Overnight Spiced Oats with Figs and Walnuts (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Sharon Palmer

One of my favorite, healthy, plant-based, on-the-go breakfasts is overnight oats. I make them in a single serving mason jar the night before, then for breakfast I add my toppings, and it’s just grab and go. You can enjoy these Overnight Spiced Oats with Figs and Walnuts chilled, or heat them up for a comforting breakfast. You can even make up a few overnight oat containers all at once for multiple breakfasts during the week.

This easy version of overnight oats celebrates summer in all it’s glory, thanks to the decadence of ripe figs, the spicy sweetness of Chinese 5 spice, and staying power of walnuts and chia seeds and a touch of blackstrap molasses. If figs are out of season, you can substitute dried figs. Pure breakfast comfort!
