Cinnamon Toast Soaked Oats is the first overnight oats we ever made. We have a big-time obsession with cinnamon toast in our house. As a treat, I’ll spread vegan butter on freshly toasted bread and then sprinkle it with coconut sugar and cinnamon. I think we started doing that when the kids started asking for breakfast cereal. If they’re going to have something sugary in the morning, at least we can control the amount of sugar better when we’re adding it ourselves!
There’s just something deliciously comforting about cinnamon. And coconut sugar is the perfect pairing to enhance that cinnamon-y flavor. These Cinnamon Toast Soaked Oats are super creamy and ready to eat straight out the mason jar the next morning. They’re perfect for a satisfying breakfast, or a snack on the go. We love to have them around for those mid-morning hunger pains that strike around 10 am, too.
How to make these Cinnamon Toast Soaked Oats
Soaking oats has a similar effect as cooking when it comes to oats. The long soaking process helps to break down the phytic acid in the oats. If you’ve ever had a stomach ache after eating raw oats or oat flour, phytic acid might be the reason why. Not everyone has issues with digesting raw oats. But for those of us who do, eating a no-bake bar made with raw oats can be a painful snack to choose from. Soaking helps to neutralize this acid and make the healthy whole grain oats easier on our sensitive stomachs for easy digestion.
All you need to make Cinnamon Toast Soaked Oats are some rolled oats, plant-based milk, coconut sugar, and cinnamon. If you’re a fan of apple cider vinegar and have trouble digesting oats, you could add a tiny splash to the mix as well. Acid further helps to neutralize the phytic acid for increased digestibility.
Use a small container with an air-tight lid. I love to use small mason jars for this single-serving recipe. They’re a perfect size, and they’re a lot more fun to eat out of than my regular Pyrex containers. Add the ingredients to the container, give them a stir, and place the lid on. Pop them in the fridge overnight, and by morning you’re ready to dig into the creamiest, softest, most delicious Cinnamon Toast Soaked Oats.
