The Monday Make: Effortless Vegan Overnight Oats for a Practically Perfect in Every Way Day

Found yet another recipe in Angela Liddon’s, The Oh She Glows Cookbookthat not only looked great in the glass, but tasted delicious too.  The 1 C oats,  1 1/2 C almond milk, 1/4 C chia seeds, 1 large mashed banana, and 1/2 tsp cinnamon are mixed together the night before, and left to thicken in the fridge.


All that’s required in the a.m. is to stir it up, and layer in a glass for each person, first with the oat mixture, then some fresh berry medley, a layer of crunchy granola, hemp seeds, and drizzle on some pure maple syrup and possibly coconut flakes, then start all over again until you reach the top of the glass. This amount serves three, so our family doubled it to serve six. It looks stunning, and like you’ve gone to loads of work.  The whole family enjoyed this breakfast; a great one to put together quickly on a busy morning since the oats are already done, no cooking required.


And one such delightfully busy morning and afternoon out were spent with my youngest, first delivering my eldest to her science lab, where we read our own natural science book, Minn of the Mississippi together, then ambled slowly around the campus gardens, gleaning ideas for the home garden.

And second, in the afternoon we drove to a favourite quiet spot to picnic, continue our Minn turtle lesson, play our old fashioned Game of Graces, and take a wee walk over the bridge just for a different perspective from that side.


And didn’t we spot a new educational sign with the very turtle on it–a snapping turtle–that we’re studying in our Minn of the Mississippi.  How perfect.



From beginning to end, this day was impeccable.  One Mary Poppins would surely refer to as a practically perfect in every way day.

  1. Those oats look delicious! I have been soaking my oats overnight as well, but I love how you’ve made it even better in the morning with all the additions. I am going to try that next time. 🙂
