Mint Chocolate Chip Vegan Overnight Oats

Top o’ the day to ya! No, I don’t normally speak like this, I’m just trying to get into the Irish spirit :)

I’ve never felt many ties to celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. I blame it on the fact that I don’t enjoy beer, nor do I have an ounce of Irish blood in me. What I do get excited about, however, is green food. Kale, zucchini, broccoli, basil, mint chocolate chip ice cream; you name it, I’ll devour it.

Mint Chocolate Chip Vegan overnight Oats- hello, veggy! I’ll eat green any time of the day. I credit Angela for helping me overcome this fear with the prospect trying Green Monsters for breakfast. Still, I do prefer natural food colouring, which I was able to do with the help of spirulina! Don’t let the name of this recipe deceive you; while it may sound like dessert, it totally qualifies as a healthy vegan breakfast. Chia seeds add protein and healthy fats, the oats give you whole-grain staying power, and the liquid sweetener is totally optional (the banana and chocolate were enough for my taste buds). The spirulina only serves as colouring; don’t worry if you have none on hand.

  1. The boyfriend has an Irish background, so I have to at least acknowledge the holiday ;-) I don’t drink beer at all so the green beer thing is kind of wasted on me, but that’s ok. Apparently I’m going bar hopping this year, which will be interesting, to say the least.

  2. 1) These pictures are STUNNING! You are doing amazing and I’m so proud!!!!! 2) I legit just clicked the “Queen of Green” link thinking that that was a blog name and someone else was hosting a link-up and you cheated on me with another bloggers green link-up LOL. That’s embarrassing…btw I think you just came up with an awesome blog name. I say you buy the domain then advertise and make millions when someone wants to buy it from you. Okay sorry I just read one of Curt’s entrepreneurship books so I may be a little business crazy right now haha. Anddddd rant done.

    Feed me these now.

  3. I love chocolate and mint together so I am all over this recipe!

    I always enjoyed celebrating St. Patrick’s Day when I was in uni, but I think this year it will be just like any other day for me. Ah well, at least I have all those memories from my youth. ;)

  4. Yum! This looks like a great way to start the day. I can’t say I have a favorite St. Patrick’s Day recipe. I am not Irish and never really celebrated except for with green beer in college!

  5. I am not a big St Paddy’s Day either- and it wwas made even worse when I lived in Ireland and I HATED this holiday more than anything. Drunk tourists everywhere all up in your personal space. GAH. I will be out this weekend but for entirely unrelaed adventures!

    Also, looks delicious and the pictures are awesome!! Can I ask you- what program do you use to add text to them?

  6. Come on, ANYONE can be Irish on St. Patrick’s Day! I love the idea of spirulina in overnight oats – have never tried it, but it looks delicious!

  8. I tested a recipe on overnight savory meal and it was pretty good! Now that’s a yummy looking green oats! I noticed that some used spinach for the green coloring, but spirulina sounds like a good idea! Happy Paddy’s Day! Congrats to the giveaway winner!

  9. Yum, yum, yum! I totally forgot it was St. Patties day today! :( Check my FB and you’ll see why…waaahhh :( That’s okay, maybe I’ll make this yummy oat recipe to cheer me up and get me in the green mood, hehe.

  10. This looks so good! Couldn’t think of a better way to start the day.
