Raspberry Chocolate Coconut Overnight Oats

Try saying that 5 times fast ;)

Oatmeal – one of my favorite whole grains.

Not only is it extremely versatile (you can make them sweet, savory, grind ‘em up into flour, etc) but they are also filling! Every time I have oats, I always walk away feeling satisfied. Aside from the delicious taste, oatmeal is also a nutrition powerhouse:

  • Reduce the risk of Type 2 Diabetes
  • Improve insulin sensitivity
  • Control blood pressure
  • Lower bad cholesterol (LDL)
  • Increase appetite control

No wonder oatmeal was rated #1 for breakfast food satiety :) (source) When I counsel clients, I always ask if they eat oatmeal. If they don’t, I tell them the hundreds of ways to dress it up so it is tasty for them! The banana mashed in usually does the trick.

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you might remember I was on an extreme overnight oatmeal kick this past summer. Well I think it is safe to say this breakfast combo is here to stay!

Sharing is Caring

That is one of the first lessons I was taught when my lovely little sister was born. Since then, I have done a pretty good job at this. Being the nice person that I am, I am willing to share my favorite overnight oatmeal recipe. I still blame you Megan for getting me addicted to this breakfast…okay not really ;)
