Gosh, I love oats. I would have oats for breakfast like literally every morning! Oats are just so healthy and you can do basically anything with it. So we all know that oats are like super healthy, but here are the real benefits of oats:
- Oats are loaded with vitamins, minerals as well as antioxidant plant compounds.
- It contains a powerful soluble fibre (Beta-Glucan)
- Oats can lower cholesterol levels
- It can improve blood sugar levels
- It’s super filling!
- Oats can relieve constipation (all that fibre!)
The only problem for me was it takes a while to cook, and me always being late for work, I just don’t have the time to cook the oats! So when I heard about overnight oats, I just had to try it! I read up about it on the internet and made my own recipe!
1/2 cup oats
Milk of choice to cover the oats
1 serving of whey protein
1 tsp cocoa powder
Fruit (I like to use dried cranberries or raisins, you can even top the oats with more fruit, such as banana or strawberries)
1 tsp peanut butter
1 tsp desiccated coconut
Mix everything, put in fridge overnight and enjoy the next morning, either microwaved or cold. I like to add my peanut butter the next morning and heat it in the microwave so it melts everywhere! 😍
