As you already know, I have quite the obsession with breakfast. Breakfast food is just so much fun! Especially when it’s quick, easy, healthy, and tastes like dessert like this Oatmeal Cookie Overnight Oats recipe!
Now that it’s almost summer here in Texas, I’m all about these overnight oats! While I love regular hot oats, I always like to mix it up with cold oat recipes around this time of year. And since this recipe tastes shockingly like a real oatmeal cookie (my favorite type of cookie, in case you were wondering), this recipe is just an all around win!
Side note: If you’re as obsessed with overnight oats as I am (or really just easy, healthy, and delicious recipes), be sure to check out my new book, A Month Of Healthy Eats For The Busy Girl! It’s a great resource for achieving your healthy eating goals in a realistic and delicious way. We’re talking overnight oats (of course), tacos, pizza, and even dessert! Meals are planned for you, grocery lists are made, pre-made workouts, and no thinking required. Head over to the shop page to check it out, friend!
Here are some essentials for making overnight oats:
The end. So easy, right?? This Oatmeal Cookie Overnight Oats recipe also makes a great post-workout recovery, by the way. My workouts have been INTENSE lately, and at the end I’m super desperate for a good recovery (has anyone tried the Beach-Ready Total-Body Workout???)! These oats have a great blend of protein and healthy carbs that are perfect for a delicious workout recovery.
Also, a note for my vegan friends: Replace the greek yogurt with coconut yogurt, and you’re good to go!
Personally, there’s nothing I enjoy more when it comes to food than a breakfast that tastes like dessert. I think part of this is because of my major sweet tooth problem and the fact that I pretty much grew up actually eating real desserts for breakfast, haha! Now that I’m a healthy eater, I enjoy making breakfast foods that taste like dessert but are still good for you (like the Strawberry & Cream Overnight Oats or Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats)!
