With just two weeks left before my wedding, I have even more motivation to lose a stubborn 5lbs. When I’m trying to lose weight, oatmeal is always my go to because of how filling it is. I fell in love with overnight oats because as a nurse I needed food thats quick and portable. Overnight oats can be prepared the night before and its ready to go when I am in the morning.
Here is my recipe for my favorite type of overnight oats:
- 1/3 Cup of Rolled Oats or Old-fashioned oat
- 1/3 Cup of Unsweetened Almond Milk
- ½ Cup of Non-fat Greek Yogurt
- 1 tsp Honey
- Dash of Nutmeg
- Dash of Cinnamon
- ½ Small Apple Diced
There are so many variations to overnight oats but this one is truly my favorite! To create this dish, layer the uncooked oats, almond milk, Greek yogurt, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, and apples in a mason jar or your cutest bowl. Pop it in the fridge for the night and take it out in the morning. You can sub the apples for your favorite fruit like pineapple, cherries, or blueberries. You add peanut butter or chia seeds. You can even add peanut butter and sub the apples for banana. So many to choose from! Rotate the overnight oats with other fruits for variety. Make five at a time for a quick on the go breakfast for girl boss!
