Overnight Oats, guys. I just can’t.get.enough.

Remember how I used to turn up my nose at Overnight Oats and how my world was changed back in February? Yep, I have only been eating Overnight Oats for four months, and I am completely obsessed.



In love.

In fact, Overnight Oats are now my favourite workday breakfast. They are just so easy and portable! I’ve been waking up early to run a few days a week lately (gotta get fit for my wedding in August!!), and Overnight Oats completely save me – I can jump in the shower, grab my Oats, and run out the door to work.

Mango and coconut make Tropical Overnight Oats! | breakfast for dinner

I’ve found a delicious new flavour combination – Tropical Overnight Oats. It takes my basic Overnight Oats recipe and adds chopped mango and coconut flakes. I could eat mangoes every day forever – I think they are the ultimate tropical flavour.

Mangoes taste like endless summer – and they are currently on sale at my local grocery store, so we are eating lots of mangoes! Which is fine by me 😉

Let’s get tropical! Give Tropical Overnight Oats a whirl.

And if you’re looking for other favourite combinations, I love Peanut Butter and Banana Overnight Oats, Carrot Cake Overnight Oats, and Coconut Overnight Oats.

Recipe Notes

Psst, if you have coconut extract, stir in a small splash for extra tropical flavour!
