16 of CFC’s BEST Overnight Oat Recipes (+ 4 no-oats!)

Oats are a natural superfood full of nutrients and have many health benefits. Several studies show that oats and oatmeal can help induce weight loss, lower blood sugar levels, and are an excellent source of vital vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants.

But even better than these simple dry oats are overnight oats! This great meal is created by leaving oats to soak overnight (hence the name) instead of cooking them in the morning. 

Overnight oats make a quick, easy, affordable, and delicious breakfast everyone will love! (If oats aren’t for you, check out the last four recipes for a similar no-oat breakfast). They’re a fantastic source of fiber and protein and are connected with greater energy levels, improved mood, and weight loss. Soaking overnight helps the starches break down, which improves digestibility and allows your body to absorb more nutrition. 

There are endless ways to get creative while preparing your overnight oat breakfast, such as these 20 recipes:

Chocolate + Cashew Butter Overnight Oats

The taste of these chocolaty oats is child approved, and the nutrients are parent approved!  The cashew butter is heart-healthy and lends a really delicious flavor profile.
