Overnight Pumpkin Spice Chia Oats | Vegan Breakfast Jar Food Prep Recipe

Get your breakfast game face on and let's get some overnight oats on the meal prep list. Organic rolled oats are highly nutritious with good ratios of protein, fat & carbs. Organic rolled oats are an excellent source of manganese and molybdenum and in addition are relatively low in calories at only 117 per serving.

Though true oats are naturally gluten free, cross contamination occurs throughout the manufacturing process so be sure to look for that GF label.

In addition, when seeking simply "organic rolled oats", one only avoids accidentally getting oatmeal which could be made from glutenous grains.  Many conventional oat products including many quick oats are made from grains other than oat which could be glutenous, again be sure to look for the Gluten Free logo on the package.

Easy peasy overnight oats are fun, tasty and easy to make. Also, we know how busy you get, so here's a tip.  Add these to your food prep and have them pre-made for a quick morning treat.
