Overnight Oats Recipe

Overnight Oats = The Easiest Weight-Loss Breakfast Ever

I always go to bed with the best intentions to wake up early, enjoy the morning, and fuel my body with a satisfying breakfast, but things don't always work out that way — did I mention I'm not much of a morning person? Luckily, I've found a recipe that requires about 30 seconds of preparation the night before and ensures that I get to fulfill at least one of these morning goals every day. Meet the easiest breakfast of all time: overnight oats. It does not get any better than mixing a few ingredients together before bed and grabbing a spoon when you're ready to eat a delicious breakfast.

High in protein and fiber, this whole-grain recipe will keep hunger at bay all morning long. Even better, this recipe supports healthy digestion and can even help you beat belly bloat. I've toyed around with a number of iterations of the basic recipe with slight changes, but this combination of ingredients including chia seeds and slivered almonds has become my go-to mix. Try it out for yourself tonight.

Notes

I'm a big fan of So Delicious's unsweetened coconut milk in this recipe, but any nut or cow's milk will do the job. Just be sure to stick with the 1:1 ratio.

I topped off this jar with blackberries, raspberries, a few slivered almonds, and a slight drizzle of maple syrup, but feel free to get creative with your favorites. This recipe is incredibly versatile.

Can honey substitute for maple syrup?

For those that aren't enamored with oatmeal, try this: Add a little egg white to the mixture in the morning and cook it like a pancake on your stove top. Add maple syrup on top and enjoy!!

what about soy milk instead of coconut or almond milk?

The oatmeal is uncooked but it is not the texture of cooked oatmeal. It's not mushy like precooked oatmeal would be. Its yum!

These are so good. I use almond milk for mine but now I want to try them with the coconut milk!
