What if my dates are really dry and hard? 

As a lover of dried dates I’ve noticed something- when you buy pre pitted dates they tend to be much more dry than unpitted dates. You can by unpitted dates and remove the seed right before making this recipe for softer dates. The softer ones are much easier to blend and taste better. 

Otherwise you can soak your dates for an hour before making this this recipe for homemade no bake protein cookies. I love soaking them in almond milk but you can use any liquid. Then simply drain them and tap with a paper towel a little bit.

How do I store Them

If you your vegan cookies them out in the open they will get hard and stale. You want them to stay a bit sticky and chewy like a granola bar. That’s why you need to seal them in a container with a lid or a large zip lock bag. You can also wrap in plastic wrap. Either way store the plant based cookies in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or counter top for 3 days. Wrap them extra tight and store them in the freezer up to 3 month and allow to thaw naturally.

Overnight Oats With Peaches And Chia Seeds 

Overnight Oats With Peaches And Chia Seeds 

About The Recipe

Are you looking for plant based overnight oatmeal recipe ideas? If so this is the one for you because it’s absolutely delicious and healthy for you too. Each ingredient contributes nutritional benefits and helps keep you full and satiated. This recipe is great for meal prep, meal planning, and family breakfast. Furthermore it’s affordable and the main ingredients have a long shelf life. 

What is the difference between overnight oatmeal and regular? 

The ingredients are the same but the “cooking” method is different. Essentially overnight oats are not cooked thus preserving their nutrients. Oatmeal will gradually soak up the liquid (water or milk) and take on the same texture than if it were boiled or microwaved. 

  • Overnight oats are soaked in liquid for 3 or more hours until they become soft and edible. 

What Ingredients do you need for Overnight Oats With Peaches And Chia Seeds? 

Plant based overnight oatmeal recipe ideas

  • 2 ripe peaches

What kind of oatmeal should I use?

  • Whole Oat Groats

Whole Oat Groats are the husked oat kernel. They contain the cereal germ, the bran and the endosperm of the grain. These take the longest to soak and may never become fully soft. 

  • Steel Cut Oats

Also known as Irish oats the groats used to make rolled oats are cut into 2 or 3 pieces each rather instead of flattened. This is what gives them their small, pin-like shape. Similar to whole oat groats – steel cut are too thick and chewer to be used for overnight oats. In fact they take a lot longer to even cook let alone soak. 

  • Rolled / Old-Fashioned Oats

Rolled oats AKA old fashioned oats are steamed and flattened with giant rollers in order to form large flakes. They take approximately 15 minutes to cook. These work great for overnight oats however they need to soak longer than 3 hours, 6 or more is best. 

  • Quick Oats

Quick oats AKA quick rolling it’s are are groats that have been chopped into multiple pieces. They are then steamed and flattened into thin flakes. They cook in about 5 minutes and soak very quickly for over night oats, they can be ready in less than 3 hours. That’s why these and instant oats are preferable for overnight oats. 

  • Instant Oats

Instant oats are even thinner than quick oats. They soak extremely fast and make for quick and simple overnight oats. The only thing to remember is the more processed the oat the less nutrients are retained. Instant oats can soak in as soon as 1 hour!
