Overnight oats are one of the easiest breakfasts to make. I love that it requires no cooking at all, and I have the freedom to mix any of my favorite ingredients together to make a totally delicious breakfast. I made Raspberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats that’s topped with pistachio and lemon zest. Sounds fancy right? Like a dessert for breakfast – except without a boatload of sugar and this one is good for you!
The inspiration for this dessert came from my favorite cake combo – raspberry cream with pistachio layer cake. I totally want a slice. I’m pregnant right now and really trying to watch my sugar intake. (The glucose test for gestational diabetes is coming up and I really want to pass). That said, I combined all the healthy stuff like oats, plain yogurt, maple syrup, raspberries, and nuts to keep me full yet satisfied. Hope you like this one!
