Easy Overnight Oats with Quinoa Crumble, Chocolate, and Coconut

1

When the school year rolls around, switching from pool to school means finding simpler ways to kick off the day. These easy overnight oats offer a fast and delicious solution that’s also quite nutritious!

These easy overnight oats are topped with a quick quinoa crumble that piles on another dose of fiber, protein, and healthy fats. You can actually bake a larger batch of the crumble, and keep it in an airtight container on the counter. Although it will keep for quite a while, I usually try to limit room temperature storage to 1 or 2 weeks. Then I freeze leftovers in plastic freezer bags for optimum freshness. The natural oils in grains and nuts can cause them to go rancid and taste “off” if stored in a warm climate for too long.

The original recipe for these easy overnight oats uses mango, as pictured. But we also like this breakfast with fresh berries. And I might even skip the fruit if we don’t have any on hand.
