Good morning! Today, I wanted to share with you a simple yet delicious recipe that will make your mornings much easier and healthier. It’s my Simple Overnight Oats Meal Prep.
This recipe is perfect for those of us who are always on the go and don’t have much time to prepare breakfast. All you need to do is mix together rolled oats, milk (or a non-dairy alternative), and your choice of sweetener and toppings in a jar or container, and let it sit in the fridge overnight. When you wake up in the morning, your breakfast is ready to go!
Not only is this recipe convenient, but it’s also nutritious. Oats are high in fiber and protein, which will keep you full until lunchtime. Plus, you can customize your oats with a variety of toppings, such as fresh fruit, nuts, and seeds, to make them even more delicious and nutritious.
So why not give this recipe a try? It’s a simple and tasty way to start your day off on the right foot. Happy cooking!
Step one is to make your own nut milk and avoid the fillers and additives that are in store-bought nut milk. Don’t strain! Keep the fiber and add more flavor. Fiber is important because it slows digestion and keeps your insulin from spiking, essential for maintaining a healthy weight.
3 cups spring water + 1 cup organic nuts.
I typically use walnuts or pecans because they’re higher in brain-healthy fats. This time I’m using 1/2 cup walnuts and 1/2 cup pecans.
I either use organic thick-cut oats or organic steel-cut oats because I can’t do mushy food. It just depends on my mood. This time, it’s Bob’s Red Mill ExtraThick Cut Oats.
Add 1 cup of blended homemade nut milk to 1/2 cup oats. This isn’t going to be thick because I like to add chia, flax, hemp, and other seeds to my finished oats. If you like it thicker, just up the oats to 1/3 cup.
One of the best parts about this recipe is that you can customize it however you like! When you’re ready to eat, you can choose to add toppings or dress it up however you please. Personally, I like to use frozen blueberries as my topping of choice. I usually use about 1/2 cup of them and add them in right away so they have time to de-thaw.
This recipe makes enough for me to enjoy for three days, but you can easily stretch it out to last for six days by using half portions of the ingredients. After you make it, just pop it in the fridge until the next day and then it’s ready to enjoy! Trust me, it’s a delicious and satisfying breakfast option that will leave you feeling full and energized. 😋
