Are overnight oats healthy?

Yes, these apple pie overnight oats are healthy.  With 10 grams of fiber and 8 grams of protein per serving, this breakfast will help you feel full for longer and contributes to a slower blood glucose release. Oats also are an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals, including magnesium, copper, thiamine and zinc. Oats also contain a type of soluble fiber called beta glucan, which lowers blood glucose and cholesterol levels, reducing risk of heart disease and diabetes.

Are oats overnight good for weight loss?

Yes, they are an easy and filling breakfast that are loaded with nutrient-rich ingredients (see above) that promote healthy weight loss.

Which is healthier: oatmeal or overnight oats?

Both are equally healthy, but it also depends on what you choose to put in your oats. Whole, real food ingredients, like the ones in this recipe, are always the best choice!

Do you eat overnight oats hot or cold?

The answer is both! I usually let them sit out on my counter for an hour while I go to the gym or get ready for my day to get the chill out. Some people like to heat them up in the microwave for a few minutes, it’s totally up to you.

How long do overnight oats last

To make this for meal prep, you can double or quadruple the recipe. You can leave them in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
