I’m one of those people that tends to eat the same breakfast over and over. Much to be expected, I then get very bored with eating that same breakfast, and begin making poor breakfast choices, or worse yet, not eat breakfast at all.
I’ve come to discover that having a few go-to healthy, easy breakfast options is the best way to keep me eating right first thing in the day. This Raspberry Almond Overnight Oats is one of my new favorites!
About this overnight oats recipe:
Flavor: This overnight oats recipe has a mild flavor. You’ll taste a hint of almond from the almond milk and almond slices. If you’d like a little more, add a drop or two of almond extract. Raspberries add a touch of sweetness and the flavor pairs well with the almond.
Texture: Overnight oats can be a little hard to get used to. Some love them…others don’t. The texture is not the same as oatmeal. It’s creamier and more “liquidy”. You can adjust the thickness by adding more milk or less oats. the chia seeds will also “plump”, thickening the mixture.
Method: Layer in a jar and pop into the fridge overnight. Super easy! No cooking, no baking. It works its magic while you sleep.
Are overnight oats healthy?
Overnight oats may not be the lowest calorie breakfast you can eat, but they are packed full of fiber and protein. They’ll fill you up and keep you going until lunchtime.
Watch the ingredients though. This recipe has a touch of honey, but if you find them loaded with added sugar…steer clear.
How to Make Overnight Oats
This easy raspberry almond overnight oats breakfast is loaded with everything that is good for you! It starts with old-fashioned oats, almond milk, chia seeds, a little Greek yogurt, and some honey for sweetness. I then mix this up in a jar, and let it refrigerate overnight.
When the morning comes I mix in some almonds for a little extra protein and crunch, and some beautiful, fresh raspberries. Not only do you have a healthy, ready-made breakfast, it will stay with you keeping you full all the way to lunch time!
How long are overnight oats good for?
Overnight oats will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days. This makes them perfect for making up at the beginning of the week and using for a breakfast on the go throughout the week.
This is such a delicious breakfast, and is versatile, too.
Mix in blueberries, strawberries or blackberries for a little variety to start your day.
Instead of honey, you can also add stevia, agave nectar or simple raw sugar for sweetener.
Add almond butter for extra protein and beneficial fat.
