I don’t know about you guys, but now that fall is upon us, I am having a tough time crawling out from under my warm blankets in the morning. If there is any part of my regular morning routine I can trim a few seconds off of that will allow me some additional seconds under the covers, I am all for it.
One shortcut I have found that helps out a ton is to prepare breakfast the night before. But what do you do when you are craving something like French toast or pancakes with pure maple syrup? Those dishes cannot very well be prepared the night before.
Enter healthy overnight oats.
By taking just a few minutes to throw a few healthy ingredients into a jar the night before, you can wake up to a healthy overnight oats recipe, without breaking a sweat or having to endure the cold sooner than necessary.
Not only have I come up with a way to satisfy those sweet-tooth cravings, by adding ingredients such as cinnamon, which helps support healthy blood sugar levels and heart health and has a plethora of other impressive health benefits, but I have also added chia seeds, which are rich in antioxidants that may help protect the body from free radicals, aging, and disease.
These healthy overnight oats are chockful of fiber, which is known to help reduce blood pressure. Top it off with a scoop of Ageless Multi-Collagen to help support healthy skin, hair, and nails, gut, joint, and bone strength, in addition to athletic performance, recovery, and an active lifestyle.
This recipe is sweet and savory and will get your day started right! (PS: If you are looking for other breakfast recipes, I have compiled a list of my personal healthy recipes here.
