This raw vegan overnight oats recipe is fast and easy to make, and it works great for busy morning schedules. The hardest part is remembering to prepare it the night before!
Oats are a nutritious way to start your day. According to Dr. Greger, “Oats contain anti-inflammatory and antioxidant phytonutrients that can help prevent buildup in the arteries and maintain arterial function. The fiber in oatmeal binds to cholesterol, resulting in lower blood cholesterol levels. In fact, just one serving a day of oats or barley may lower cholesterol.”
Oatmeal is also great for your weight loss goals! “The soluble fiber of oatmeal forms a gel in the stomach, delaying stomach emptying. The oatmeal fiber makes people feel full for a longer period, helping with weight loss. In a double-blinded randomized trial of overweight and obese men and women, almost 90% of the oatmeal-treated subjects reduced their body weight compared to the control group that had no weight loss.”
We like vegan overnight oats because it’s a hearty breakfast that you don’t have to cook in the morning. This recipe makes enough for 4 servings so for us, we can eat it on two different mornings. I don’t recommend keeping it more than two days, though, so you’ll need to finish it quickly.
