Raspberry White Chocolate Overnight Oats
I grew up thinking that I didn't really like oatmeal all that much. It just always tasted slimy to me, and I had a hard time getting it down no matter which flavor I tried. The Quaker Honey Nut flavor was the closest I ever came to actually liking any of those instant oatmeal packs, but for the most part– I just stayed away from the stuff.
That is, until I discovered cold oatmeal. As it turns out, I love chilled oatmeal! Whether it's a cooked-and-then chilled recipe (like this one) or overnight oats that aren't cooked at all, as long as they're cold– I'm on board!
Uncooked oats (like in the ones in this Overnight Oats recipe) are supposedly more nutritious and even help relieve serious gastrointestinal discomfort and lower bad cholesterol.
And conveniently… these Raspberry White Chocolate Oats taste amazing too! Not to mention overnight oats are perfect for on-the-go breakfasts since you do all the prep work the night before. Say goodbye to gross shakes and sugary granola bars! This easy recipe is going to be your new favorite grab-and-go healthy weekday breakfast. It will keep you feeling full, longer, and the complex carbs will provide you with a steady stream of energy throughout the morning.
Preparation is simple: place oats in a container you can easily take with you in the morning. Add milk (almond milk is great!), raspberries, a little bit of honey, almond slices, and a few (or more!) white chocolate morsels. Let it all sit and soak overnight, and voila– in the morning, all you need to add is a spoon!
Raspberries, white chocolate, and almonds are one of my very favorite flavor combinations of all time. But I've also enjoyed making overnight oats using chocolate almond milk too. And, really, you can make just about any combo you'd like with this basic recipe if you want to get little creative. Overnight oats are so easy and versatile, just one of the many reasons I love them so much!
- 1/2 cup rolled oats (I've used both old fashioned and quick oats)
- 1/2 cup + an extra splash almond milk
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1/2 tbsp white chocolate morsels (more or less to taste)
- 2 tbsp raspberries (more or less to taste)
- 1 tbsp sliced almonds (more or less to taste)
Place the oats in a container that has a sealing lid (a mason jar works well).
Pour in the milk and honey, stir to make sure all of the milk reaches all of the oats and that the honey is mixed in enough to sweeten every bite!
Add the white chocolate, raspberries, and almonds (mix in if desired or leave on top).
Chill overnight. Serve in the morning!
