Since first making overnight oats I have tried a few more versions:
Sweet potato oats – The original recipe, but with 1/2 cup mashed sweet potato instead of the banana.
Topped with maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg and cacao nibs. It was like pumpkin pie for breakfast!
Oatmeal raisin cookie overnight oats – topped with raisins and a whole bunch of molasses.
All mixed up. It was very molasses-y! I thought the raisins were very nice as a mix in.
If you haven’t tried overnight oats yet, try ‘em! I am very sadly out of chia seeds and can’t wait to get more to have these oats again.
Unrelated, but also very good – homemade applesauce!
This was four apples, unpeeled, and four minced dried apricots, cooked down for about two hours with water and then mixed with ground cinnamon and ginger. So good! I was still feeling sick at the time and not able to eat whole fruit, so this was a great way to use up some apples I got from the CSA.
(By the way, I am feeling much better and well on my way to recovering from Bell’s Palsy. Thanks to everyone who wished me well!)
