Warmer Weather and Longer Days
They’re here! And that means more time outside and less time in the kitchen. So, what better way to embrace the change in seasons, and reduced kitchen time, then with some delicious overnight oats recipes?
Oatmeal is the ultimate healthy comfort food. And it is super healthy. You’ve probably heard oatmeal curbs bad (LDL) cholesterol, and that the fiber in oatmeal helps control blood sugar and helps you feel fuller for longer (so you eat less later in the day). One of our favorite aspects of this beloved breakfast is that you can have lots of fun with your toppings. For spring and summer, we suggest fresh, seasonal fruits! Now try these delicious recipes, perfect for bright and sunny mornings.
Because you can store overnight oats in the fridge for up to five days, they’re the perfect breakfast for busy families and busy mornings all year long. Our version, made with ¼ cup of Cabot Lowfat Vanilla Bean Greek Yogurt, gets topped with mango, banana, coconut and almonds to satisfy your whole crew.
These overnight oats get their vibrant pink hue from frozen raspberries, added at the end in your slow cooker. The color makes them especially fun for serving at events like baby showers (it’s a girl!), wedding showers or brunch for girlfriends. And when raspberry season rolls around, add fresh berries.
Strawberries are one of the most-loved fruits of summer and summer strawberry picking is always a favorite family-friendly activity. This seasonal recipe calls for ¼ cup of sliced, fresh strawberries—so you don’t have to reserve too many after picking.
This make-ahead breakfast (it only takes 10 minutes total and refrigerates for 8 hours overnight) is perfect for spooning into two ball jars to grab and go. Increase the recipe depending on how many people in your house will want to snag one!
These slow cooker oats are the ultimate sweet treat, featuring dark cocoa powder, mini chocolate chips and brown sugar or pure maple syrup. The recipe makes six bowls, so you could easily serve these as a fun dessert. Just top with Cabot Whipped Cream right before you dish them out.
Everyone needs summer adventure fuel, and these granola bars made with oats are ideal for summer road trips, boating and hiking trips. Dates, honey and the yogurt on top makes for a sweet energy boost.
