These cookie dough overnight oats are like dessert for breakfast! They’re vegan, gluten free, protein packed, and full of flavor. With natural sweetness from the coconut sugar and chocolate chips involved, these take your oatmeal game to a whole new level.
So, I leave for college on Monday, yet I haven’t even started packing. SOS.
Like, I have all my clothing I need to pack laid out on the floor, along with my shoes and other things. I have the food I’m packing (see my Instagram stories for proof about how much I’m bringing) upstairs in the kitchen, and micilanious things laying around my room. Thank god for Bed Bath and Beyond pickup services, because if we had to haul all my dorm stuff across the country (well, California to Colorado isn’t that far, but we are flying), I don’t think we’d survive.
So, you could say I’m a bit stressed, and one way to fix that is with cookie dough overnight oats!
I was never a cookie person growing up, and thought I hated it for years. I guess I’m making up for lost time now, because I have raw cookie dough every chance I get, and I’m baking cookies left and right.
How did my parents let me convince myself I had cookies and cookie dough?! They should’ve force fed them to me like they did baby carrots and green beans! Cookie dough > vegetables any day, people. It’s a good thing I like cookies now, because the dough is the best part. It’s so sweet and delicious- perhaps even better than the actual cookie. I love all types of dough- chocolate chip, sugar cookie, snickerdoodle, etc.
Today, I’m taking my love of cookie dough and combining it with one of my favorite foods- overnight oats. I didn’t know what kind of cookie dough to make, so we’re keeping it versatile for today. However, I foresee a snickerdoodle and sugar cookie version coming in the future 😉
These taste like dessert, but it’s HEALTHY. Well, everything is healthy in moderation, and having these for breakfast everyday is moderation, right? Right. They’re naturally sweet from the coconut sugar, filled with chocolate chips, are thick and creamy, and versatile. I topped mine with fruit, peanut butter, and more chocolate chips (not optional). How would you top yours?
When you make these, don’t forget to send me a photo on Instagram @tennishealthfitness!
