Vegan Eggnog Overnight Oats
Use up leftover eggnog with this recipe for eggnog overnight oats -- an easy and healthy holiday inspired breakfast.
- 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
- 3/4 cup eggnog OR 1/2 cup eggnog + 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder optional
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- sprinkle of cinnamon
- freshly grated nutmeg for topping
- 1-2 Tablespoons pomegranate arils
Mix ingredients: Combine oats, eggnog, protein powder (if using), chia seeds and cinnamon in small container and seal with a lid.
Refrigerate: Place in the fridge overnight.
Serve: Bring out of the fridge in the morning and stir. You'll notice that the oats and protein powder soak up a lot of the liquid so you may want to add a little more eggnog or milk before serving. Top oats with pomegranate arils and a sprinkle of freshly grated nutmeg and enjoy.
eggnog – for the eggnog, you can use whatever type of eggnog you have on hand. I've made it with homemade dairy-free eggnog and store-bought vegan coconut milk eggnog.
vanilla protein powder – I like adding vanilla protein powder for a little extra protein. If you don't do protein powder you can leave this out or add in 1/4 cup yogurt for extra protein.
milk – no eggnog? No problem. Just use 3/4 cup of almond milk and add in 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of freshly ground nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon rum extract (optional).
