As the saying goes, “Good things come in threes.” And here are several popular trios to prove it: Peter, Paul and Mary; faith, hope and love; red, white and blue; milk, yogurt and oatmeal. Okay, okay, so maybe the last combination is a new one for you. But if you think about it, these three foods are the ingredients which make up the foundation for the trendy breakfast trend known as Overnight Oats.
If you haven’t tried them yet, please let my words inspire you to hop on the Overnight Oats band wagon! With limitless options for combinations, depending on which flavor milk and yogurt you use and which mix-ins are added, overnight oats can appeal to anyone’s taste buds. Not only are they satisfying in terms of taste, but the milk and yogurt contribute protein and the oats contribute fiber, two nutrients which help fill us up and ensure greater satisfaction in terms of curbing hunger.
Oh, and another awesome feature? As the name implies, you prepare them the night before, so all that’s left for you to do in the morning is some last-minute prep. To sum up, and to keep my trio theme going, overnight oats are: tasty, nutritious and time-saving!
With the busy holiday season approaching, consider overnight oats as a go-to breakfast for you and for guests who will be visiting. Nothing says, “I love you,” like the gift of a homemade meal, even if it’s one which is simple to fix. Here are three unique overnight oats recipes, each offering a different flavor profile, to put on the menu:
- Favor something fruity? Look to Fruity Overnight Oats, which calls for berry-flavored yogurt and fresh berries.
- Wanting a sweeter eat? Try this campfire-inspired recipe for S’mores Overnight Oats.
- Something savory, please! Bacon, Egg and Cheese Overnight Oats marry all our favorite breakfast foods into one bowlful of goodness.
