Holiday Overnight Oats – Egg Nog & Gingerbread

Quick and easy breakfast oats that still keep you in the holiday mood!

Did you know you can still enjoy the flavors of the holidays in a super-healthy way? If you like the taste of cinnamon, nutmeg and even cloves, these recipes are for you. 

In case you haven’t heard of them, overnight oats are raw oats that have been soaked overnight in liquid. Often added to them are a bunch of delicious fruits, nuts, seeds, spices, coconut yogurt and a touch of maple syrup or whatever else you like to bring them to life.  

Oats are a slowly digested fiber that continuously sends glucose or “high-energy” fuel to the brain. They are an excellent source of soluble fiber, the types that remove cholesterol from our body. And they also contain iron, protein, magnesium and zinc.  

These holiday chilly oats are low in calories, an excellent source of fiber (especially soluble fiber), contain no added-refined sugars, and are a great source of protein and an excellent source of both calcium and iron!
