Overnight Oats “Latte style”

By Joyce Jerome

Have your latte and breakfast in one!
Overnight oats “latte style” is a perfect breakfast with a healthy amount of caffeine (for you caffeine lovers). Whether your energy resource is coffee or matcha, these overnight oats are my favorite way to enjoy. The oats soak up all the richness of a strong cold brew or matcha and will let you enjoy the flavor on a whole new level. Typically, doubling this recipe makes it easier to enjoy throughout the week. It’s perfect to take on the go!

Why I love this now?

When spring comes around I begin to crave caffeine, become more active, and sometimes take on more than I can handle. If that sounds familiar, it’s because you are being mindful of your surroundings. It is your body’s natural reaction to the airy and light weather. A positive way of treating this feeling is to stay grounded. Which means taking a moment to stop, breath, and just be in the moment. Having a low glycemic hearty breakfast has helped me ground myself. It gives me the energy I need and helps me from running myself to thin.

Coffee Latte

1⁄4 Cup milk of choice (I use unsweetened almond milk) 1⁄4 Cup leftover coffee or cold brew
1⁄2 Cup quick cooking rolled oats

1 t. Vanilla
1 t. Local honey or sweetener of choice

  1. Place all ingredients in a mason jar or bowl
  2. Stir until combined
  3. Cover with lid and refrigerate overnight (or around 8 hours)

Matcha Latte

1⁄2 Cup milk of choice (I use unsweetened coconut milk) 1⁄2 t. Matcha powder
1 t. Vanilla
1 t. Local honey or sweetener of choice

1⁄2 Cup quick cooking rolled oats

  1. Place all ingredients in a mason jar or bowl and stir until there are no clumps of matcha
  2. Add in oats and stir till combined. Cover with lid and refrigerate overnight or around 8 hoursOvernight oats are completely versatile. You can add in just about anything you like. Try adding:

FRUIT and NUTS… anything seasonal that you like. YUM!

FLAX SEED….for an omega 3+6 and fiber boost
COLLAGEN….for hair, skin, nails and muscle recovery
PROTEIN POWDER…for a protein boost (good pre and post workout)

To mine, I like to add dried fruits and homemade granola for an extra crunch!
