The Pretty Dish: Maple Raspberry Overnight Oats

I have been following the How Sweet Eats blog for quite some time, so when Jessica told her followers that she would be releasing The Pretty Dish cookbook, I knew I had to have it! This cookbook contains so many awesome recipes from breakfast, to dinners, to appetizers, to DIY beauty! You can order your copy of The Pretty Dish HERE.

I’ve been trying to eat healthier and I’ve always heard great things about overnight oatmeal, so when I saw this recipe; I was so excited to try it! It was super simple and so delicious! This recipe makes 2 servings, but is easily multiplied.

You will need:

  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup milk (I used almond milk)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup, plus a little extra for drizzling
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups fresh raspberries, divided
  • 1/4 cup toasted sliced almonds

Instructions:

The night before, in a bowl or jar (I used a small mason jar), stir together the oats, milk, 1 tablespoon of the maple syrup, the chia seeds, and vanilla extract until combined. Put it in the refrigerator, and let it sit overnight.

The next morning, mash 3/4 cups of the raspberries with the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of maple syrup. Spoon the mashed raspberries evenly into 2 jars (or bowls… whatever you choose to eat it out of). Scoop the overnight oats into both jars on top of the mashed raspberries. If you wan’t an even creamier consistency, add some extra milk. Add the whole raspberries, some almonds on top, and another drizzle of maple syrup if you want. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
