I had yoga this morning, which usually means I roll out of bed, go straight to class, and am starving by the time I get home. So last night, I thought ahead and made some overnight oats! If you’ve never had overnight oats, let me enlighten you…
Start with a cup of yogurt. Typically I go with greek yogurt. But for overnight oats, the thinner consistency of regular yogurt works better in my opinion.
Mix the yogurt with uncooked rolled oats. I used about 1/3 cup. Stir the oats in so they’re all coated with yogurt, cover it, and let it sit in the fridge overnight.
By morning you will have a creamy, chewy bowl of amazingness.
Then, just add your toppings of choice – I rolled with raspberries and slivered almonds for some crunch.
If you like yogurt and oats you will love this! The combo of the two also keeps me full for hours. Try it and let me know what you think!
Yogurt bowls are some of my go-to breakfasts. They’re filling, healthy, and there are endless possibilities for mix-ins! Todays bowl was a cup of nonfat plain Greek yogurt, banana, raspberries, cinnamon, a drizzle of agave nectar for sweetness, and a small spoon of peanut butter. Heaven in a bowl!
(Sorry the pic is a little blurry – I have to figure out the best settings/lighting to use for blog pics.)
Some of my other favorite yogurt bowl mix-ins:
- granola or other high-fiber cereal
- rolled oats
- basically any type of fruit- berries and bananas most frequently
- cocoa powder
- pumpkin pie spice
As far as yogurt goes, I almost always go Greek. I typically just get plain nonfat so I get the most natural flavors out of the mix-ins. But sometimes I’ll roll with non/low-fat pineapple, vanilla, raspberry, or pomegranate. And now that berry season is over 😦 I might start getting more flavors to make up for not having as much fresh fruit on hand.
What’s your favorite type of yogurt? Do you eat it plain or add mix-ins?
