Easy Healthy Overnight Oats Recipes
Easy healthy overnight oats recipes – It only takes a few minutes to prepare this in the evening so that you can take your breakfast with you in the morning.
We use whole ingredients in these recipes such as nut butters, fruit, creamy vegetable yogurths, It tastes just like dessert in a jar, but for breakfast Let’s get started.
5 Easy Healthy Overnight Oats Recipes
First up: the peanut butter and jam version. This is an ode to my favorite breakfast as a kid, but this time we make it with whole ingredients. Add half a cup of old-fashioned rolled oat flakes to a jar along with a tablespoon of chia seeds, two tablespoons of peanut butter, we use one that is made of 100% roasted peanuts with no added extras.
one-fourth of a teaspoon of cinnamon powder and half a cup of vegetable milk of your choice. Stir until well mixed. Finally we add half a cup frozen fruits and stir until just mixed. If you stir too long, you crush the berries.
Ideally you put the jar in the fridge for at least two hours and if possible all night, so that it can thicken a little. But this is YouTube, so we’ve already gone through this step. You can eat this right here, straight from the jar, or take it with you. Do you have 1 or 2 extra minutes in the morning?
Then here are some ideas for toppings to give your jar that little bit more. For the optional toppings: a few heaped tablespoons of vegetable yogurth Here I used soy yogurth and some fruit of your choice. Here I chose some fresh berries, but you can also use frozen frozen berries if you want.
Finally: some toasted peanuts, ground beef, for some extra crunch. This recipe is bursting with fiber, both soluble and insoluble, so that you will feel satisfied for longer and better bowel movements.
If you are a fan of the combination of peanut butter and jam, then this is a good classic to start with. Chocolate is my weak place, so if I can make a healthy recipe with chocolate, gladly! This recipe reminds me of Ferrero Rochers with the hazelnut chocolate flavor.
Add half a cup of old-fashioned rolled oat flakes to a jar, a tablespoon of ground flaxseed, a good source of omega 3 fats, a tablespoon of cocoa or cocoa powder, an optional pinch of salt, that makes the chocolate taste more prominent, and then stir well, you don’t want the cocoa powder to clump when you add the liquid ingredients later.
Then add a tablespoon of hazelnut paste, for me this gives the nutella flavor to the recipe, but you can add any nut or seed paste. Add about half a cup of vegetable milk. Want to make it a bit more decadent, then add some dairy-free dark chocolate chips.
Stir well, put the lid on the jar and put it in the fridge. You can eat it in the morning. Do you have some extra time? Then add some yogurt, we used coconut yogurt, some fresh or stewed frozen fruits, like strawberries, which go well with the chocolate or add some nut butters
if you love it like me some hemp seeds Robin tasted this recipe and told me so it’s like eating dessert for breakfast. A win! If you are a chocolate fan, you are going to love this recipe.
For the next recipe we will do it a bit differently. Here we use couscous instead of oat flakes. Couscous is actually a type of pasta made from durum wheat and based on your massive request, this is a savory version of the otherwise sweet variety.
First, you add a fourth cup of couscous to a jar along with two tablespoons of tahini, a paste of sesame seeds, on our blog you will find a recipe on how to make tahini yourself.
You can find the link in the box below. To give the couscous its beautiful color, and its anti-inflammatory properties, we add a quarter of a teaspoon of turmeric powder. Add three quarters of a cup of vegetable milk, and about half a teaspoon of freshly squeezed orange juice.
Stir well, put the lid on the jar and put it in the fridge. Stir everything well the following morning. Even though the base of this recipe is savory, you can give it a sweet touch by adding pomegranate seeds, for example, one of my favorite fruits.
You can also add ground pistachios, toasted coconut flakes. We finished this recipe for presentation with some extra orange zest and mint leaves. This breakfast reminds me of those oriental desserts I ate as a child, thanks to the tahini, pomegranate and pistachios.
Ideal when you want to try something different, if you want a different breakfast, and if you don’t like too sweet breakfasts. Believe it or not, I used to be not a fan of overnight oats. But this is the recipe that changed everything and made me love the whole concept.
Add half a cup of rolled oat flakes to a jar, a tablespoon of ground flax seeds, chock-full of healthy fats and fiber, two tablespoons of almond paste, on the blog you will find a recipe on how to make it yourself, you will find the link in the box below, and a tablespoon of finely chopped non-dairy dark chocolate.
Add half a cup of vegetable milk of your choice, and stir well. (stirring noises) Let it thicken overnight. For the toppings we add some banana slices, or any other type of fruit of your choice.
I like raspberries, and for some crunch, I add chopped roasted almonds, and some chocolate chips, purely for presentation (laughs). This recipe is thick, creamy, decadent, I like this flavor. Highly recommended if you have not tried overnight oats before.
For the last recipe we combine oat flakes with tropical flavors. By now you know what to do: add half a cup of rolled oat flakes ready for a game. Add a tablespoon of chia seeds, for extra fiber.
Add about half a mango, cut into pieces, or you can also use three quarters of a cup of frozen mango. I add a tablespoon of almond paste, half a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract, half a cup of vegetable milk, coconut milk from brig works particularly well for this recipe.
Stir well, let it thicken overnight, and take it with you in the morning. If you have extra time, can you add some coconut yogurt, some fresh fruit, some toasted coconut flakes, and that’s it.
If you live in the Northern Hemisphere like us, it starts to get very cold. But with this breakfast you can imagine yourself in the tropics. It’s worth getting up for this breakfast.
