It’s tough fitting in a nutritious breakfast before the day gets going… But what if we told you there’s a delicious and convenient solution that takes mere minutes to prepare? Enter raspberry overnight oats! Boom!

This recipe goes beyond convenience. It’s a powerhouse of essential nutrients. Rolled oats are a fantastic source of complex carbohydrates, providing sustained energy to keep you going throughout the morning. They’re also rich in fiber, keeping you feeling fuller for longer and promoting healthy digestion.

The star of the show, raspberries, are a treasure trove of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They add a natural sweetness and vibrant color to the dish, all while boosting your intake of vitamin C and essential antioxidants that fight free radicals in the body.

Customize Your Overnight Oats

This recipe is easily customizable, allowing you to tailor it to your dietary needs and preferences. Feeling a bit sluggish? Add a dollop of Greek yogurt for a protein boost. Want a touch of healthy fat? Include a spoonful of nut butter for added creaminess and satiety.

Overnight oats are the perfect meal prep solution. Simply whip up a batch on Sunday night and enjoy a grab-and-go breakfast throughout the week. They’ll keep you satisfied and energized, ensuring you start your day off on the right foot. Let’s ditch the sugary cereals and embrace the health and flavor of raspberry overnight oats – your body and busy mornings will thank you for it!

Ingredients


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (old-fashioned or quick oats work)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened plant-based milk (almond milk, oat milk, etc.) or low-fat dairy milk
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt (optional, for extra creaminess)
  • 1 tablespoons chia seeds (optional, for added texture and fiber)
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup (or other liquid sweetener)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt (optional)
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen raspberries

Optional ideas (add some or all)

  • Fresh raspberries
  • Sliced almonds or other nuts
  • Chopped dried fruit (cranberries, cherries, etc.)
  • A drizzle of honey
  • A sprinkle of granola

Instructions

  1. In a mason jar or airtight container, combine the rolled oats, milk, yogurt (if using), chia seeds (if using), maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt (if using). Stir well to ensure everything is evenly incorporated.
  2. Gently fold in the raspberries. You can mash some of the berries against the side of the jar to release some of their juices, but be careful not to over-mush them.
  3. Secure the lid on the jar and refrigerate for at least 6 hours, or ideally overnight. The oats will absorb the liquid and soften, creating a creamy texture.
  4. In the morning, grab your jar and give it a quick stir.
  5. Top with your favorite toppings like fresh raspberries, sliced almonds, chopped dried fruit, a drizzle of honey, or a sprinkle of granola.
