¼ Tsp Vanilla extract
Optional Dried/fresh/frozen fruit/nuts/seeds/maple syrup/honey

Dietitian Tips:

§  In the morning, stir the oat mixture to combine. If your oatmeal has a runny consistency even after they soak, simply stir in an additional 1 tablespoon chia seeds and place the mixture back in the fridge until it has thickened up. If the oat mixture is too thick, simply add a splash of milk and stir to combine.

§  This is already a vegetarian recipe. To make this recipe vegan, substitute milk with plain soy milk.
