Overnight oats are one of my favorite ways to enjoy oats! Even though I work from home and have the luxury of taking extra time to make breakfast, I like prepping them the night before to have them ready to go in the morning for breakfast time!

How I flavor my overnight oats tends to change with the season. In the fall it should come as no surprise that I like adding pumpkin, but one flavor combination that never fails year-round is almond butter and jelly!

Like the classic combination of peanut butter and jelly that reminds me of the lunch I packed for school of all of those years, almond butter and jelly overnight oats are a slightly more refined, yet equally delicious version.

Oats are a great option for breakfast time because of the nutrition they provide. They’re definitely a pantry staple I recommend having on hand. I often share other ways I use them on Instagram too!

For over 140 years, Quaker has been the leading expert in oats, committed to combining science, scale, passion and expertise, and dedicated to researching all that this powerful grain has to offer. Their nourishing oats are produced with high standards of quality, taste and safety.

The oats used in each variety of Quaker Oats – instant, quick, old fashioned and steel cut – are 100% whole grain, and ounce per ounce, they all provide similar amounts of fiber, vitamins and minerals.

Oats & Heart Health

Oats are a simple and great way to support a healthy heart. There’s solid evidence that whole grain oats and oat bran can help lower blood cholesterol thanks to the power of beta-glucan – a soluble fiber, largely unique to oats, that basically tells your liver to pull LDL (bad) cholesterol out of the blood. Then, it binds to some of the cholesterol in your gut, keeping it from ever reaching your bloodstream.  Three grams of soluble fiber from oats as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may help reduce the risk of heart disease.  A serving of Quaker Old Fashioned Oats provides 2 grams.  Another reason why adding oats to your diet in a variety of ways is a great idea!

Oat my! The possibilities of what you can do with oats is truly incredible! From baked goods to risottos, and many more dishes in between, oats are highly versatile, offering countless possibilities to get more taste and nutrition out of what we eat each day. 

From savory to sweet, hot to cold, oats can provide goodness any time of day. I like to think of them like a blank canvas to inspire culinary creativity, which is exactly how I hope you feel about all of these unique, and nutritious recipes that use oats! 

For over 140 years, Quaker has been the leading expert in oats, committed to combining science, scale, passion and expertise, and dedicated to researching all that this powerful grain has to offer. Their high-quality, nourishing oats are produced with high standards of quality, nutrition, taste and safety.

You definitely can’t go wrong with a bowl of oatmeal topped with seasonal fruit and nuts or seeds, but I also challenge you to think outside the oat bowl and use oats in these recipes below that provide taste, texture and nutrition!

Unique Ways to Use Oats This Season

  1. Bake with oats. No doubt December signifies baking at home with holiday flavors and it’s definitely one of my favorite things about the season! Grab that  canister of Quaker Oats and add them to cookies, bars, breads, muffins and more for  great texture. 
  1. Start your day with oats. Oatmeal, overnight oats, and baked oatmeal oh my! Oats have a unique nutrition profile with a balance of both insoluble and soluble fiber (2 grams soluble fiber per ½ cup serving). They also are a good source of the essential vitamins and minerals our bodies need, including vitamin B1, magnesium, phosphorus and manganese.
  1. Make oat flour. Baked goods with oat flour are  popular these days and for good reason. Oat flour adds an amazing texture to everything from pancakes to muffins and everything in between. The best part is you can make your own oat flour at home by pulsing Quaker Old Fashioned Oats in a blender or food processor until it’s a fine flour. 
  1. Explore the savory side of oats. Oats are highly versatile and can add great taste, texture and nutrition to savory dishes as well as sweet. Think savory oat cakes, risottos made with oats instead of rice and more. A ½ cup serving of rolled oats are a good source of fiber and may help support a healthy digestive system. Experts recommend we get 25-38 grams of fiber per day, and unfortunately most of us are not getting enough. A diet rich in whole grains like oats, fruits and vegetables can help us meet our fiber goals for the day.
