3 Easy and Delicious Vegan Overnight Oats

3 Easy and Delicious Vegan Overnight Oats

Breakfast has always been a very special time in our home; our family only has so many meals shared together due to Martin’s hectic work schedule and my adventurous needs to eat lunch and dinner near the river with my sons (all packed into cute bento boxes). Because of this, we try to make breakfast as special as possible.

Waffles, tofu scrambles, pancakes, scones, muffins and so much more. The options are endless but one thing is for sure, we always come back to the amazing vegan overnight oats. There is nothing better than waking up and having breakfast already prepared in the refrigerator; especially as a parent!

I swear I can hear angels singing when I twist the top off those mason jars and simply hand them to my three hungry boys; it’s just about the best thing ever! If you find breakfast to be a big hassle or you constantly skip it due to a time crunch, I beg you to try out these recipes. I am sharing each one of our family favorites!
