About The Recipe

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?

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!

  • 3 cups cooked sweet potato without skin
  • 1/3 cup vegan butter – room temp 
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon 
  • 4 tbsp corn starch 
  • 1 cup sugar 
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

  • 1 tsp baking powder 
  • 1 tsp baking soda 
  • 1 tsp agar powder (optional but helps the pie hold shape better)

What Is Agar Gelatin?

You might be wondering what is agar powder? This optional ingredient is a great egg replacement for vegan cakes and pies. It is like a vegan jello or gelatin that comes from seaweed but has no smell or flavor. You can leave this ingredient out or use 1/2 a banana, flax egg, or egg replacement of your choice

How do you make the filling for this easy sweet potato pie vegan dessert?

Boil the sweet potatoes
Boil the sweet potatoes

Boil 3-4 large sweet potatoes in a big pot of water for 40-50 minutes until they are fully cooked. Drain them from the water and allow them to cook down before removing the skin. Mix the cooked sweet potato with the rest of the filling ingredients and beat, whisk, or purée until thoroughly smooth and combined. Pour the batter on top of the crust in the pie pan and bake at 375 degrees F for 45-50 minutes.

How do you make the coconut whipped cream? Gather your ingredients: 1 can of full fat coconut milk, 1 cup powdered sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Make sure the coconut milk is fully chilled in the refrigerator over night. It also helps to chill the beater sticks and the mixing bowl. Scoop the coconut cream from the top of the can into the mixing bowl and beat with the powdered sugar and vanilla until it becomes fluffy.

Ingredients

For The Crust

  • 1.5 Cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 7 Tbsp vegan butter room temp
  • 1/2 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar

For The Filling

  • 3 Cups cooked sweet potato without skin
  • 1/3 Cup vegan butter
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 4 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 Tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tsp baking soda
  • 1 Tsp agar powder optional but helpful as an egg replacement
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 Tsp salt
  • 1/2 Tbsp vanilla extract

For The Whipped Cream

  • 1 Cup coconut milk full fat, from the can
  • 1 Cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Start by boiling 3-4 large sweet potatoes for 40 minutes until they are thoroughly cooked then drain from the water and allow them to cool off so you can remove the skin and measure out 3 cups 

  2. Make the crust by blending your graham crackers (about 8 large ones) into crumble then blend in 7 tbsp room temp vegan butter followed by 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract and 3 tbsp brown sugar 

  3. Scoop it into a standard greased cake pan and press it down into the bottom to form the crust and set it aside

  4. Combine the 3 cups cooked sweet potatoes with 1/3 cup butter – (room temp), 1 tbsp cinnamon, 4 tbsp corn starch, 1 cup sugar, 1 tbsp maple syrup, 1/2 tsp salt, baking soda, baking powder, 1 tsp agar powder, and 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract 

  5. Whisk the ingredients vigorously until thoroughly combined- if you don’t like lumps you can use a soup purée to smooth it out even more or even blend or beat 

  6. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F 

  7. Pour the pie batter on top of the graham cracker crust in the cake pan 

  8. Bake for 45 -50 minutes then set aside to cool 

  9. Use a fresh mixing bowl to beat the coconut milk with the vanilla and powdered sugar until it becomes fluffy (if the cream is not properly cold from the refrigerator it will not fluff up, it also helps to store the beater sticks in the freezer for 20 minutes ahead of time as well) 

  10. Allow the pie to cook down before serving with fresh whipped cream !
