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.
Are oats good for weight loss? Yup! I love cooking with oats, especially to make overnight oats (if you do, too, check out my mango overnight oats recipe). 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, the crushed pistachio offers a satisfying crunch, and the unsweetened cocoa powder sweetens without added sugar. I love making cocoa overnight oats!
The best part about these oats with strawberries? This high-protein overnight oatmeal breakfast will stick with you all morning. The overnight oats recipe 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!
