I’m sharing an easy overnight oats recipe for breakfast on the go! We LOVE easy at our house. We stay busy during the week, so the best part about this recipe is you can eat it cold. That’s right! Two minutes of prep time the night before, and you’re good to go enjoying a nutritious, delicious meal! These oats are packed with fiber, protein, complex carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals.
Ingredients for Easy Overnight Oats Recipe
Old fashioned oats are a complex carbohydrate that is full of fiber. That means it keeps you full for a long time. Oats are filled with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants as well. They can help lower cholesterol levels and improve blood sugar levels.
Organic chia seeds contain fiber and nutrients. The one tablespoon this recipe calls for contains 3-4g of fiber depending on the brand, which gives you a jump start on the 25g/day goal for women. They also contain omega-3 fatty acids, which is extremely important for overall health.
These overnight oats come packed with protein from the Greek yogurt. If you top these oats with the recommend nut or nut butter, you have a balanced, complete meal of protein, carbohydrates, and fat!
