How do you eat overnight oats?
I always eat them cold, because it’s usually Summertime when I make them. But you could also heat overnight oats in the microwave, for 45-60 seconds.
And you can also add your favorite toppings afterward. Maybe an extra drizzle of peanut butter or banana slices.
Are overnight oats healthy?
Oats are a super healthy breakfast! Here are the reasons why I love this particular recipe:
- High protein: This jar of oats has 22 grams of protein!
- Heart healthy: Old-fashioned oats are a whole grain, which are high in fiber and can help lower cholesterol. If you’re gluten-free, make sure you use certified gluten-free oats.
- Healthy fats: The chia seeds and peanut butter help keep you full much longer!
- High in nutrients: All the great vitamins you get from the banana and other ingredients make this a nutritious breakfast and help you get in what you need in a day!
- Rolled oats (Quick oats and steel cut oats don’t work as well)
- Greek yogurt
- Chia seeds
- Ripe banana
- Pure maple syrup
- Vanilla extract
- Creamy peanut butter- I use natural peanut butter
- Milk: Use your favorite non-dairy milk like almond milk, cashew milk, oat milk, or soy milk.
- Yogurt: Use a non-dairy yogurt if needed!
- Nut butter: You can use almond butter, cashew butter, or other types of nut butter instead.
- Flax seeds- For extra healthy fats
- Chocolate chips
How to make
In a Mason jar, combine all of the ingredients. Place the lid on top and place in the fridge overnight, or at least 4 hours.
The next morning, remove the lid and give it a good stir, and serve with your favorite toppings. Add an extra splash of milk if the oatmeal is too thick.
