Cookie Dough Overnight Oats for your Inner Cookie Monster

Cookie Dough Overnight Oats for your Inner Cookie Monster

D'oh! Your inner cookie monster needs a bit of a reprieve. Instead of opting for cookies, wake up in the morning to cookie dough overnight oats instead. Make this the night before, leave it in your fridge, and be greeted with oatmeal and cookies. You'll have ten extra minutes to relax and enjoy your morning with a bit of mindfulness. Soak up the sun or walk on sunshine. Do both. The world is your oyster. @beamingvegan's cookie dough overnight oats is really the answer to all your woes. It's naturally sweetened with dates, it's creamy, and it has a bit of a bite. It's packed with tons of fibre, too.

Maybe you love smoothies, but don't really love how hungry you feel an hour or so after you drink one. Make your smoothies oat-standing by adding oats to them. They won't be floating around helplessly like alphabet noodles in alphabet soup. Pulse them before you add them to your smoothies so that they disperse evenly throughout the drink. Adding oats in your smoothies is a fail-safe trick that will increase your fibre intake while making your smoothie thicker and equally as delicious.
