Salted Caramel Overnight Oats (no sugar added, vegan)

Why should you make this specific recipe for salted caramel overnight oats?

Here’s a better question: Do you want a buttery, pudding-like breakfast with a serving each of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, complete protein, and unbeatable satiety?

Salted caramel is making the rounds… so if you want to stay trendy, you gotta make these oats at least once this week. And these are┬áhealthy┬ásalted caramel oats, at least according to my definition. They are vegan and free of added sugars!

If so, add these dry ingredients to a 16 oz. jar: 

1/3 cup (30 g) rolled oats

3/4 cup (85 g) frozen cauliflower rice

1/2 scoop (15 g) vanilla or salted caramel protein powder

1/4 cup (40 g) diced prunes or dates

3 sugar-free caramels, unwrapped and chopped* (Okay, the “unwrapped” part was unnecessary, but apparently some folks are eating sandwich papers…)

Sea salt, a pinch or two of nutmeg, and optional extra sweetener

Once those ingredients are mixed, pour in the wet ingredients and stir as long as you want:

1/2 cup (120 g) high-protein plant-based milk of choice, such as pea or soy

4 tablespoons (60 g) Caramel nondairy creamer (Nutpods) OR a quick splash of vanilla, maple, and butter extracts

For a thinner consistency, add 1/4 cup of dairy-free yogurt OR butterscotch pudding (tee-hee.)

Nutrition Facts: 410 calories w/ caramels, 360 calories w/o. | 18g protein | 47g net carbohydrates (total carbs- fiber) | 13g fiber | 9.5g fat  

* I used an allulose-sweetened candy, but artificially-sweetened caramels will work in a pinch. It’s a small amount and your body is already filling up with whole foods and health-supporting stuff!

Also, WHY ARE DATES CROWNED AS THE KING FRUIT OF CARAMEL? Prunes are chewier, taste worlds more authentic, and they help support bone health. But, for those who are married to Medjools, I listed them as an option.

Make it your own way by leaving out or adding anything, but I can’t vouch for an uncanny salted caramel taste unless prepared as above. I usually use iodized salt, but they don’t impart the same flavor or mouthfeel as flakes:)
