary)
1/3 cup oats
1 tablespoon buckwheat groats
1 packet of powdered stevia or your favorite sweetener
1 ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
A pinch of salt
1/3 cup pumpkin puree (can use raw shredded pumpkin)
1 cup of almond milk, or other vegan or raw milk
1 cup persimmon, or other seasonal fruit diced
1 tsp blackstrap molasses
Add all dry ingredients (oats through salt) to a jar or container with an airtight lid. Put the lid on and shake to combine.
Add wet ingredients, reapply the lid and shake to combine again. Refrigerate overnight. Eat it cold, or warm quickly, after topping it with chopped nuts, cacao nibs, coconut, dried cranberries, or whatever other tasty treats strike your fancy!
