Almond, Coconut & Vanilla Latte Overnight Oats are worth getting out of bed for! They are filled with dreamy vanilla almond butter, toasted coconut and coffee; a breakfast that gets better with time!
I have always wanted to be one of those ‘coffee house’ people.
Pretty stereotypical, right? Creative peeps seems to flock to coffee houses. Fancy, strong cups of joe; free wi-fi and if you are lucky, oversized, plush couches. Just bring along that mac book, your thinking cap and a bottomless wallet for that venti double shot extra pump vanilla soy latte.
Being that I work from home and a previous barista during my college days, you would think I would spend hours in my local java joint. But for someone that gets easily distracted, those creative hot spots are a double edge sword. The atmosphere seems to get the wheels turning but with every shout out of a finished drink, creek of the door opening and whistle of the espresso milk frother, my attention darts to anywhere to my work.
Rinse. Repeat. Rinse. Repeat. Then to look down and I have a lousy, five words jotted down.
I have attempted the whole coffee house gig one too many times. I find my creativity flows best, in the morning, right after a big bowl of oatmeal. Hey, like these latte overnight oats!
It’s the best of both morning favorites: coffee and oatmeal. Plus, it’s made the evening before to take the stress of trying to decide what to have in those early hours when you are trying to run out the door or just plan hangry. I speak from experience with the latter…
Overnight oats are not new to this blog. You all proved that cheesecake overnight oats are a crowd favorite! And a close second is a bakery inspired treat, with a gooey cinnamon sugar swirl and all! So today we have a java spiked breakfast because I feel like these days, I need more than one energy boost! Oatmeal is mixed with almond milk, coffee, chia seeds, a touch of sweetener and protein powder if you wish. I love the little boost it provides and staying power. Once that is all mixed up, let it sit overnight for the oats to plump up and soak up that coffee goodness.
The next morning though is when the fun begins. The toppings! Dreamy, creamy almond butter, toasted coconut flakes, chocolate chips, fresh fruit…whatever your little heart desires! Go crazy. These oats will put a little pep in your step like you downed a venti double shot extra pump vanilla soy latte.
