Oatmeal Blend for Overnight Oats or Hot Oatmeal

Overnight oatmeal with raspberries and yogurt.

Mornings made easy!

Part of the whole grain family, oats are high in fiber, rich in nutrients and full of health benefits. If you are looking for a simple way to start your day, preparing this blend ahead of time makes busy mornings easier without skipping a nutritious breakfast. The added seeds (chia, flax and hemp) add Omega’s and round out the value of this delicious combo. Topped with your favourite vitamin C rich fruit, this is a truly healthy way to get your motor running!

  • Dairy free
  • Refined sugar free
  • Vegan/vegetarian
  • Cleanse program friendly


  • 8 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup flax seeds
  • 1 cup hemp hearts
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 – 4 tsp cinnamon (optional and dependant on your love of cinnamon!)


Make in a batch for convenience. Combine all ingredients and store in an air tight container for a quick and easy breakfast that is high in fiber, protein and omega 3. Prepare as either over night oats or hot oatmeal. Top with your favourite extras and add ins.

For Overnight Oats:

Add 1/2 cup of Blend to 1 cup of your liquid of choice. This could be dairy milk, non-dairy milk (almond, soy, rice, oat, hemp, cashew, etc.) or water in a sealed container or covered bowl and leave in the fridge over night. Eat cold or warm up and top with your favourite toppings. Can make more than one serving to leave in the fridge for a few mornings if desired.

Hot oatmeal:

Bring 1 cup of water to a boil in a saucepan, adding 1/2 cup Blend. Give a stir and cover on low for 10 – 12 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and oats are cooked. Consider a mid point stir to make sure it isn’t sticking to the bottom or cooking too quickly.

An option is to add half a grated apple and either chopped dates, raisins, currants or dried cranberries to the cooking oatmeal. The grated apple adds a delightful sweetness and flavour.

Additional add ins and toppings:

  • Bananas
  • Pears
  • Peaches
  • Srawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Other berries of choice
  • Dried fruits
  • Chopped dates
  • Ground nut and seed blends
  • Slivered almonds
  • Additional shredded coconut or hemp hearts
  • Milk of choice
