Overnight Oats 3-Ways!

I personally love overnight oats (especially when done 3-ways) because they offer something for everyone. Oats and seeds are ultra nutritious, so you are getting a healthy breakfast made from whole ingredients.

Oats offer fiber and protein, keeping you full all the way until lunch. Plus, the best overnight oats offer tons of flavor, from sugar cookie to strawberry shortcake! With oatmeal, you can have all the flavors of your favorite dessert without all of the sugar and empty carbs. Sounds like a win, right? I agree!

When it comes to overnight oats, I even created this How To Make the Best Overnight Oats article so that you can understand the ins and outs of creating a deliciously unique quick breakfast.

Health Benefits of Overnight Oats

Oatmeal is a healthy breakfast consisting of whole grains, protein, fiber, and antioxidants. Oats are a whole grain that comes in gluten-free varieties, so they are safe for gluten-sensitive folks.

For the most bang for your nutritional buck, be sure to buy gluten-free certified whole rolled oats. The more whole the oats are, the more vitamins and minerals they contain. 

Benefits to eating oats include weight loss, reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, and lower blood sugar levels. Regularly eating oats is also linked to lowered cholesterol levels. Whole grains are an essential part of an everyday diet, so don’t skip on the oats!

Quality oatmeal is the most important part of creating the best oats, but you also need other healthy ingredients to add to your mix. It doesn’t matter what diet or lifestyle you stick to.

Vegans, gluten-sensitive, and other dieters can all enjoy this healthy breakfast. You can make your overnight oats taste like anything! For example, if you love chocolate, adding cocoa powder and maple syrup makes for a healthy, yet sweet oatmeal!
