My favorite meal of the day is by far – breakfast! I think it’s because I LOVE fruit and oatmeal. Plus, I’m nice and hungry when I wake up in the morning.
With that said, you’ve got to try these oatmeal cookie dough overnight oats from a healthy lifestyle blog called Peanut Butter Fingers. With only 300 calories, this breakfast is jam packed with goodness…. whole grains from the oats, calcium from the milk, omega-3s from the ground flaxseed, and a serving of fruit, if you choose.
The name “cookie dough” also seemed to draw me in. The cinnamon, honey, and vanilla-flavored milk give you the illusion of eating something sinful like cookie dough. I think you could add raisins to make this breakfast taste more like a cookie.
Oatmeal Cookie Dough Overnight Oats
3/4 cup old fashioned oats
1 Tbsp. chia seeds (I used wheat germ)
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or milk of your choice), plus a bit more if necessary
1/2 Tbsp. honey
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1. Combine all ingredients together, stirring to mix well.
2. Let sit overnight (or at least an hour) in an airtight container.
3. Stir oats and add another splash of milk if they’re a little too thick.
4. Top with nuts, fresh fruit, granola or desired toppings.
Yield: 1 serving
