We’ve heard it a million times: breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Compared to an extra 20 minutes of sleep, though, whipping up an omelet doesn’t seem like a huge priority. But thanks to this overnight oats recipe from Fit Foodie Finds you can have your breakfast and sleep in, too.
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup liquid (milk, almond milk, water, whatever you like!)
- Combine oats and liquid in a Tupperware container (or anything with a lid).
- Refrigerate overnight.
- Wake up and enjoy!
After getting the basics down, try incorporating different ingredients to make a variety of fun and healthy flavors. Here are some add-ons for three of our favorite recipes.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 tablespoons chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
Add the vanilla and honey to the oat mixture and let it chill while you sleep. In the morning, top it off with chocolate chips and peanut butter.
- 1½ tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1/2 tablespoon honey
- 4 large strawberries, sliced
- 1 teaspoon chocolate chips
Before refrigerating overnight, mix the cocoa powder and honey in with the oat blend. Then sprinkle on the strawberries and chocolate chips in the AM.
Peanut Butter & Jelly
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons all-natural strawberry preserves
- 4 large strawberries, diced
Stir the chia seeds and peanut butter into the oat concoction and pop it in the fridge before bed. Then, mix in the preserves and fresh strawberries just before eating.
Try all three of our favorite flavors or make up your own. Either way, your day is off to a sweet start.
