I'm often asked where I get inspiration for my recipes, and I always say that travel is a major source. A few weeks ago I was in Cape Cod visiting family, and there's the most adorable coffee shop there called Nirvana. Every single morning my mom and I would stop in for their coconut-y overnight oats, and we quickly became obsessed.
The second I got home I added this to my list of recipes to remake myself. I can't tell you how much I've LOVED having these prepped and on hand the past couple of weeks, and I can't wait for y'all to try!
First of all, overnight oats are one of my favorite energy-packed breakfasts - hence why they make my list of 5 Breakfasts to Fuel You All Day Long. And for more ways to enjoy them, be sure to check out my:
The base of this coconut version, of course, consists of rolled oats (you can always opt for a gluten free option here) and unsweetened shredded coconut. This adds a ton of amazing texture and not to mention health benefits. Coconut is a wonderful source of healthy fats, essential minerals and powerful antioxidants.
For even more thickness and nutrients, don't forget the chia seeds! They're one of my all-time favorite foods thanks to their versatility and ability to make overnight oats super creamy and thick (the way I like them).
Lastly, I love adding in a bit of coconut yogurt - especially my absolute favorite, The Coconut Cult. It's packed full of gut-loving probiotics and blows every other brand out of the water, in my opinion. You can also use my code GOODNESSWITHG for 10% off if you want to try it yourself!
Mix all of your ingredients together and allow the fridge to do the work. Once it sets up, I encourage you to top it off with whatever your heart desires.
