Berry Compote with Overnight Oats
Recipe Type: Breakfast
For the Oats
  • 1.5 cups steel cut oats
  • 5 cups almond milk
  • ? tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
For the Berry Compote
  • 3 cups frozen mixed berries (I used a combo of blackberries and blueberries)
  • 5 tbsp all natural orange juice (If you prefer to squeeze your own like I do, it’ll take about 3 medium oranges).
  • 2½ tsp chia seeds
  1. Add the ingredients for the oats to a slow cooker, and stir to combine; secure the lid.
  2. Set the slow cooker to low and let the oats cook for 8 hours; stir well when done.
  3. To make the berry compote, heat berries and orange juice over medium heat in a small saucepan. Cook for 10-12 minutes (stirring occasionally) until the juice released from the berries has sweetened and reduced a bit.
  4. Remove from heat, and add to a storage bowl. Stir in chia seeds and refrigerate when cooled.
  5. In the morning, simply serve the berry compote over your oats, and enjoy! Alternatively, you can pop the compote in the microwave for a minute if you prefer not to eat it cold.
