Cookie Dough Overnight Oats (Prepared Healthy & Vegan)

Firstly, let me ask you a question. So, tell me, did you like eating cookie dough as a kid? I totally did. Therefore, I decided to come up with my own cookie dough recipe. This is my play on that delicious treat. I have recreated the taste of cookie dough. But into a healthier version for you to experience. Cookie dough overnight oats with chocolate chips are the breakfast I have been eating a few times a week on repeat. I love how quickly this is to prep the night before. Simply make a few Mason Jars of these overnight oats on Sunday to meal prep my breakfast for the week. 

Chia Seed Health Benefits

To start with, one ounce of chia seeds packs a punch fiber in the fiber department. One ounce is equivalent to about 2 tablespoons of chia seeds. In 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, you will provide your body with 11 grams of fiber. If you don’t know this, fiber helps keep you full. For example, by increasing your fiber intake, you will feel fuller for longer between meals. So, no more growling stomachs in that morning meeting. That is why this cookie dough overnight oat recipe is perfect for a filling breakfast.

Key Nutrients of Chia Seeds

Calcium | Manganese | Magnesium | Phosphorus | Zinc | Vitamin B3 | Vitamin B1 | Vitamin B2 | Fiber | Antioxidants | Protein | Omega-3 Fatty Acids

For example, chia seeds also contain decent amounts of protein. Since this is a seed, this would be a notable protein option for vegans or vegetarians. The ancient Mayan word for strength is “chia”. Chia seeds definitely live up to that quality. These tiny seeds pack a substantial nutritional punch. In addition, they are such a wonderful energy-boosting ingredient to add to any dish. In addition, studies have also found that consuming chia seeds can help lower cardiovascular risks by up to 17%. There are also benefits to reduced cholesterol levels, weight loss, and increased satiety by adding chia seeds into the diet (1).
