A bacon sandwich generates 1.8 times more CO2e than overnight oats, and a full English breakfast generates 6.4 times more CO2e.

From Oh She Glows

Serves 4


  • 4 large ripe/spotty banana, mashed
  • 8 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • 3 cups almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (optional)


  1. In a small bowl, mash the banana until almost smooth. Now stir in the chia seeds and cinnamon until combined.
  2. Stir in the oats, almond milk, and vanilla (if using). Cover and refrigerate overnight, or a minimum of 2 hours.
  3. In the morning, stir the oat mixture to combine. If your Vegan Overnight Oats have a runny consistency even after they soak, simply stir in an additional 1 tablespoon chia seeds and place the mixture back in the fridge until it has thickened up. If the oat mixture is too thick, simply add a splash of milk and stir to combine
  4. Suggested toppings include granola, fresh fruit, coconut flakes, pure maple syrup, cinnamon, nuts and seeds and banana soft serve.
