[Updated on August 5th]
If you don’t already know by now, I love waking up to a delicious and healthy breakfast! Busy mornings that include an 11 month old (that has already started walking!!), leaves me with very little time to prepare an elaborate breakfast. For those crazy mornings, preparing breakfast the night before is the perfect option. Overnight oats are a healthy and convenient option if you are looking for something on-the-go or you just can’t/don’t want to make breakfast in the morning.
I originally shared this recipe as a perfect Suhoor option for Ramadan, since it can be prepared in advance for your 3AM meal. Recently, I had the opportunity to collaborate with Nour Kaiss, Co-founder of the Souqina App. Nour was interested in learning how to live a healthier lifestyle so we thought it would be great to share with all of you as she goes on this journey. So for the month of August, you can tune into Nour’s YouTube channel for weekly videos for her “Get Fit with Me” Series featuring me!
The first recipe I shared with Nour is these overnight oats because most people struggle with eating a healthy breakfast. Whether it is a lack of time or a lack of ideas for breakfast, these overnight oats solves both of those problems for you. Check out our first video together below:
These overnight oats provide you with a perfect balance of fibre, protein, and healthy fats to help you feel full and energized throughout your morning.
These overnight oats are:
Packed with protein
Healthy fat friendly
Refined sugar free
High in calcium
If you don’t want to have hot oatmeal during the summer days, these cold overnight oats are for you. You can’t go wrong with seasonal sweet Ontario strawberries paired with dark chocolate chips – you will totally feel like you are indulging in chocolate covered strawberries!
Overnight oats are so easy to make and you can change it up by swapping with different fruits, nuts, and seeds. The original recipe calls for chia seeds but Nour and I swapped it with flaxseeds when we were making our overnight oats. If you like your oats a little thinner, add in extra milk. I like to add in my nuts at the top of my jar so they stay crunchy until the morning.
