Oatmeal is one of my go-to meals (and snacks!) during the day. If you remember, a couple of months ago I shared what I eat in a week. I love a good bowl of oatmeal. I’ve always done the traditional oats and hot water kind of oatmeal, although I’ve heard great things about “overnight oats.” I see recipes on social media for them all the time. Well, I’m partnering with Quaker today to show you their latest product—a cool and hearty breakfast just in time for summer. They saw how much everyone loved the overnight oats trend and created a product specifically based on it. It’s ridiculously simple to make and tastes amazing. I don’t say this lightly: these Quaker Overnight Oats are genius.
Quaker looked at what was most popular and trending on social to come up with the four flavors!
During the week, I don’t always have time to whip up a gourmet breakfast. Even though I work from home, I like to get started with working right away. After walking the dogs, I immediately sit down with my coffee, roll up my sleeves, and get to work. The easier, the better for breakfast!
The single-serve cups have oats, fruits, quinoa, flaxseed, and nuts. The first thing I noticed when I opened the container for the first time was how amazing it smelled! I knew it was going to be great right away. They have 100% whole grain oats (and other grains) and no artificial flavors or added colors. The cups are a good source of dietary fiber (10 grams of fat or less per container) and have 10g of protein when prepared with a ½ cup of Vitamin A and Vitamin D Fortified Skim Milk.
To prepare, all you have to do is fill the cup to the fill line with milk, give it a quick stir… and pop in the refrigerator overnight (or at least six hours). I think it’s an easy addition to your nighttime routine. I’ve been pouring the milk into the cups while I make dinner since I’m already in the kitchen. And then in the morning, the oats are fully steeped and ready to be enjoyed.
In the morning, the overnight oats are completely ready to eat! You don’t have to do anything else besides grabbing a spoon.
I find that it’s a great breakfast choice, both in size and taste, but especially for the convenience. (I’ve also had it after a workout when I felt famished with no energy left over to make lunch!) The cups are already a staple in my pantry!
The simplest breakfast choice for a hassle-free morning.
