Trying to add variety to your diet? Can’t seem to find the motivation to eat healthily? Here is an easy solution – preparation! All you need is a few minutes of preparation on the weekend, and you’ll be set for the week ahead.
Overnight oats recipes are perfect for those who think they don’t have time to prepare breakfast or need something quick before leaving home for work in the morning. These recipes are simple but yield big results in taste and flavor. Plus, they’re easy to make and perfect for busy mornings.
Here’s what you do: Pick your favorite flavor combo; go sweet or savory; use any ingredients that you might have on hand; throw them together in one bowl and let them sit overnight in your fridge so that the flavors meld together nicely.

Overnight oats are a healthy breakfast staple perfect for busy people on the go. They’re easy to make and store in the refrigerator for up to five days. There are so many reasons to love overnight oats. Here are my top three:
1. Overnight oats can be prepared ahead of time, so they’re perfect for mornings when you have no time to cook or prepare breakfast. All you need is a little prep work the night before and you’ll have an easy, nutritious breakfast waiting for you in the morning.
2. Overnight oats are loaded with fiber, protein, and other essential nutrients such as calcium and vitamin B12. Fiber helps lower your cholesterol, keeps you full longer and aids digestion. Protein aids in muscle repair after a tough workout and reduces hunger cravings so you don’t overeat later in the day.
3. Overnight oats are easy to customize! Each recipe below makes one serving, but feel free to double or triple each recipe according to how many servings you’d like to make at a time. You can also mix and match toppings from each recipe for your own signature flavor combinations!
