Vegan Neapolitan Overnight Oats

I have a delicious baked oatmeal recipe and a ton of recipes using oat flour on the blog, but can you believe I don’t have a single traditional oatmeal recipe? What’s wrong with me?? Considering I eat oatmeal pretty much every morning (the proof is in the Insta pudding), this needed to change ASAP.

Here’s my first official oatmeal recipe: Vegan Neapolitan Overnight Oats!?

I’m finally back from my ski trip in Colorado, which was so much more fun than I thought it would be. Can I just buy a vacation home now? It’s seriously gorgeous. And I actually don’t mind the cold that much, especially when I’m all bundled up like the Michelin Man.

Here’s a cute little pic of me and my #1 taste taster in Breckenridge! It really is a lovely town, and I highly recommend it?

During the trip I let myself eat whatever I wanted (of course always plant-based), which was actually a good idea because your body burns twice the amount of carbs at that altitude. Like what?!? Can I move there forever? Plus, I don’t think I’ve ever been on a vacation where I did so much physical exercise – and I’ve hiked down and up the Grand Canyon. Yah.

I lived off microwave oatmeal, hummus and veggie wraps, and ginnybakes and Earnest Eats bars during the day, but the night is where the party really started. It’s so fun traveling to places where there are more options for vegans (Louisiana, you need to step up your game).

I enjoyed black bean and sweet potato tacos, salsa and guac, falafel, hummus, and maybe one or four mimosas. I’m happy I let myself enjoy the trip without stressing too much about the food I was eating – that just sucks the fun out. When on vacation, indulge a little!

That being said, I AM excited to get back to a routine, go back to school this week, and keep living healthy! Of course a huge part of that is OATS.

Like I said, I eat oatmeal pretty much every day. I use oat flour in many of my baking adventures. I blend it into smoothies. If I could be best friends with a food, I would definitely choose oats.

Usually my oatmeal bowls are simply flavored with vanilla and maple syrup topped with some fruit and nuts, but I wanted to go big with this overnight oats recipe. Three flavors in one? I’m in!

To be honest, I never really was a fan of Neapolitan ice cream because I much preferred vanilla over chocolate and really didn’t like strawberry, which is weird because fruit is basically my whole existence. I guess I’d rather just have the real thing than something flavored like it. Anyways, I’m a fan of Neapolitan now as long as it’s in overnight oats form!

I’m pretty sure now I’m on a quest to recreate every popular ice cream flavor in a healthy oatmeal bowl. How cool would that be? Cookies ‘n cream, rocky road, chocolate chip cookie dough…..?. (PS: if you’re actually interested in that, leave a comment!)

Overnight oats are the best because you literally mix the ingredients, place in a jar, and let it sit overnight. That’s it! No cooking. Just one dish to clean. I can dig it.

I think it would be great to make a few of these overnight oats jars at the beginning of the week so you can have a grab-and-g0 breakfast every day!

If you try these Vegan Neapolitan Overnight Oats, be sure to let me know and post a picture on Instagram with #emilieeats. I love to see what you all make!
