Cardamom Maple Overnight Oats – an easy, tasty breakfast recipe made with Runamok Maple Syrup.
Mornings around here can be hectic. I wake up at 5:30 am every day to do about 3 hours of work before heading to …well…..work. If it’s a green smoothie kind of day, I’ll usually have that while I’m working on the sofa. Otherwise, I’m typically grabbing my breakfast to go. I lug it all the way up to work with me, then eat it there around 9:30 or so.
Because I’m so focused and so productive in those wee hours of the morning, I don’t like to spend my energy making breakfast. It may sound silly, but I’ve found that I can get so much more done before work then I can after work. Then came the overnight oats obsession. I discovered Dana’s ridiculously delicious Peanut Butter Overnight Oats and just couldn’t get enough! I started having those oats 2-3 times per week and switching them up here and there, to avoid tiring from it.
Here’s the problem: I often find myself obsessing over one new favorite food, then I get tired of it and stop eating it all together. Don’t worry, oysters, that won’t happen with us. We’re too much in love, we’ll never let anything get between us. Oh, sorry, overnight oats – right. After weeks of those PB overnight oats, I asked myself why I hadn’t been making up my own oats recipe. So, I started experimenting. I’ve made jammy oats, super chia-y oats, and more. But this right here is my favorite one yet.
Cardamom Maple Overnight Oats
Let me say first that not all maple syrups are created equally. I say that because I’ve fallen in l o v e with Runamok’s maple syrup collection. They’re all about innovating how people are using maple syrup, and oh golly they sure have. We have a few of their syrups at home and we’ll never turn back now. The Cardamom Maple is divine and their Pecan Wood Smoked is unreal. You can smell the smoke as SOON as you open the bottle. It’s like a mystery, it’s that good.
For the oats:
1 cup vanilla almond milk
1 cup oats
1.5 tablespoons chia seeds
1.5 tablespoons cardamom-infused maple syrup (or maple syrup and cardamom spice)
Blueberries, goji berries, pomegranate arils, granola, coconut shreds.
1. Add all ingredients to a medium-sized bowl.
2. Mix until combined.
3. Refrigerate overnight.
4. Take out, stir once or twice, and add your toppings.
SO tasty, right? Well, I suppose at this point you haven’t tried the Cardamom Maple Overnight Oats just yet, but I hope you do! ps. This post was not sponsored by Runamok, I just love them that much! I was introduced to them when they became a client at my ‘day’ job and we started supporting their social media efforts.
