Say that title three times fast!
Recently, I discovered just how easy it is to make oat milk. This revelation has only intensified my adoration for oats.
Oats on oats on oats on oats. While it is only two forms of oats, adding oat milk to dry oats to make overnight oatmeal feels like oats gone wild, in the best possible way.
There are three key things about this recipe that I love:
1. If done right, you can create zero waste!
How? Buy your nuts, oats, and maca in the bulk section with a reusable bag. Purchase your blueberries (or other fruit) from a Farmer’s Market where they don’t come in a plastic container.
2. It’s cheap. Seriously!
Especially when bought in bulk, oats are incredibly inexpensive.
3. It has tons of health benefits!
Oats are full of essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fibers. Maca powder is a wonderful adaptogen that’s high in antioxidants and enhances one’s energy. Coconut Yogurt provides dairy-free cultures that are excellent for gut health.
Go oat crazy.

1. Combine all ingredients except nuts in a mason jar.

*There is a difference between raw maca and gelatinized maca.
-If you have a sensitive stomach choose gelatinized maca.
-Maca can be very powerful. If you have never tried it before, start with 1/2 teaspoon.
**I recommend using lightly salted nuts. If you don’t use lightly salted nuts, then add a pinch of sea salt.
