How to Make Sacred 7 Overnight Oats

How to Make Sacred 7 Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are one of the easiest ways to have a delicious, filling breakfast, especially if you have a busy morning. Even when you’re bone tired at midnight, you can still pour a few things together and let the refrigerator do its thing. If you love meal prep, these are a staple because they’re blank canvases.

The quick oats recipe below is made of simple ingredients that are endlessly customizable and can adapt with your tastes and the seasons. Use fresh berries in the summertime, apples in the fall, and pears in the winter. The key to overnight oats coming together is time in the refrigerator so the flavors meld together.

You can make your overnight oats in whatever container you like. Mason jars are usually used because you can measure as you go and cap it for the morning. You can use any vessel that travels well if you’re on the go and is big enough to handle your toppings in the morning.

Sacred 7 Overnight Oats Recipe (Vegan)

This recipe is for one serving, or one bowl. The prep time is about five minutes, but it should sit overnight or for at least six hours.


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats

  • 3/4 cup almond milk (or any plant-based milk of your choice)

  • 1 teaspoon Sacred 7 Mushroom Extract Powder

  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup (or sweetener of choice)

  • A pinch of salt

  • Mix-ins: Fresh fruits (raspberries, banana slices), dried fruit (apricots, raisins, prunes), nuts (pecans, almonds), seeds (pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds), coconut flakes, nut butter


Step 1: Combine the rolled oats, chia seeds, and the Sacred 7 Mushroom Extract Powder. Give these dry ingredients a quick mix to ensure the mushroom powder is evenly distributed.

Step 2: Pour in the almond milk, vanilla extract, and maple syrup (or your sweetener of choice). Add a pinch of salt to balance the flavors. Stir well until all the ingredients are fully combined.

Step 3: Once everything is mixed together, cover the jar or bowl with a lid or plastic wrap. Place it in the refrigerator overnight or for at least 6 hours.

Step 4 (Next morning): Before enjoying, give the oats a good stir. If the mixture seems too thick, you can add a little more milk to reach your desired consistency. Top with your choice of mix-ins if you have time.


You can also make steel cut oats on the stovetop if you prefer a more rich flavor as opposed to quick cooking. If making your oats on the stove, be sure to slightly undercook them so they don’t become too mushy when they meld with the other flavors in the refrigerator.

If adding protein powder or another type, you may need more liquid. You can always add more in the morning if it’s a little too dry. This recipe is dairy-free, but you can also use dairy milk as easily as you can use non-dairy milk like coconut milk or oat milk.

Nutritional benefits of mushrooms

Medicinal mushrooms, also known as adaptogens or functional mushrooms, aren’t hallucinogenic or psychoactive. They are rich in beta-glucans and polysaccharides, thanks to their extraction process, that our bodies don’t make on our own.

Each mushroom offers different benefits, but overall, mushrooms are filled with nutrition information. They’re low in calories, fat, sodium, and are even cholesterol-free and gluten-free. They also pack a huge antioxidant punch, supplying vitamins and minerals, like potassium and calcium, our body needs to function well.
