This apple pecan overnight oat bowl is worth waking up for. Throw it together in 2 minutes before bed and voilà, breakfast is made. I like to wait until I'm serving to add in the apple. The servings are filling and you can squeeze 3 servings out of it if you like a lighter breakfast. I, however, could eat the whole thing in one sitting!
1 ½cupsold fashioned rolled oatsgluten free if desired
¼cuproughly chopped pecans
Zest of 1 orange
Juice of ½ orange
1 ½cupsdairy-free milkorganic soy or homemade nut milks make for the creamiest texture
1apple chopped or thinly sliced
In a medium container with a lid (or large bowl) mix together the oats, flax, raisins, pecans, orange zest and juice, cinnamon, and milk. Stir and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning add chopped apple and a little sprinkle of pecans, if desired, and enjoy!
I like to make this Bircher bowl with no added sugar but if you want to add a drizzle of maple syrup, feel free!
