Are these overnight oats healthy?

I am not a nutritionist or dietician, but in my opinion any oatmeal recipe is a healthy breakfast! So yes, Maple Brown Sugar Overnight Oats are a great choice.

These simple overnight oats are packed with protein from the greek yogurt and complex carbs from the oats. The oats themselves are whole grain and a great source of vitamins, minerals, & fiber too. Plus when you add fresh fruit and healthy fat sources (like nuts) on top of this oatmeal, it will keep you full for hours!

Ingredients needed for Maple Brown Sugar Overnight Oats…

Maple Brown Sugar Overnight Oats only require 6 simple ingredients! They’re healthy, wholesome, and ingredients you probably already have on hand.

  • Greek Yogurt: Greek yogurt is the base of this overnight oats recipe! It adds protein and a deliciously creamy texture. You’ll need 1 cup plain greek yogurt!

How to make these simple oats…

In my opinion, overnight oats are the easiest breakfast recipe you could ever make! You simply mix all the ingredients together and place in the fridge overnight. Or for a few hours! And that’s all you need to prepare a healthy, delicious, and satisfying breakfast for the entire week.

  1. In a large mixing bowl combine the yogurt, almond milk, light brown sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla extract until smooth.  I recommend using a whisk!
  2. Next add in the oats and a sprinkle of salt.  Combine evenly.
  3. Place in an airtight container in the fridge overnight or at least for a few hours.
  4. When serving, add some toppings (fruit, nuts, nut butter, etc.) and enjoy!

Meal prepping Brown Sugar Overnight Oats…

Overnight oats are the perfect meal prep breakfast recipe! All you have to do is prepare the oats at the beginning of the week and keep in the fridge. Then you will have a satisfying, healthy, and delicious breakfast ready to go for the week ahead!

You could prepare this recipe in a large container and simply add to your bowl each morning, but I love to take things an extra step and separate into jars! It’s cute, functional, and makes this simple meal prep recipe even more of a grab & go friendly breakfast.
