Start Your Day Right With This Simple & Filling Overnight Oats Recipe
Muffins are the no-fuss breakfast pastries that rock our busy weekday mornings. They're easy to grab and go and basically the closest thing you can get to a cake first thing in the morning. The problem? They're often packed with processed flour, refined sugar, and other less-than-nutritious ingredients. Plus, if you're gluten-free like me, they simply aren't on the table (pun intended).
According to a 2022 article from Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition, dietary fiber helps reduce hunger and prolong satiety1 (i.e., feelings of fullness). Apples2, carrots3, and oats4 are naturally high in fiber, but the true fiber hero in this upgraded recipe is mindbodygreen's organic fiber potency+, which adds six additional grams(!) of dietary fiber to this easy breakfast.
Fiber-Rich Morning Glory Overnight Oats
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1 scoop organic fiber potency+
- ¼ cup chia seeds
- 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- 2¾ cups almond milk
- Pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt
- 1 cup shredded carrots, divided

If you're bored with your daily breakfast or need some substance to help you stay full, this overnight oats recipe helps promote satiety thanks to the oats, apples, carrots, and organic fiber potency+ (and it's the closest thing you'll get to carrot cake before noon!).*
