Hope you had a fantastic week! I think you’re going to love today’s post 🙂 I was lucky enough to test out the new Quaker Overnight Oats! Overnight oats have been all the hype this past year. To be honest, I never tried them until now. I’m the type of person that wakes up, boils water, and makes oats before heading to the gym. But overnight oats are life-changing. SO GOOD 🙂
Quaker’s Overnight Oat are the first-of-its-kind to be available nationally! They actually created the product after being inspired by the consumer-driven trend all over social media. They became an overnight sensation, literally.
Thank you so much to, The Quaker Oats Company, for sponsoring this blog post and allowing me to try out your new product! All opinions are my own 🙂
When people talked about eating refrigerated oats from the night before, I thought of soggy cold oats, and it didn’t sound that good. So maybe that’s why it took me so long to try it, but I’m so glad I did. Not only are overnight oats tasty, but they are so convenient for a busy and active lifestyle. I’m honestly so excited about this product. Quaker has been a leader in oats for 140 years! It was Quaker’s goal to specifically design each single-serve container to taste great with nutritious benefits included too!
Oats play a huge part in my lifestyle. I often choose oats for my pre-gym, running, or morning carbohydrates.
The flavor combos are so tasty and creative!
Orchard Peach Pecan Perfection
Blueberry Banana & Vanilla Bliss (MY FAVE)
Raisin Walnut & Honey Heaven
Toasted Coconut & Almond Crunch.
The Blueberry Banana & Vanilla Bliss flavor literally tasted like a fresh blueberry muffin!
Quaker Overnight Oats are so easy to prepare. Simply choose your favorite milk, add it to the oats (up to the fill line), stir well, cover, place it in the refrigerator overnight and they’re ready to eat in the morning! I used almond milk in my oats, and they turned out great. Don’t let your oats sit in the fridge longer than 24 hours though. Try to prepare them at least six hours in advance, stir again in the morning, and enjoy.
I tried out the oats before a boot camp workout. They are around 300 calories or less per container (before adding milk/non-dairy options), which is what I usually shoot for before a workout. If you want to add more calories, you can try adding peanut butter to the oats! I mixed peanut butter in the toasted coconut & almond crunch flavor, and it tasted like a dessert! If you use 1/2 cup of vitamin A & vitamin D fortified skim milk, you’ll get at least 11g of protein!
Quaker Overnight Oats have no added colors, no artificial flavors, and contain 100% whole grain oats (and other grains)! They also have a good source of dietary fiber (10 grams of fat or less per container)!
It was so much easier to grab the prepared oats out of the fridge. I didn’t have to wait for the water to boil, wait for oats to cool, or deal with the mess.
The Overnight Oats truly make for a hassle-free morning. If you have kids, making them the night before could be a fun way to get them excited about breakfast. Not to mention, I’m sure it’ll make breakfast run a bit smoother. I wish they would have had these when I was a nanny to two picky breakfast eaters.
Questions for you!
1. Which flavor will you try?
