Flavorful + healthy oatmeal prepped the night before!
I eat oatmeal religiously.
Like every day, I love it so much, and never get tired of it level religiously.
It legit gets me out bed in the morning.
And I am always amazed when people say they don’t like it because I’m a firm believer that everyone can find an oatmeal recipe they like. It’s a blank canvas with endless flavor combination possibilities!
So if you’re one of those people who hasn’t yet acquired a taste for oatmeal (I truly feel bad for you), then hopefully this recipe will convert you to being an oatmeal lover!
Each ingredient in this oatmeal serves its unique purpose:
- Chia seeds for omega 3s, antioxidants, and volume (seriously add chia seeds to your oats and they will like double in size)
- Dates for antioxidants (hello flavonoids and carotenoids!), fiber, and a lil bit of added sweetness
- Walnuts for healthy fats, protein, and added crunch!
- Protein for an extra energy boost, increased satiety, and vibrant vanilla flavor!
Nothing says good morning quite like a warm, hearty bowl of oats!
