Healthy and nutritious overnight oats that makes for a great breakfast or snack!
This 7-ingredient recipe comes together in minutes and soaks in the fridge overnight.
Allowing the oats to soak, will make it much easier to digest them so that your tummy will feel happy and healthy!
Oat are packed with nutrients and fiber and will keep you fuller longer.
I love adding ground flax seeds for an additional nutritional boost. Flax seeds are loaded with nutrients, omega-3 fats, contains high quality protein and can lower blood pressure.
Be sure to add ground and not whole flax seeds as the body is unable to absorb the nutrients of whole flax seeds.
Besides the fact that cinnamon tastes delicious, I like adding it to my oats for health benefits.
Cinnamon has anti-inflammatory properties, can lower blood sugar levels, and can help lower bad cholesterol.
This recipe is inspired by Bircher Muesli, a breakfast I would have quite often as a child growing up in Germany.
Back then I had no idea what I was actually eating. I just knew I loved it!
Typically, Bircher Muesli is oats soaked in milk and yogurt for that extra rich and creamy outcome.
This recipe is dairy free as I use unsweetened almond milk but you can use any milk, yogurt or kefir!
We are keeping it refined sugar free my using real maple syrup, raisins and apple as a sweetener.
