If you are a busy person, overnight oats are your new best friend. You can prepare a big batch of it one evening, and next few mornings you don’t need to worry about your breakfast. They are also great to take with you to eat while commuting or to enjoy as a mid-afternoon snack.
I usually prepare it when I know I’ll be in a hurry next morning, or when I know I want to sleep in next day, but still have a good breakfast. Also when we travel early in the morning, I want us to have a healthy, filling breakfast, so I prepare these overnight oats and store them in jars. In the morning we take it with us and eat in a train, bus or at the airport.
I love that the oats get soaked during the night, get creamy and all the flavors mix together.
This is our go-to recipe for overnight oats. It has all the good stuff in it. It beautifully combines healthy carbs with protein from Greek yogurt and good fats of coconut, and it’s naturally sweetened with coconut and blueberries. I like to put some of my homemade granola or some fresh fruits, like banana, figs or berries on top.
