About Nutella Overnight Oats

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Most days, we have my cook’s regular Indian-style dishes, but I like to indulge and make something interesting and new over the weekends. I came across these Nutella-flavored oats on Pinterest. It looked and sounded very interesting.

I also had a bottle of Nutella sitting in the refrigerator for a long time. So, without wasting any time, I made these Nutella oats. I made them again the next week when I called some friends over breakfast. Everyone loved the oats, and the bowl was emptied in no time.

Nutella Overnight Oats is a breakfast dish made with rolled oats, milk, chai seeds, honey, and Nutella. It can be prepared in 5 minutes of active working time and meal-prepped for the entire week.

It is a great dish with a good balance of carbohydrates, proteins, and healthy fats and keeps your tummy full for a long time.

Top them with fresh fruits and dried nuts for an extra boost of vitamins and minerals.

Ingredients

Milk – I use whole milk to make overnight oats rich and creamy. For a healthier option, use low-fat or skim milk.

You can also use plant-based milk like coconut, almond, soy milk, etc.

Oats – Rolled oats (old-fashioned oats) are best to make overnight oats as they soak up the flavor without getting mushy.

Nutella – Nutella is the star ingredient of this recipe. If your Nutella has become thick, microwave it for a few seconds.

Others – You will also need chia seeds and maple syrup or honey.

If you want to add protein to your breakfast, add a scoop of vanilla or chocolate protein powder to the oats mixture.

Topping Ideas

Top the ready oats with sliced strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, sliced bananas, or chopped toasted nuts like hazelnuts, almonds, cashew nuts, etc.

You can top them with Nutella or other nut butter like peanut butter or almond butter.

Crunchy granola is also a great topping as it adds texture to the overnight oats.

Chocolate shavings, coconut flakes, etc, are some other topping options.
