Nutrition Month 2024 - Overnight Oats

Mar 20th, 2024


March is Nutrition Month!

As Peer Helpers on the HEAL (Health Eating, Active Living) Team, we wanted to share with students some easy recipes for our favourite breakfast food - overnight oats!

Overnight oats provide a delicious and nutritious breakfast or even snack option! These recipes can be crafted with oats, milk of any kind, and flavor-enhancing ingredients like cocoa powder and maple syrup, fruit, and more! These recipes promise a delicious start to your day, and can be made in a big batch in advance to keep you fueled all week.

Overnight oats are highly customizable to suit personal taste preferences and dietary needs. Whether you prefer a sweet and salty mix or want to add a touch of chocolate, you can tailor it to your liking. 

We recommend, for any recipe, to start with a base of 1:1 dry oats to milk (or alternative). Put all of your ingredients into a container like a mason jar or small tupperware and leave in the fridge overnight for the oats to soak and soften. Eat it the next morning cold or warm it up!
