10 Creative Overnight Oats Flavors! Healthy Breakfast Recipes

(upbeat music) – Hey Munchies Welcome to the channel if you're new

I'm Alyssia and today I'm taking on what's become a classic healthy and meal-prepable breakfast Perfect for back to school or a work breakfast Overnight oats And I'm adding a twist to it 10 twists actually because I've got 10 flavor combos I'm about to share that might seem a little surprising but don't knock 'em til you try 'em

I also have a free ebook with these flavor combos and full recipes with nutrition for you and it's available to download in the description First up: ♪ Lemon poppy seed and blueberry ♪ – [Alyssia] I start with my base overnight oats recipe which is just oats, I prefer rolled but quick cooking work fine too and milk I use almond milk unless noted which keeps them dairy free but you can use any milk you prefer Then I can go crazy to add flavor For this one I've got lemon zest and a bit of juice

Poppy seeds, blueberries, and sweetener of choice Use whatever works for you Liquid or granulated Add everything to a jar, mix it up, throw it in the fridge and tomorrow you've got a refreshing overnight oatmeal waiting for you This one is light and fruity and I always prefer to eat overnight oats cold which keeps it an easy on the go meal too

Next up: ♪ Apple pie overnight oats yeah ♪ – [Alyssia] In addition to our oats and milk base, for this one we've got applesauce, diced apple, chopped walnuts, maple syrup, cinnamon, ground ginger, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt Into the jar it goes (soft music) The beauty of overnight oats is that there's no prep the day you get to enjoy it And the little prep that there is the night before is so dang easy In the morning this one tastes just like apple pie, but cold

Like when you're too lazy to heat up the leftovers which is still definitely not a mistake How about: ♪ You got peanut butter ♪ ♪ You got banana ♪ ♪ Bacon too yeah that's the Elvis, baby ♪ – [Alyssia] Simple but delicious The base plus banana, peanut butter, and a little maple syrup for sweetness That alone would suit me but it wouldn't be Elvis flavored without that bacon I like to add a cooked and crumbled bacon the next morning so it's still crisp

That savory-salty bacon mixed with the banana and rich peanut butter, it's good on its own and it doesn't disappoint in these oats either We're twisting the flavors more as we go ♪ Overnight oats ♪ ♪ Overnight oats ♪ ♪ Mexican chocolate ♪ ♪ Overnight oats ♪ ♪ Overnight oats ♪ – [Alyssia] I'm adding cocoa powder, coconut sugar You could use brown sugar Cinnamon, vanilla extract, a pinch of nutmeg, and cayenne for the kick

(upbeat music) Wow Mexican chocolate works perfect for overnight oats because the heat actually comes from the cayenne not the temperature The cool overnight oats help to balance and keep this combination palatable and tasty We're cooling down with: ♪ Watermelon coconut lime overnight oats ♪ – [Alyssia] Watermelon and oatmeal? Why didn't I think of it sooner? We start with the base and I'm using coconut milk this time as well as watermelon juice, yogurt of choice, dairy-free is totally fine Lime zest and juice, shredded coconut, and a pinch of salt

(upbeat music) Fruity, creamy, and zesty all in one In the morning I like to add additional cubed watermelon and toasted coconut flakes for topping Beautiful, refreshing, naturally sweet, and totally delicious Let's get rich in flavor again with: ♪ Tahini mocha overnight oats ♪ ♪ Ooooooooooo oats ♪ – [Alyssia] We're adding tahini paste as well as coffee, cocoa powder, honey, and vanilla extract (upbeat music) It sounds strange but it tastes divine

Coffee and chocolate are a classic but many don't realize how well tahini pairs with sweet and bitter tones too Why not add this nutritionally boosting ingredient if you can? This one isn't a classic but it should be ♪ Hazelnut apricot raspberry overnight oats ♪ – [Alyssia] Feel free to switch up your milks to make these even more fun I tried hazelnut milk for this one And remember, I have an entire episode showing you how to make your own nut milks and tons of flavors that you can get creative with

For this one, I've also got apricot jam, diced dried apricots, fresh raspberries, chopped hazelnuts, and a pinch of salt (upbeat music) Oh man Not only is this one vibrant from the fruit and tang, but the nuts add a great textural crunch I top it off with coconut flakes for a natural sweetness to balance the tang, mmm mmm, so good We're back to dessert flavors with: ♪ Chocolate ginger pecan ♪ – [Alyssia] I switched up the milk again with pecan milk this time as well as cocoa powder, maple syrup for sweetness, ground ginger, and chopped pecans

And that's all we need to get started (rock music) It's rich and delicious as is but I like to add cacao nibs You can use chocolate chips, candied ginger, and coconut flakes as toppings for a real treat This one has fall pie written all over it Okay, we're done with the chocolate flavors

We're lightening up with: ♪ Sesame matcha overnight oats ♪ – [Alyssia] We need matcha powder but we've also got almond butter, diced dates for sweetness, sesame seeds, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt (upbeat music) The key to enjoying anything with matcha is making sure you use a high quality and vibrant green brand I find that buying the most expensive option at the store tends to do the trick, unfortunately The good news is that it will last you awhile because you don't need much It won't be bitter but actually a tad sweet which pairs really well with a savory-sweet almond butter and nutty sesame seeds

Last maybe weirdest but definitely not least: ♪ Gotta get those overnight oats ♪ ♪ Got strawberry goat cheese walnuts baby ♪ ♪ Gotta get those overnight oats ♪ – [Alyssia] Strawberries, crumbled goat cheese, chopped walnuts, honey, fresh basil, and a pinch of salt (upbeat music) This flavor combo is a true classic but perhaps a bit odd for overnight oats Still, it does not disappoint Savory goat cheese compliments sweet strawberries perfectly and the basil adds an extra fresh element to the easy breakfast And there you go

10 flavor twists on our favorite healthy breakfast, overnight oats They are called flavor twists for a reason They aren't traditional but they aren't a mistake either For all these recipes, you can download the free ebook in the description of the video I hope you enjoy it
