Very Nutty Oatmeal

This is another Overnight Oatmeal recipe. There are several others on this blog, and I love them because they are tasty, hearty, and nutritious, and really quick to make and are prepared in advance. The other recipe variations can be found by typing "overnight oatmeal" into the search bar on this blog (I don't want to link them all in this post as it would be too long). 
This recipe is especially hearty because it is high in protein and contains heart-healthy fats due to all of the tasty nuts and nut butters in the recipe. Of course the types of nuts can be changed as desired. This breakfast is a complete breakfast in a bowl and very filling - it got me through a rather tedious and demanding math exam this morning. 

Very Nutty Oatmeal
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 Tablespoon ground nuts (or flaxseed)
1 Tablespoon chopped walnuts
1 Tablespoon whole natural almonds
1 Tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut
1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder (optional)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
3/4 cup almond milk
2 Tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
1 Tablespoon natural smooth peanut butter
1 Tablespoon natural almond butter
In a jar or bowl with a lid, measure the first nine dry ingredients, then stir or shake to mix. Add the milk, applesauce, and peanut butter and mix well. Place in the refrigerator overnight, then heat or enjoy cold topped with the almond butter.
