This has been an incredibly busy month. My boyfriend and I are moving apartments in a couple of weeks, so we're busy packing boxes and setting up our new kitchen (we have a two-week overlap so are prioritizing getting this very important room set up first).

 

But even without the pending move, my calendar is pretty packed with holiday gatherings and out-of-town visitors this month. While I'm always looking for a quick, delicious, and healthy breakfast, this is especially important now while time is such a commodity.

I love overnight oats (if you do, too, check out my Mango Banana Almond Overnight Oats). I also love pistachios, strawberries, oats, coconut, and chocolate, so I put all of these ingredients together to make a delicious overnight oats recipe.

 

The frozen strawberries create a delicious juice while they thaw overnight, and the pistachios offer a satisfying crunch.

 

The best part? This breakfast will stick with you all morning. It offers 21 grams of protein (42 percent of your daily need) and 8 grams of fiber (32 percent of the daily value), as well as healthy fat to help keep you fueled for those busy December mornings!
