An Easy Breakfast That Beats Belly Bloat: Overnight Oats

I always go to bed with the best intentions to wake up early, enjoy the morning, and fuel my body with a satisfying breakfast, but things don't always work out that way — did I mention I'm not much of a morning person? Luckily, I've found a recipe that requires about 30 seconds of preparation the night before and ensures that I get to fulfill at least one of these morning goals every day. Meet the easiest breakfast of all time: overnight oats. It does not get any better than mixing a few ingredients together before bed and grabbing a spoon when you're ready to eat a delicious breakfast.

High in protein and fiber, this whole-grain recipe will keep hunger at bay all morning long. Even better, this recipe supports healthy digestion and can even help you beat belly bloat. I've toyed around with a number of iterations of the basic recipe with slight changes, but this combination of ingredients including chia seeds and slivered almonds has become my go-to mix. Try it out for yourself tonight.

Notes

I'm a big fan of So Delicious's unsweetened coconut milk in this recipe, but any nut or cow's milk will do the job. Just be sure to stick with the 1:1 ratio.

I topped off this jar with blackberries, raspberries, a few slivered almonds, and a slight drizzle of maple syrup, but feel free to get creative with your favorites. This recipe is incredibly versatile.
