Superfood Overnight Oats

Print

I found a basic overnight oats recipe a couple of years ago on Facebook buried in the comments of a post. I have been experimenting with different ingredients ever since, and this is my favorite so far.

This recipe is so versatile. You can mix and match different types of berries, top with unsweetened coconut, banana slices, or a sprinkle of Ceylon cinnamon. The options are endless. And, with powerful superfoods like chia seeds, maca powder, and berries, it will keep you satisfied straight through until lunch.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Overnight oats are a great way to have breakfast ready to go when you are! Oats are a very good source of phosphorus as well as magnesium, dietary fiber, and protein. This recipe, with chia seeds and flax meal, provide fiber and healthy fats, in addition to antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits, as chronic oxidative stress and inflammation are risk factors for the development of cancer. Maca powder contains glucosinolates, which break down into several biologically active compounds that are currently being studied for possible anticancer effects (studies have shown anticancer effects in cells and animals, while results in humans have been less clear). Overnight oats are very versatile, so you can choose whatever flavors you’d like using different fresh or frozen fruits, seeds, and nuts.
